Great UI, which makes it easy to navigate and intuitive to use. However, recently I experienced errors when trying to sell stocks. It kept saying something along the lines of "Error placing order". UPDATE: I just want to add that you should expect the occasional jump-scare where you lose 90% of your stock value because the app is glitching on graphs and real-time values. Definitely keeps you on your toes, if anything...

Thanks for leaving a review. We are sorry that you were having issues with the app. The issue was caused due to a third party, however, if you experience any similar issues please reach out to reviews@freetrade.io and we will help to resolve them.

They have given up. Don't waste your money or time on them. I have been trying to close my account for over a month now without any help. I have raised multiple chats, emails. They keep trying to charge my account for my subscription even though I am trying to cancel. So disappointed.

Transfers can take around 4-6 weeks to finalise with the other provider. Whilst our Transfers team does monitor their inbox, most of their time is spent processing the transfers, and so responses can be slower. They will get back to you as soon as possible. Please can you email reviews@freetrade.io so that we can look into your fees?

Terrible experience topping up for the first time. Using THEIR process through the app. These days I expect money to arrive instantly. They told me a week later, once I further enquired, that the name on transfer account didnt match the account. (like they've never seen a middle name before apparently) Terrible systems, terrible service (though they reply straight away, you see no results unless you badger them). Not a service I wish to store significant sums with. Withdrawing my membership!!

Sorry to hear about your experience. Due to strict security protocols, we require banking information to match, once your cash is applied to your account you will not experience the issue again. Our goal is to create the best possible app for our customers, so your thoughts, ideas, and suggestions are helping us identify areas to improve on.
