  1. Andy Ly-avatar

    I must've tried to end my banking password like 10 times and answered my question like 3 times and it still can't connect my bank account. This has been so frustrating. To developers or UX designers. To solve this, you need to have a "success state" to show my password work or something. After answering the security question or password, I just get back to the regular screen as if I have to start over.

  2. Nick Sault-avatar

    I have been using this platform for several months now as I already have Wealthsimple accounts and was interested in dabbling in trading. Although I'm a newbie I can see where this app has a long way to go in terms of features and functionality. It has a lot of glitches that can be very frustrating. If they added features such as allowing transfers between wealthsimple accounts and adding more IPO's from the TSX Venture that would be a good start. Until then it's a generous 3 star rating

  3. mr everdread-avatar

    After spending a little more time with the app it appears some of the bugs have been fixed. There are still a few things holding it back from being a great app. The lack of DTC securities and lack of premarket and aftermarket access will really cause you some problems if you're looking to trade a little more actively. If they had those three things I think it would be a lot more useful of a service in todays market. Instead it's the same ol' watered down Canadian version of something else.

  4. Jordan Coseni-avatar

    Works ok. Love the fact that there are no fees on trades and the 1.5% conversion fee is alright. Graphs need a major upgrade. I understand it's a mostly free broker, but I'd be willing to pay a small amount per trade for better in app features like Questrade has. The 15 minute delay is really annoying, but a simple google search or stock quote app is a good workaround. 3 stars for now, excited to see how the relatively new app develops over the next little while.

  5. Amirashkan-avatar

    The dark mode is amazing! I love it. 1-Please add US accounts to be able to trade US stocks for free. 2-Please add the function of "take profit" and "stop loss" within only one order. So, during purchasing a share, we are able to define the goal. Like, how much profit satisfies us to quit the trade and how much loss we can accept. This is easy and professional. I look forward to it. Please make it... 💜

  6. Lillicious-avatar

    My number doesn't make any sense. I'm not sure what's going on but my total amount and available / pending money in the app and actual number doesn't match. I reinstalled the app but still the same. I hope it's a glitchy and will be fixed asap. Sometimes deposit can take more than 3 days, very limited stocks available. Still effy with the app so far.

  7. Devante Jordan-avatar

    It's better from when it first rolled out. To be able to be on par with the American Robinhood App, a few things are still needed. Such as; real-time trades and quotes, ability to buy fractional shares and to make an instant deposits with no holds. Automatic deposits, deposit via credit card. To be able to move fund between wealthsimple savings accounts. Clean up the UI with separate buttons for the watchlist and portfolio. Price Alerts or Technical Alerts

  8. ahmed wagdy-avatar

    nice design and very easy to use for a beginner like myself. but still needs a lot of improvements. more data on every stock or ETF needs to be added. this 3 days hold on deposits is extremely annoying and doesn't make any sense to me. and why is the data delayed by 15 minutes (seriously asking as i don't know) .. overall definitely recommend

  9. Brett Hood-avatar

    I have been using the app for almost 8 months now, and I must say it really is fantastic for what it is. It is the only feasible way to invest a bit each week without being eaten by fees. Keep in mind this is not a day trading app. It seems like 90% of the negative reviews of this app are people upset about day trades not working, or placing a market order and wondering why it doesn't go through or goes through at a higher price. The app is bare bones... do your research else where, get a real time quote of the stock price, and enter a limit buy/sell, never use market buy/sells if you are worried about a price spread. The 3 day wait time is probably the biggest downfall of the app, but again, if you invest in solid blue chip companies, the likelihood of them significantly moving in 3 days is pretty low. Overall it is a great app, which has helping my saving strategy significantly.

  10. James Luo-avatar

    Update: Dark mode fixed the problem. The newest update make looking at changes in shares much worse. Before, you could easily tell if what you had had increased or decreased by font and colour, blue for up grey for down. Now it looks much more the same, making it harder to read. Please change the font back.

  11. Mark Grimson-avatar

    Just a noob looking to have a little fun with penny stocks. This app is awesome for this. Easy to use not full of ads and has a clear lay out. I'm a little surprised that there isn't a desk top version but I'm on the go all the time I don't care too much about that. All in all I would recommend this app to anyone looking to play around with stocks.

