Ratings and Reviews
I really like the changes to the solo funds app. I have been funding loans for a while now and I definitely have a bit in deferment but the average returns are great. The GUI is nice, I love the lending tracker, overall really nice to use. One change I hope they revert is the email you get upon a paid back loan. Previously they showed how much you funded broken down into initial amount, plus solo donation, and then the tip amount. They still have a thorough breakdown of each component when funding but upon repayment they removed it. This is making it slightly more difficult to know the returns unless you refer back to the original email or go into history. Please revert that feature, it worked perfectly. Lastly, I opened a ticket because I was supposed to get paid back a certain amount, however even though the loan was not late and it was the only loan due that day, I showed all evidence and still haven’t gotten my money back. It’s not a lot but literally is the amount of return I got on that investment. Errors can happen, but when dealing with peoples money that is an extreme red flag. Still really like the app overall

Has Potential But Needs Work (Lender)
From an investors standpoint, this app has great potential, but does little to protect lenders from losing money. I’ve lent over $16,000 to more than 60 individuals and found that most people on this platform pay their loans back late, with many not paying back at all. I found that most of the loans I funded rolled over, giving the borrower an extra 14 days to pay back their debts. I don’t think borrowers should be given an extra 14 days to pay off their debts, especially with all loan terms being 30 days or less. 7 extra days to pay back is enough in my opinion. If someone doesn’t pay back on time they should be over drafted like some auto payments do. If not overdraft, then they’re account should be charged daily until the funds are repaid. The collections process doesn’t seem to be effective at all. If your loan goes into collections, just consider it gone. I don’t imagine anyone paying back a less than $300 debt in collections, especially when borrowing from this app has no effect on their credit score. The solo scoring system is off. I noticed many people have high scores that have never borrowed money on this platform. Contacting support is also a pain. You can only communicate with them via email and they often take a week or more to respond.
If they provided lenders with more payback protection, adjusted the collections process, fixed the scoring system, and added live phone call support, this app would be great.

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
We would like to clarify that our collections process is more than an email or two to borrowers. SoLo has an internal process to prevent accounts from going to collections. However, if we are unable to collect loan payments, we pass those accounts onto our collections agency for further action. Those accounts are also blocked from using SoLo and reported to the credit bureaus.
When lending, there is always risk involved. We want to ensure our Lenders are aware of that and we have provided some tips on best practices: Checking the SoLo Score and Previous Transactions.
As a Lender, you have access to view a Borrower’s transaction history and whether they have paid their previous loans on time. This can help you assess how creditworthy a Borrower has been. Be sure to familiarize yourself with the terms of your loan before lending and borrowing. SoLo does not insure loans at this time, so make sure you are comfortable with the risks you take and read your Loan Agreement carefully.
Please email our support team for any further questions you may have at email@example.com.
No gimmicks, No Credit Approval, The Real Deal!!!
I have downloaded and checked out a number of lending apps online and in the app store and I will say thay Solo is HANDS DOWN the best and easiest way I have ever recieved funding! The tips and fees are realistic and dont make borrowing hurt your financial situation costing more then you can afford.
Don’t be discouraged if your first, second, third or maybe even fourth request for a loan are not funded in the 3 days they stay on the marketplace, someone will come thru for you and the request process literally takes all of 3 minutes. Once my loan was funded and I accepted the terms the money was in my bank account and available to me in seconds!!
I highly recommend this app for temporary financial relief as long as you are true to your promise to pay back in the allotted time frame as these lenders are people just like the borrowers paying out of their personal pocket to help those in need and should be appreciated for their kindness and caring to help others. I am excited to watch my credit build with Solo and can’t wait to be in a position to help others the way my lender helped me!! Thanks a million to Jake for lending me the funds I requested and the team at Solo that put out one of the best lending apps I have found!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ♥️
