Ratings and Reviews
Good once you get going
Once you get pass the headache of signing up everything else works pretty good. These opinions are coming from the view of someone who only invests money and not take loans.
The good: I have funded about $1100 since October 1st and have already earned money back. The app has never crashed on me and it is simple to use. Loans can be very short (max 30 days) so you can get your money back + tips fast! Possibility to earn 10% on every loan. When you get paid back, it is deposited to your bank account asap. Loans amounts aren't large
The bad: I had headaches trying to get my SSN input to work. It continuously told me it was not accepted. I emailed them for help because i exceeded my ssn submitting attempts. They weren't much help. 2 days of trying and it worked magically. Their help team isnt very good either. To start, they reply to your question from an email that you can not reply to. So if you have a follow up question, you have to start an entirely new email. I seem to have email them too many times because they have completely stopped responding to any emails i have sent.
Suggestions: being able to sort by # of previous transactions. Using an email that users can respond to for follow up questions.
The good outweigh the bad in my opinion. Just have to get through the headaches first. Then its all sunshine and rainbows. These opinions are just from my experience. Not everyone will have the same problems i have had.
Too long to payback
I came across this app through Penny Hoarder. For my first time I was a little skeptical. It definitely does not like multiple bank account. I have a savings and checking acct. when I went to set up, I kept getting an error stating multiple accounts are not allowed at this time. I reached out and their customer service was able to fix it. For my first, only and last loan, I requested $100. This was early August. I had set up to pay it back with 5 days and a $20 interest tip.
The day I went to pay it back, I got another error message, saying my bank account info was invalid. I also tried to reach out to their customer service and kept getting errors through the app. I was able to finally email their customer service, again. 3 days later (past my payback date) I get a response email saying that everything looks good on their end. 2 days after that they deduct the money from my bank account and it posted that night. It has now been 5 days since they took money out of my account and my loan still shows “pending payback”. I wish I could jus reach out to the peer lender and give him his $120 back. I don’t want him to think I ripped him off. I have reached out to their customer service to see how long it typically takes but I’m yet to hear back from them.
Their FAQ link through the app gives you a 404 error too.
Once my loan has cleared, I’ll be deleting this app.
My review of Solo
I was looking for an app that would loan someone in need with a job that can barrow a couple of bucks here and there and pay it back when payday comes. I tried them all, but every app wanted to be my coach on how to save money. The apps wanted a fee every month, but wouldn’t loan me any money, cause of this or that, but kept taking there $5 a month and I was pretty upset about that. I Googled apps that would loan money and came across a review about Solo Funding, so I said what the heck. I downloaded Solo and registered like it ask me to and requested a loan. I will say if you need money for the future start early with your request, cause Solo takes time to work. Solo is people like you and me loaning money to each other and making a couple of bucks to help. I thought it was crazy, cause for a week I tried and tried and no loan. Finally someone loan me what I asked for and I thought it was the coolest thing and that person came through for me (thank you by the way to whom loan me the money) but that’s just it, I don’t even know who loan me the money, but a BIG THANK YOU to that person. All I can say is try Solo it might work for you, but don’t get frustrated someone will help you just start early with your request before your deadline. Thank you Solo Funding for helping me. 👍🏼