  12. A Google user-avatar

    I like this app, but if you are using it for trading it will frustrate you more then paying the fees on another app. The lists are very limited and if you are lookinh for any stock that isn't main stream even on the index's they say they support I have had 50/50 chance that they will sell it. And waiting 5 business days for your deposit is ridiculous, and then there is now way to transfer money from one account to another within the app. Very frustrating.

  13. Alexander Lee-avatar

    I like the whole interface and easy trading process. But there are two down falls, 1) You can't have a USD account to trade US stocks directly. It's pretty much forcing people to pay the 1.5% conversion each time... 2) You don't have a feature to enable auto reinvest dividend. I swear if you make the above two possible you would blow the rest of your competition out of the water.

  14. Arijeet Mukherjee-avatar

    Arijeet Mukherjee


    Great for investing with low fees! However they need to improve the following 1. Deposit times of 3 days is ridiculous. 2. Using 'plaid' to get banking credentials is insane and should be illegal but somehow isn't in north America. Your credentials are asked for in the app NOT by the bank but by wealthsimple. You are asked to provide username and password on a screen NOT controlled by your bank. You basically have to trust wealthsimple/plaid to do the right thing with this info.

  15. Thomas Bouvier-avatar

    The UI is good but that's about it. Don't think about trading USD because you will need to have huge profit margins on your trades to avoid taking losses. Example from this morning: bought in at 19.58 USD at 300 shares, and sold later in the week at 19.90 USD. By the time I processed the transaction I had lost $150 CAD. Currently in the process to move my money somewhere else like Questrade that is transparent about what they charge you and don't claim "commission free trading".

  16. Alfonso Najera-avatar

    So far, for me, this app has been nothing but great. While it does not have all stocks, or any bonds, which I find disappointing, but completely understandable, it has been a great experience. This app has made it easy to me to get started on trading, and has given me the opportunity to gain some good income

  17. Udam Singh-avatar

    Somehow i started liking this app but still has a long way to go. But keeping free trades in mind its best place to start without having fear of lossing your money just into commissions. Best app if your looking for for swing trading and long term investment. It will be great if you guys add option to modify orders.

  18. Abhishek Dhiman-avatar

    Abhishek Dhiman


    The only good thing about this app is commission free trading (only Canadian stocks recommended, exchange rate loss is way to high for USD stocks). Rest of the experience is really frustrating - slow order cancelling, delayed quotes, delayed fund transfers, most of the app displays wrong numbers.

  19. Tyler Pelletier-avatar

    Tyler Pelletier


    Works but I wish it had buy at a certain price automatically and dump at a certain price automatically to prevent losses or capture gains it might also be nice to have it buy and sell 2 shares of the same stock within a week or month and capture the spread automatically. I work nights so I'm often asleep during the day. It would be nice if we could buy fractions of a stock and auto invest dividends.

  20. John Hay-avatar

    Great! Awesome and really easy to use! No worries about stupendous fees, never has so much of my hard earned money gone into the investment vehicles I myself chose! I am so thankful wealthsimple exists because nothing is as state of the art in the Canadian investment world for the lil guy! 5 stars!!

  21. Taylor Coulthard-avatar

    Taylor Coulthard


    This app is no good if you want to trade and make money. It lags 15 minutes behind the market. It won't let you buy a stock that has risen more than 5% because of its lag. Then when you try and sell a stock it sells out at the current price not the price that the app displays. It took me a while to figure out when I was selling my stocks that I wasn't getting the value displayed on the screen. Bottom line I lost a bunch of money because of this.

  22. Konstantin Khlobystov-avatar

    Konstantin Khlobystov


    Personally, I find navigation & UX could use an improvement. This app is only good for order taking. Forget about doing any research or even tracking your performance with this app. I would not recommend trading US markets - there's no US$ account avail. All transactions are converted back to CAD$ at time of sale. U can get burned on xchange rate + 1.5%-2% fee 4 converting $. During splits/rev.split expect 3-5 bus. days to be locked in trade - this is horrendous! Also, use "Limit Order" only!

