Needs work on Customer Service
I was able to reach customer service. We were going back and forth promptly about verifying my bank account and suddenly all communication stopped from Uphold. I was told they would get back with me shortly to confirm whether I’d be verified or not and it’s been over 30 hours. I spent so much of my day yesterday putting this all together and they just stopped communicating.
I’d really like to use Uphold to store Crypto.
UPDATE: Its been 3 days now since I tried to add my bank account. I’m at the verge of tears due to frustration with the Uphold team. I’ve given them every document they’ve asked for to confirm my identity and more and they are still unsatisfied and they still wait hours to reply. I’ve lost sleep stressing over this. If I had more options to invest higher amounts of money into Crypto, I would’ve done it by now. I want it to be over. I just want to speak to someone who actually wants to help, but everyone seems like a trained robot.
We are sorry to hear about your experience with the verification process. This is not what we want anyone using our service to go through. We would like to help you get this issue resolved. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
First of all, I’m not the type of person to even write a review...for any reason. I am a disabled veteran with no time to be screwed over. But I was so blatantly dismissed as a customer that I am compelled to write this one.
I didn’t even get the chance to fund my account. I couldn’t get the 2FA to work with my IPhone 8, so they locked my account. Fine. As a customer though , I felt like they should’ve helped me get back into my account. It would make sense right? But no... it didn’t happen. They just told me they couldn’t “approve” my identity and basically blocked me. But they have my drivers license, address and a photo of me. They basically taking peoples information and giving them NOTHING in the form a service in return.
We are sorry to hear about your expierience while signing up for Uphold -- this is NOT what we want ANYONE using our service to go through and would like to work to resolve the issue. Please email marketing@Uphold.com
Faster and cheaper than the competitors
This app seemed like too good to be true years ago when I first got it. Now that I buy BTC everyday O revisited it and realized it’s FASTER and LESS EXPENSIVE than it major competitors at least when new accounts are compared. You can actually receive BTC from this app within 5-7 days from the first day unlike Coinbase which can take 10-14 days. It’s good for buying BTC with debit or credit. Otherwise go to Paxful.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
