It is important to note that the Mobile Application is only accessible to users who are using handheld devices that run on iOS software after the company removed its Android App from Google’s Play Store due to performance issues. While responding to a query that was raised by a Twitter user, the management of Spend claims that;
“We have removed our Spend Application from Google’s Play Store platform temporarily to make the necessary updates and adjustments that will enable us to attain high performance. Kindly stay tuned to our page for news on when we will release it again on Play Store! Thank you for your tolerance!”
At the moment, Spend Visa Debit Card is only available to the people who reside in the US, but the company claims they are working hard to see it available across the world. For US residents who wish to get the card can make an application that will see them gain access to the service in 5-7 working days.
It is also worth noting that Spend Debit Card is in an active partnership with Visa Card that ensures Spend is available and accessible in every location where the Visa logo exists. And it exists almost everywhere as we all know.