  23. F C-avatar

    This is great. But needs improvement. - more stocks to be displayed - option trading - less delay in price - charts It's great because it works but if they release webull or Robinhood in Canada, I'm switching in a heartbeat. Good app to use overall.

  24. Asher Faisal-avatar

    Game changer! Although there are a few hiccups once in a while but that's part of it and personally don't mind. My suggestion: a dividend tracker, pie chart to show different holdings in sectors, partial purchasing. FYI if you are looking for day trading because its 0 commission don't look here.

  25. Samuel Barkson-avatar

    Good app overall. However this new update ruined my experience. The new colors/font are disgusting. It used to be easy to see if you made any profit, now it all looks the same.

  26. Christopher Tupper-avatar

    Christopher Tupper


    It's a good app so far no bugs, but it needs some polishing. For example of like to know how much cash I've invested in an account. As currently there is no easy way to track dividend payments.

  27. Ionut Anghelache-avatar

    Ionut Anghelache


    If you want to lose money download the app. The display is behind with wayy than 15 min. It's behind with 47 minutes. Tried to do some penny stocks. The screen show 14 cent when I brought it it 15. Fantastic. When u sell it it said 16cent but sell it for 14.

  28. Ray Man-Kit Yuen-avatar

    Ray Man-Kit Yuen


    Love the low fees but with not a lot of options except to just only trade. No stops or short orders or all of the other jazz that other companies has. So if you're only going to just buy and sell and you watch the market yourself then this is a pretty good app aside from the 15 min gap between updates.

  29. G Breezie-avatar

    Great app but the only downside is that I can't use it in landscape mode on my samsung galaxy tab s6. It gets frustrating when I can only use it in potroit mode on a 10.5" screen

  30. J T-avatar

    Really simple and straight forward way of getting into day trading and stocks. No fees for the first year or two I think... Pretty awesome app if you ask me!

  31. Guillermo Lara-avatar

    Great app. Has some lag when switching between accounts. They really need to get live stock info. Overall great app especially since you can invest any amount for free

  32. Roberto Cuadros-avatar

    Roberto Cuadros


    Very easy to use. I performed my first limit order and the interface is very user friendly. I will explore more options in this app in the following days.

  33. This Is Sparta-avatar

    Easy to use. My complaint: I'm being charged a 3.5% exchange rate fee when the app advertises 2%. This fee is taken on buy & sell for the NYSE .. that's 7% exchange rate fees!

  34. Nate B-avatar

    I've been using this app for several months now and really enjoy the simplicity of the app. User friendly for the average Joe and I look forward to more products from this company.

  35. Loic Mercier-avatar

    Very simple to use! Great for a beginner investor. I wish app presented more info such as dividends and different types of graphs.

  36. Andrew Atkinson-avatar

    Andrew Atkinson


    This thing is clunky as heck if you are used to crypto exchanges. They kinda went overboard making it newbie friendly to the point its really messy if you use more advanced strategies then all in market buy now

  37. Trey Grabowski-avatar

    It's only trying to make me say I live in Canada even if I obviously put I'm from the United states Example- add address (puts address) the only option that come up are Canadian, and the when I type everything myself it was to put a province

  38. Mike Kurdi-avatar

    Easy to use, very quick set up. It has most of the really big stocks and shares. It uses multiple stock exchanges. Only downside is there is not a lot of "penny" stocks.

  39. Boxmotion Gaming-avatar

    Boxmotion Gaming


    The app is fine but i would recommend not to show portfolio as a stock chart it really confuses. Moreover, 15 minutes delay needs to be gone and they should add more markets.

  40. Rosetti-avatar

    Only reason didn't give it 5 stars, is because it takes too long to transfer money into the trading account (like 3 days or something like that).

  41. Diego Alonso Duarte Gómez-avatar

    Diego Alonso Duarte Gómez


    The user interface is slick, simple and easy to use plus no commission on trades makes this app one of the best options in brokers out there.

  42. mephobic-avatar

    Wonderfully simple! Easy to use and simple too understand, all you need is money to invest! Lol

  43. Lorraine Robinson-avatar

    Lorraine Robinson


    Good for self directed trading, easy to use however some companies not listed at times, and slow to deposit funds from other banks.

