How long to wait?

(Leon Angell) #1

I signed up on Saturday. Was wondering how many working days does it usually take?

It’ll be a while. It’s only just launched and they have 70,000 people in the queue waiting

Hopefully things will accelerate soon, they’ve just started taking people from the main queue after investors. Good news is the app is looking really good, and despite a few minor glitches as you’d expect, it’s pretty solid and reliable and looks like it’s going to be a great way to invest (IMO).

I’d plan to start an ISA next April with free trade, and in the meantime build up a war chest of cash in a savings account that you can kick start your ISA with next year. By that time hopefully the initial queue will be almost cleared - you can boost yourself up the queue a little as well by referring with your link.

We’re hoping to have invited everyone who’s in the waiting list now to create an account by early next year.

But if you recommend Freetrade to someone else then you’ll get bumped a lot closer to the top so you’ll probably only have to wait weeks, rather than months, to get access :eyes:

No-one I know is interested in investing, they prefer spending their money :disappointed:

What is the rate that you are getting through people on the waiting list?

We’re adding 1,000 new users a week at the moment :chart_with_upwards_trend:

Hi Alex, How many users were on-boarded to date? Do you know?

(Alex Sherwood) #12

Right now we have 1,363 users :tada: we’ll share updates on that figure every Friday in this topic Freetrade is Out 🔥 Share your first thoughts once you get access!.

Hi, I’m currently number 1 in the queue for freetrade, I am super excited and cannot wait to get started. Does have a rough idea on how long until we can get going? Thanks

Pretty sure you will get it next Tuesday :wink:

And I moved your post to this topic to keep similar queries in one place.
