Setup was seamless for me.

I did my first transaction with in under 2 minutes of downloading the app. And it just worked.


Although it take forever for mPower to be replaced, I think it was worth the wait. I’m happy, for NOW. It is not uncommon to get excited about a product, only for the company to turn it into a piece of ….

Until that happens, IF it’ll ever happen, I’m totally down with!