  44. Amish Jain-avatar

    Unable to register the continue key at the end of the residential address isn't letting me go forward. Fix it please.

  45. Shiva G-avatar

    Application is ok, I'm not sure of terms and free yet! But feel like Blindly trusting this company to give user name and password to bank and social security number? Why not authenticate using my banking app?

  46. DJ Maxx-avatar

    Not transparent about their full account opening requirements right from the very start. I ended up not being able to do anything except hand over personal information.

  47. Raviraj Mahida-avatar

    Often freezes while surfing through stocks. Have to force stop and open it again in order to use it.

  48. linda r-avatar

    Free but you'll lose money because of all the glitches. Stocks occasionally disappear from my portfolio. My account values are literally never correct (at least a few hundred off at all times, and I don't have much money in it in the first place). Sometimes they'll give you more than you bought. Sometimes they won't let you cancel limit orders for hours. One time it let me short stocks. Easily have lost hundreds of dollars due to these randomized glitches.

  49. Zain Ahmed-avatar

    The app is good. UX is fine and works well, however, transfering money to TFSA takes at least 3 days. For a trading platform, that's not good. 3 days can change a lot. Also, I hope that in the future, we get more ETFs and Mutual funds. So many ETFs listed on the exchange especially US are missing. Even some individual stocks are missing that are otherwise available through other platforms. Overall, please fix the deposit time. It should be same day deposits.

  50. Vernon Daproza-avatar

    Hi there, The app is great, even though its 15 mins late. Come on people, stop complaining and improvise, go to any website and watch from there. For your new update, you guys might want to do some testing with your app as sometimes its unresponsive, it got a lot slower this time. When placing orders its really slow as well. Please fix this issue. Thanks. Overall, the app is not bad.

  51. Brian LO-avatar

    Plus on the ease of use. However it has problems. One: the profit/loss calculation is wrong. If you deposit a X-amount of funds, the app includes your deposit as part of the profits. Two: DEEPLY delayed market buy-sell orders. Often times your market order isn't fulfilled even 30-50 minutes after submission. Three: rudimentary charting. No candlesticks available, only line charts.

  52. Dom Lausic-avatar

    Great app! Especially for the beginner investor and those who may not require the tons of technical data. Design is clean and layout is very intuitive! Very well designed and a pleasure to use. May not be suited for the sophisticated "day-trader". This was initially a concern for me, but quickly realized Wealthsimple had everything I needed. Love this app!

  53. Mauricio Carranza-avatar

    Mauricio Carranza


    Decent and to the point which has a simplistic quality to it. I've never invested in open market stocks before so this is basically a game to spike dopamine levels. Put in cash I could afford to lose and having fun at it. I've bought some stocks and prices seem to be accurate compared to realtime stock searches. I've heard about some issues selling stocks so I will report if need be. This is quite new still do I'd expect some hiccups. Again don't put all your money into something new.

  54. Kyle H-avatar

    The app is itself is quite decent. It does not crash on me as much as it used to at the start. It is pleasing to the eye visually. It is easy to navigate and use. Looking forward to more functionality and capability to be added to the app from the developers. As the app grows in popularity, I hope to see user requested features to be added including the addition on a website app or desktop software component. Overall, this app has great potential and I enjoy it.

  55. M P-avatar

    It has a lot of bugs and missing stocks that Robinhood has. My $150 didn't go through and when I tried again, it showed that I am down $150 even though I wasn't

  56. Norm Lair-avatar

    Great investing platform. Love that all CDN trading is no fee. This makes it easy for the beginner who likes to trade lots without getting dinged a $10 trading fee every time. Not getting full stars due to support. Support is slow and takes days to get a response (by email only). This has been VERY frustrating as I'm trying to transfer a large sum of money and I am not getting any direction on how to do this.

  57. Jason Tyler Guest-avatar

    Jason Tyler Guest


    Tip: When you click the 'View accounts' drop-down menu to change to something other than Personal, you may discover that one of your balances displays as "Account value: $0.00" - I have reported this glitch to support multiple times. They either aren't able to or don't care to fix this. Just a head's up to new users. I have gotten a little shock from this error in the Welathsimple Trade app more than once!

