Fee’s and pricing
The app works fine. I don’t appreciate the fact that fee’s are being charged when adding money to my child’s account! It’s already terrible that he eats breakfast at home, then get’s to school and if he wants a chocolate milk or a juice, he’s being charged the $1.50 for a whole breakfast! That’s ridiculous! Kids should be charged for what they eat or drink only because the rest of the food that’s uneaten goes in the trash by the teachers, that’s wasteful! Not only that, they’re some children that comes to school hungry and can’t afford breakfast nor lunch for that matter and they’re throwing away freaking food! Everything is highway robbery and shouldn’t be! I’m pretty sure a small milk and an even smaller size juice, shouldn’t be $1.50. He’s only in 1st grade!!!!!!
Overly Complicated Simplicity
Initially, I had no problems using the app. However, as time passed and I started using it more frequently, it became too much trouble for its worth. Too much time wasted trying to figure out things that are clearly oversights on behalf of the developer of this app. Keep it simple folks. Don’t move the things that work well around when you make updates. It just does make sense. Also, why would any payment page include “add method of payment” and display the symbols for Visa, MasterCard, American Express, etc. yet not accept the American Ecpress credit card? I have spent 2 days trying to add money with my American Express card and keep arriving at a dead end. Not to mention, no where does it say you don’t accept American Express (a notice would have saved me lots of hassle and time). In fact, the reason I finally found out the problem I was as having was due to the app not accepting American Express is because I learned about it here while reading the reviews. It’s extremely misleading having American Express symbol next to forms of payment. Do yourselves a favor, read through the reviews, and do something about the feedback you’re receiving. The numbers speak for themselves, and the majority of your reviews are not positive. You need to make it a great app before another developer does so in a better app and the schools cancel their contracts with you. It’s just a matter of time, and the opportunity is yours to lose. Good luck!
Needs a few improvements
I would have rather wrote the developer as this is not a complaint but a customer focus review.
.. because there is a fee to pay, payments should be instant especially coming from a credit card
Once paid, it should apparent.. currently, after I’d paid, I was not sure if the payment went through.. I search several screens before I found a spot in very small writing that the payment was pending.
There should be an invoice that could be printed for records to keep track of payments and spending. The invoice should go back as far as customer has been using the MySchoolBucks service... this helps parents budget or talk to there student about there spending habits by comparing past dates.
And lastly, should be able to allow parents to pay for the entire year instead of piecing payments out. I originally wanted to send $600... some users would probably want to pay it up to get rid of the thought of lunch...if you have a concern of fees, charge the larger accordingly...(maybe a percentage).
