What a pathetic customer service. Upon visiting the link in reply, it's useless. No contact from customer support in 3 days. Given up on your Google service. Wish could give 0 star. App is good, but customer service sucks. Waited for 20 minutes for a customer rep to turn on phone with no luck. Also did not get couple of referral bonuses dispite sending multiple feedbacks for the same.

Useless app. Worst customer services, you can use this app if you want your money to be stucked in the middle. They give your money to other banks and make profit. When you call them they will just reply please wait for few more days as your money is still inside their bank and they are getting interest from banks. DO NOT INSTALL.

I have transferred 500 rs to my friend account but it has not yet received and amount has been debited from my account and it's is showing waiting for bank...I have filed issue to npci then also no response has come. Chat option in customer support is also missing and after calling and waiting for 30 min no response so irritating app..... Please solve my problem or give me any customer support officer no.

I have an issue; the cash back and rewards amount is not credited to my account. I had tried to call customer care many times none of them responded. Other than this the app is very good, simple and fast, instantly credits to beneficiary. Hope our account data will be secured.

Very bad experience. I transfer Rs.6000 to my friend tez account. The money was take my bank account but not credited to my friend account. I asked to bank side they are told the tez app only responsible for the transaction. I asked tez they are told within 3 days your money was credited to you or your friend bank account. But I didn't get. So I call again to the tez they are told wait more 7 days. One of the worst app.

Hey there is a bug I believe. Last time my friend tried to send me money via tez. She had done the payment but it was showing "waiting for bank" . But the next to next day we can see amount has been deposited but no status has been updated in the Tez console. Kindly fix it up. Thanks, Pronob

Bad experience Never got the cash back paid. I've got the cash back but not added to the account is still processing from 2 weeks. Why do you give all such offers to attract people and then make out of it and don't provide it correctly. When you give the scratch cards but never got a nice amount always it says BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME its been up to 13-15 better luck next times when will the next get done.
Sharad 1
I sent money to my friend which is deducted from my account but status was showing pending. The money get credited to my friends account but it is immediately debited from his account. So I should have to get refund of my money into my accout but I still not get it and status showing as transaction successful. I have reported issue since 7th Nov and still it is not resolved. Also there no customer care number or email id to contact. Very bad experiance with this application. Waiting for my money

It used to be good for a time. Now its just cheap tricks. Even if you do a 10k transaction u will get BLNT. Even in lucky draw its always BLNT till now for me. So there is no point in scratch cards so remove that n don't make fools out of ppl.