  58. SK-avatar

    I've waited 5days for my direct deposit! But still I can't trade since they put new uesers on waitlist. It doesn't say how long you have to wait. This is so ridiculous! You will lose your TFSA contribution room if you withdraw the money. So basically at this good market, your money is stuck in. Can't do anything! Doesn't even know when you gonna be able to trade. It's scammy!

  59. Dave Vira-avatar

    To be honest , i like this app cause its easy to use , they have category for every sector in life ( ex:companies working in the energy sector or other stuff like that) the only beef i have with this app is its a bit laggy ,sometimes it takes a bit of time to load the page but am a patient person and i can handle it . Beside that , the app was what i was looking for .

  60. Tyler Retty-avatar

    App is good looking and somewhat easy to use. But I would not trust it. I've made money on it before but I've lost more. With the markets being delayed so much you don't really know what your buying at. I bought into one at 34 tried to sell at 37. It bought it for me at 36 and sold on 35. Even though all other markets say it's still a I've 35! Explain to me how I lost money on a stock that's up 10%. Do not trust it with your money. I'll be pulling everything out and using TDAmeritrade.

  61. Sean Hudson-avatar

    I knew the lag time for fund transfers ahead of time, that's fine. My beef with this app is the design, flow, and experience. It has a long way to go: Pros: - Free trading on a ton of tickers - Simple UI - Well built for long-game trading, TFSA etc Cons: - Don't use this for day trading or anything requiring speed. I'm sure this was their intention as well - I'm constantly accidentally exiting the app because there is no clear top level page, and clicking back on an account view just exits - Stock prices don't show at market open until at least 30 minutes after open, not the 15 the app says - Constantly asking me to invite my friends and share the app; after every trade, in every screen. Ask me once or twice and then take the damn hint

  62. Brad M-avatar

    Good enough for what I do. App prefers to look pretty over working well. I use a completely different app for market info because of this. The UI could be more informative overall. Frustrating that I need to refresh my 'all stocks' view very frequently - sometimes stocks will just not appear here until I refresh. And this view just doesn't perform very well, it feels heavy. Would be nice to have control over which stocks appear in the opening view. Seems to be random right now.

  63. Adam Younis-avatar

    There's a lot to like - but it lacks. I get it, it's only been available for a year or so. And it's pretty good! But lacks many many big name stocks (like Disney). Interface is good. Needs a desktop version. Need a way to link to wealthsimple cash. I want to make this my go to app. But it has a ways to go. I am confident they will get there in time. Hopefully sooner rather than later.

    This app is excellent, easy to understand if your just getting into investing and is Canada's first commission free broker!

    I like the app but if you are hoping to do fast trading you should look else where for an app. It's simple and clean which is nice but you will often be left with a error message when trying to sell at peak times as you see your money falling. Would be a great app if it sold everytime you ask but it often just does not comply with your sale and you end up losing potential gains pretty quickly.

    Full of errors and poor support. This app has cost me a lot of money with its glitches and the support takes days to get back to you. Everything from double charging for transactions to not being able to sell stocks because their trading system is having issues. Very bad app.

  67. Andy Mccarthy-avatar

    Pretty good. Clean and easy to use. As long as you stick to Canadian dollars you're golden.

    I want to like this app, but unfortunately it's just too buggy and unreliable. My numbers have been wrong for weeks and right now I have an order that is stuck cancelling. Hopefully they can work out the bugs in this app so that it's more usable. Edit 2020/04/10 - Changed my review from 2 stars to 1 and pulled my money from the app to use a real brokerage. This app is terrible.

    The no fee part is good. But it's super slow, glitches often, sometimes give wildly wrong accoubt totals. Too slow in processing your orders. When the market crashed during covid, this app literally froze and so i just watched my money disappear cause i couldnt sell. Good for s aller accounts but if you dealing with large balances than other apps are better with the fee. Also, i cant access my account on a website, only the app.

    Great layout and easy to use. I am mostly interested in trading markets out of the US, and 1.5% exchange fee both when buying and selling american stocms is too high. I'll return when they have an American currency account where I am not gouged on every trade. 10$ per trade is cheaper elsewhere.

