It does the job quickly and it's safe. I even got a refund at some point. I'd like to give feedback from the app, but the only opportunity it gives is exactly when I'm in a hurry trying to make a screenshot of the completed transfer, so I always end up clicking on "Maybe Later" to make it to away. Otherwise it's only possible to write here, or to send an email to the local office (and be probably dismissed).

It was a good app before, quick and easy way to send money. But since September Trustly feature (sending money to the recepient's bank account) doesn't work. I tried three times and all transactions failed. The support team suggests to send money to the recepient's card but there is a commission for each transaction. I hope all the trouble with Trustly is not organized to force WU users to pay the commission. I am on the verge of deleting the app. Please fix Trustly feature!
