Answers to your basic Sociale questions
Sociale is a wallet application for mobile devices - we call it the Sociale True Wallet. We help users who earn money get paid using fast, local and affordable payment services - all through a simple interface and with helpful service. The magic of Sociale is that we are not a financial services provider. We don't hold funds for our users, we don't offer an e-wallet and we don't charge high fees. We connect businesses who need to pay people with payment service providers who can send money - we are the technology that makes it fast, seemless and easy. Sociale provides the KYC, onboarding, wallet and mobile experience that many of these providers lack. Everything happens in one place. No need to have multiple apps for every place a user earns money or every service where they want to receive money. It all happens in the Sociale True Wallet.
Sociale is committed to making sure you receive your money without being dinged with monthly fees, transaction fees, exchange fees and service fees. We believe in transparent payments and report to you about any fees that your payouts encounter on the way to your account. Sociale chooses Payment Methods who offer fair pricing to their users, we avoid any partners with complex fee structures and confusing terms that end up with you receiving less money than you expect. Sociale charges a simple fee per transaction - and you will see it posted with each transaction for you to understand. We don't charge percentages because the service we provide is the same whether you are sending $100 or $1000. Each Payment Method we offer has its own fee structure based on the real costs associated with getting your funds to you - we also make those easy to read and understand in your transaction history. Please see our Fees table for more information.
We are here to help you. The Sociale team is available for live support 24/7 through our app in the Help section under Chat. You can reach out to us any time for assistance. Our live chat is also available through our website in the Chat bubble in the bottom-right corner. You can reach out to us and chat with a live agent. If an agent is unavailable, we'll get back to you quickly through the chat or through your email. You can also reach out to us any time at firstname.lastname@example.org.
