Wondering if this not so new app can really make you money or if it's just another join me here scam that doesn't work?
Well, I have put together this Mezu review for those of you who are just a tad bit skeptical about things and don't trust the person who introduced it to you completely.
I can't blame you as I am the same way but unlike you, I usually do or join something and then ask questions later, especially when it's free to join.
So whether or not you created your Mezu account and you're still wondering if it works, you might want to sit through this short but very informative review.
Unlike others that like to take all your time, I want to get straight to the point as I'm sure you could be doing something like building your own online business or something.
Without further ado, let's get right into things.
So What in the World is Mezu?
Mezu is an application that allows you to give, pay and receive money from friends or even complete strangers without giving any information like other apps require.
Based out of Cleveland and Created by Yuval Brisker, the company was launched in 2013 and has slowly made its way onto the smartphones of thousands of users.
So yes, there is an actual face behind the product, which is always a great thing when it comes to any sites that deal with money.
Off to a great start but let's see what this app really has to offer as most companies start off strong thanks to the hype and then die down within a couple of years before eventually disappearing.
Where this app will end up is and will always be a mystery.
How Mezu Works
Unlike Dosh that requires you to put in some credit card information before you can start even using the app, Mezu works a bit differently and in a way that I, myself find to be quite interesting.
Mezu works with a unique code that only you and the receiving party will know.
Once they enter that code, the money will be sent and both of you will be notified that the transaction is complete.
So if you have a favorite restaurant that you frequent and you want to tip your waiter, you can do so by sending them money directly to the unique code that will generated from YOUR phone that they can receive by entering that same code.
There is also a “drop” feature that will have the receiving party get paid through their unique drop code.
You can keep that code saved within the app and pay without having to generate a whole new code to pay that same person.
Every other code that is used to pay is a one-time deal and every transaction will need a new code every other time you pay.
Pretty simple right?
Well, that part is, but getting your money is a different story and some of you might not be too fond of how it's done.
There is only one way to retrieve the money from your Mezu account and that is through an actual bank account.
This is where I found to be somewhat of a hassle and also what might be a dealbreaker for some of you.
You can not use PayPal to withdraw your money or any other third party payment processor for that matter.
The withdrawal process isn't the easiest thing either, even if you are required to add your bank account information as well as the last four digits of your social security number.
It typically takes 0-3 business days for the money to land in your bank account but it can possibly take up to 7 days for some transactions to clear.
I mean, if you have to wait a whole week before you see $10, wouldn't PayPal be the better way to pay and get paid?
Well, there is a part of this app that can make up in this department and it is also the same reason why you see it being promoted a lot on social media.
The Mezu Referral Program
Of course the app is free to use and you are able to send and receive money fairly easily.
What you might not know is that you can make money by simply sharing the app with others, which is always a great thing in the world of apps and making money.
There are some requirements and this again might not be great news for some of you.
By referring others to Mezu, you are able to make $5 from that person if they create a new account and use your personal code.
However, this offer is only available to residents within the 50 US states, and is usually given within a certain period of time.
Upon the writeup of this review, the promo went from [su_highlight background=”#adff99″]July 16, 2018 – September 30,2018[/su_highlight] but this offer seems to be continuous as seen from previous months.
Whatever the case may be, you will get compensated for sharing the app.
Final Verdict: Legit
At the very least, Mezu is not a scam and one that I actually recommend for those of you who one, have no money to invest into creating your own online business or two, you just want to make money by promoting the app.
As far as payment processors and making money is concerned, I would recommend you stick with PayPal to pay and receive money as they are obviously the best but I would go with something like Dosh if you are looking to make money with an app.
Other than that, I hope this review of Mezu has given you all the information you need to decide on whether or not to join.
