My entire experience with this app is disappointing. Signing up took 2 full days before my confirmation email came through. I needed to reset my password, and the 4 links I had to send myself didn’t work. Then when I finally got that sorted with a consultant, I log into the app and it crashes because the app wants to activate Touch ID on an iPhone X. The navigation tab on the left pops up and then doesn’t go away, so I have to close it and go back into the app.

I then discover that to put ZAR into my Shyft wallet, I need to leave the app, log into my banking app, and do an EFT into my own wallet. How is this a universal bank? How is going from one app to the next any easier than the 1 page document I had to fill out at the branch, where I needed to go anyway because this great big disruptive product of yours doesn’t work.

So after all of this mission, I’m not using the app anyway because leaving one app to use another app successfully makes NO sense. I can’t even imagine the process of having ZAR refunded into my transactional account.

Nothing about the app experience has been functional, let alone disruptive. You can’t just call a product disruptive. It needs to BE disruptive.

Best customer support I've ever received

I urgently needed a physical card before traveling and, when I explained this to Tauriq in Support, he was more than helpful and liaised with the courier to deliver my card in record timing.

I highly recommend this app based the quality of the app itself and efficiency of the support.


How did I ever live without it?!

This is the best app I’ve downloaded this year. It’s seamless UX makes it a pleasure to use and, whenever I have any issues, the support team is there to help. It has changed the way I shop online and has made traveling so easy. Great work to everyone involved!
