Finally said bye to my traditional bank

Been with a traditional bank since my first job. It was just the one my parents used, so I did too. Now, I have a banking account actually fits my needs and helps with my savings goals. The app is easy to navigate and aesthetically pleasing, and the savings APY is really great. Plus, I have an adopted pup and love that I can support the Humane Society just by using my card as I normally would. Pretty cool to have a banking account that gives back to causes like that. As far as the card, it’s matte black and gold, which is so different than any other I’ve seen. I’m very happy that I switched to Porte! 🖤

Long story short, their app produces a direct deposit enrollment form with their old routing number on it. THEY WILL NOT FIX THE PROBLEM IMMEDIATELY AND GET YOUR MONEY TRANSFERRED TO THEIR NEW ROUTING NUMBER. That’s too reasonable & logical of a thing to do.

They said they changed to a new routing number after April 17th, 2021. I didn’t open my account with Porte well after April 17th, 2021. However the direct deposit enrollment form on their app is still producing a downloaded form with their pre-April 17th routing number on it. Subsequently, my money was sent to the (old) routing number & account on the form. My money was deposited into their subsidiary, Metabank. These Porte people can’t even contact Metabank to correct the problem and get my funds transferred to their new routing number. This is a nightmare.

It is May 8th, 2021 and they haven’t even updated the app to keep it from producing the direct deposit enrollment form with their old routing number they stop using April 17th, 2021. This is negligence.

Several problems

1, the only good thing from this bank is the virtual cards somewhat.
2, the app is always under maintenance and will constantly log you out for several hours, you won’t even be able to log in at all. They really need to stop doing this. What maintenance are you even doing..? I never see a difference.
3, If you have a subscription with one virtual card, and later on delete that card on Porte, the subscription company still takes your money. Porte should dispose that card completely. It’s ridiculous how much money is coming out of this bank and I don’t even know from which subscription I have ongoing.
4, I have a few transaction on this bank that I never made, so beware of scammers from this bank.
5, the transfer limits are a joke. They need to make it bigger for the people with more money. Not everyone is broke and transfers a little, no offense. I need to transfer a lot! They have so much to fix it’s ridiculous, but then again this is a small bank with a lot more improvement and needs better customer service.
6, customer service will never fully understand you, they’re just simply slow and don’t know what they’re talking about and never know how to help.
