Great for the beginning stock investor
This app is perfect for someone starting out to invest in the stock market that doesn’t have a lot of money to spend. You can think of Stockpile as a savings account where you can invest literally pocket change, with the potential for better returns on investments (and also for greater losses) with the sole purpose of this app is to help build Equity within a stock share without necessarily having the entire stock price money. It’s a great opportunity for wealth building or for savings for a future purchase. Stockpile is bear bones in terms of trading tools (no limits, stop limits, good til cancel and the like) as every stock you purchase is bought at the closing of the stock market day. So if you decide you want to purchase a stock at $45 at that moment you’ll have to wait until the close of the market before your transaction is completed and at that point the stock price could be higher or lower than the $45 stock price you might have wanted. So if you’re looking for trading tools stockpile may not be for you, but if you’re looking for a unusual way to purchase stocks with a low commission with a savings account type ease then stockpile is the hands down winner!
App needs revamping and Customer service is below average
I was interested in this to earn some extra money and not take too much risk as nowadays you have to be careful. I got a fraction of share of stock from Groupon a few days ago and finally downloaded the Stockpile app and put in my Social Security Number as they requested due to regulations. Then I linked my checking account to my account. Then yesterday I tried to access my account but couldn’t gain access so I called (put on hold too long) and then emailed Customer Support. I received an email telling me I was locked out due to Equifax breach so to unlock I had to send a copy of my driver’s license to verify my identity. The email said it would take 2-3 days to unlock my account. In the meantime I received another email from Stockpile saying that my weekly automatic deposit of $950 would be transferred to my account in 2-3 days and I became alarmed as I had not set up any auto deposit from my checking into my Stockpile account. I could not access my account as it is still locked so I tried contacting customer service by phone and waited on hold for over 30 minutes so I emailed them to tell them they are mistaken and I did NOT authorize an automatic withdrawal out of my checking account. I called my bank and they said they cannot take action until Stockpile attempts to take out funds from my checking it is all so disconcerting
Functional but confusing interface
The app is great for how easy it is to buy and sell stock. But, I want more options for viewing my total stock growth and returns. As it is right now, the only way to view my total ROI is through the graph presented at the top of the home page. I'd like to be able to zoom in on different portions of that graph and have it be more interactive. I'd like to see a version that normalizes out my investments so that I'm only seeing the growth or decline of my stock instead of artificial stepwise increases in the value simply due to the fact that I put money into a stock that day. It also isn't totally clear to me what the numbers in the red/green circle are. Is it total and percent return over the time period I selected on the graph? Or just overall total and percent rerun? Because when you look at an individual stock it's unclear what those numbers in the circle are because they're different than the total return reported in the detailed explanation below the chart. Also navigating to different portions of the app is a little clunky.
