Loving this app in these times.
I like the app I don’t care too much for the service.
I find it funny that you can send someone money three times in one month but it does not factor in the dollar amounts.
if I want to send someone $5000 today tomorrow and the next day that is considered three times so the person has gotten $15,000 from me.
that’s a lot of money for some people now if I send somebody a dollar today and a dollar the next day and a dollar the next day that’s only $3 dollars.
it limits you by how many times you send a month but not by dollar amount. that is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. The reason why I say this is the dumbest thing? they say it is to stop money laundering money”!
laundering should be by dollar amounts not by how many times you have sent. Clearly a dollar today a dollar tomorrow and a dollar the next day is not even laundering that is by far, so far from ever hurting an economy.
Even $100 today $100 tomorrow and 100 and the next day that is not laundering. If anything that is trifling if someone made that low of money dealing and wanted to launder $300 and its not even worth their while.
But whatever. Who am I?
So I say all of that to say,…. during these time of covid and world issues people need help. So I send what I can when I can and on the fourth time, my friend in Another country was turned away. You can one get money three time a month.
Great App though
