Dodopay App Review

You can start making money by sending your referral code to friends, you make money every time they do transactions; Users can only cash out from their total earnings when it hits 5,000 naira.

Dodpay App Interface

The design of the app is good and very easy to navigate when performing different transactions. The dashboard flexibility and ability to add any profile picture of choice is what I love most about the dodopay app.

How secured is Dodopay

The application automatically logs you out after a few minutes of inactivity, and you would have to re-enter your four digit login pin again.

Based on my transactions while using the app, Dodopay would need to tighten its security. Incase of theft of users device, only the four digit pin gives access to the information and account. Each time I login into my account no email or SMS is sent as notification.

Limitations of the Dodopay App

Final thoughts

I came across the Dodpay app online and decided to try it out. The app design is top notch and very easy to use. It worked perfectly okay except a few times I had network issues and it came with an unexpected transaction fee of 39 naira after transferring 5,000 naira to my regular bank account. I actually thought it was a zero charge or no charge as claimed by Dodopay but sending money to other Dodo account is free.

Lastly, the need to add a face or finger print ID as an alternative means to login is paramount. This provides extra security for each user.

Note: When you put in your BVN, Dodopay doesn’t have access to your account. It enables you perform transactions on the app without restriction and for Identity verification like all other apps. My friend was scared at first when he was called by Dodopay customer agent to provide his BVN details on the app. That brings me to how Dodpay customer care support satisfied me with responsive calls and attention to make sure the issue I had with the app was sorted out.

Finally, the app is convenient to use and the costs for each transaction are not that high. The mobile app covers almost all transaction needed by individuals and businesses.

Dodopay is available for iOS users – Download here and for Android users here. (You can use this referral code: 3229406 during registration.)