    I don't know much about trading but it makes things simple. They give you customized packages to fit your goals

    I'd like to see same day deposits, ability to short stocks and a desktop app. Would be awesome if the aforementioned features are developed.

  74. H M-avatar

    Overall layout and deposit times could be a bit better but definitely recommend for someone who is new to trading

  75. Patryk Kubik-avatar

    Great trading app it will definitely bring you a return but the biggest problem is the 15 min delay and the fact that it doesnt support certain exchanges. It would be nice if you could trade into stocks outside the north american market and into crypto currencies. I feel like this is taking away from future investments into companies that arent traded on the supported exchange and other market platforms.

    Cons - Graph Y Axis legend missing causing it to be difficult to tell price history. SOLUTION: provide Y axis scale. - When searching for pricing history the info is lost as soon as you lift finger. SOLUTION: maintain selection info after finger is released. - Unable to search stocks by dividend yield. Update 03/19/2020 I'm growing increasingly disappointed with the app. It's definitely not a one-stop shop for all your novice investing ambitions. - missing an "all time" pricing history

  77. Santo Dominic-avatar

    Worst experience ever! Please do not use this app!! First of all, It took 3 days for the money to get credited into the TFSA Account. Then when you finally decide to buy some stocks, it puts you in a waitlist, due to high volumes of trading! ( Are you kidding me??) The worst part is yet to come, when you decide to transfer the money back to your bank account, because you can't buy any stocks, it says the TFSA account doesn't have the money to be transferred? So technically your money is gone!!

    The app itself seems alright. The big issue is setting up an account. I already am a wealthsimple customer but I need to setup another account. Ok small hurdle right, wrong. When using the online funding, you can only upload a picture and it asks for a picture of a void check. I print out a statement and a void check and take a picture. 1-2 days later a Michael responds saying you have to upload a pdf not a picture. Send the same documents but in the pdf format that was sent. Very frustrating...

  79. Questionable Content-avatar

    Questionable Content


    It takes anywhere to 3-5 days for any deposits to get in your account which is extremely useless when it comes to trading. As of this moment there is a waitlist for trading and customer service is practically useless they just keep throwing out blanket statements and dont provide any actual information as to what is going on and how they are handling it. There are a plethora of glitches when you are finally able to trade. The app clearly needs a lot of work and foresight for these situations.

  80. WombatsinCombat-avatar



    Takes a few days to deposit money but they let you know that. Same with 15 min delay price. I like the design and most of the time I trades go through just fine. If it doesn't go through immediately you should check Real Time pricing on the internet. I know some people had trouble getting started, however they waited until now to begin. I made my account two months ago and tested the deposit function. I had no troubles the past 2 weeks buying stocks.

  81. SkateSimple-avatar

    I had thought this was a good app before, but I am now noticing all its flaws. There are no stops, holds, put options, and worstly you can not day trade. I have put in multiple orders for stocks at say $1 a stock, than the stock goes up to $1.05 well now since it went up 5 cents, it cancels my order so now theoretically my money is lost because they are not quick enough to give me my stocks.

  82. Brendan Smith-avatar

    Its alright until a decent volume of people start trading. Then orders crash and you're left unable to trade during peak times for long enough that you feel compelled to start going around every inch of the app, and looking at the Twitter and seeing other people with the same problem. Then logging back in for the uncounted time to be asked to rate the app i just reinstalled.

  83. Gn Adri-avatar

    Incredibly inconsistent. Their server issues, bugs issues with order statuses will rob you of your money if you day trade. Orders can take up to 2 hours to CANCEL let alone fill. And the notification system is completely broken. works 60% of the time.

  84. Todd Stewart-avatar

    Just DL this app signed up and I get stuck at adding my bank to transfer funds. The search bar function doesnt work. If I banked with the 12 most common can select them but search function doest work. Even if you try to search the banks shown as the common. Nothing shows up in search, I've uninstalled twice and set up an account on Wealthsimple Cash and invest without a problem. I bank with Coast Capital Savings

  85. PHDALI2-avatar

    This is the only app that has got me into investing.. I think it's a great app! However it is 2020 and I think when we buy stocks or sell them they should be sold at the price we are locking in at the market. Being that theres a 15 min delay you could lose alot depending on how many shares you have.

