Coinmama has ok customer support. They have a dedicated staff that is available 24/7 for emergencies. Unfortunately, responses can take a while and are often not very informative.
Their FAQ section is thorough and updated regularly.
As with just about everything in the world, reviews are mixed. They are a popular service with thousands of users and sell a ridiculously large amount of cryptocurrency daily. So, they must be making at least someone happy.
They have also stated, and I think, demonstrated a renewed commitment to improving their customer support.
However, there is no shortage of complaints and bad reviews. Some are understandable, some aren’t, and some seem to have been addressed since being made.
All in all, they seem to have a reasonably responsive support team. The responses aren’t always great and sometimes can take quite a while to arrive, but they have community trust and demonstrated a commitment to user privacy.
I’ve used Coinmama, may use again and would recommend it to a friend starting. They are a reputable company with decent support.
The fees aren’t great compared to other exchanges, but they’re alright for a brokerage service using credit card transactions.
Final Verdict: Excellent for beginners to easily, safely, simply and quickly Buy cryptocurrency.