  86. kane khongsay-avatar

    Its only good for small & beginner investor. They have a 15min delay so watch out when ready to buy or sell try to find live stock price before buy or sell so you dont loose on your profit. Money take 3 days to transfer. But overall i find it ok for small investor seen the minimum money need it to trade is low as 1$ 😁

    If the app doesn't work properly when u need it to work the most so you can sell or buy then it is useless... Very inconsistent and will not work at times of high demand ... You can use it to buy stocks for free and invest long term but not to trade short term because it is highly unreliable.

  88. Kevin Boak-avatar

    I would strongly recommend against using this app. Any other trading platform: I deposit money, I buy stocks. This trading platform: I deposit money.... they take the money... that money does not arrive in my account for like 5 days. Once it finally shows up, you are on a 'waitlist' to actually use it, for an undetermined amount of time. Pretty shady business model if you ask me... I thought I'd give this wealthsimple thing a shot, but I think I'll stick with a more reputable platform.

  89. Shalom Shore-avatar

    The best designed, worst functioning app I have ever seen. It beautifully did everything, especially take my money. And then I couldn't figure out how to trade. Nothing. No option to trade, no "your account is pending". Just a blank screen. So I pulled my money out, lost $50 and called it a day.

    Great for small-scale trading in Canada & for beginners, despite all the GUI issues. My biggest gripe is order cancellation notifications. Specifically, how you can't turn them off without also turning off order completion notifications. That, combined with the interface issues makes this more like 3.5 stars.

  91. Jory Simard-avatar

    Stay away from this app, I have watched stocks double in the amount of time it took for my money to be deposited. Once a full 5 days passed, I had the money in my account. This seemed great and my frustration settled. As soon as I went to buy a stock (finally), I was put on a "waiting list." I have now watched a stock triple as I sit here wasting time. Now I have tries to withdraw my money and that is a whole other story. My money is held captive.

  92. Fabiano PS-avatar

    The only way to trade is in the app, and there is no clear way to open a support ticket there. Have an deposit pending for 2 weeks now. Also i put 2 orders on "market buy", which should fill immediately, but only 1 did, another one is pending for hours.. again, no support to be found why???

  93. Ravi M-avatar

    It's a hit and miss. It crashes frequently. Imagine if you have a trade pending and it wont load. So annoying. But it doesnt charges fees for every trade so that's a plus

  94. Lyudmyla S-avatar

    The only good thing is the commission free canadian trading. Why is it called a "trading app" if it flags trading as " suspicious activity" ! You should CLEARLY STATE THE AMOUNT OF TRADES ALLOWED PER WEEK so that its at least used for swing trading or growing an account. People interested in free commissions are mostly people who want to grow the account and TRADE. If trading ( daily or weekly) is discouraged you shouldve called it investment app.

  95. James Wu-avatar

    Like everything out scheduled maintenance is always required but I think doing it during down like at night should be better and not during the day. It has potential but so far other people's review are consistent. There's to much glitches for such an app.

  96. Nav X-avatar

    NOT FOR DAY TRADING. VERY UNRESPONSIVE APP!!! the limit buy/sell appears not to register live prices so you'll either lose out on the opportunity all together or you won't buy/sell at the price you submitted. As I speak, I've put in a limit buy and I've seen the market hit that price 3 times and the app has still not made the purchase. So i cancelled the limit buy, but the app has not processed the cancellation after 15 minutes. MY MONEY IS HOSTAGE.!

    Depositing money to this app makes 3 days to activate, but overall awesome.

    Very user friendly. I wish you could search hy share prices and not just companies and other filters.

  99. modar salem-avatar

    The display errors are very common, which leaves me confused to how much my account is actually worth, how much money I have available to trade, and how many units of a certain stock do I own. It does get fixed the next day but while trading it does leave me with a huge uncertainty

    systems are often flooded and delayed, its "OK" as a free platform but you can get level 2 access with TDs help tool for free.. might be swapping over soon. Seems like they are always having IT problems.
