Dozens Discussion & Feedback

My number is 2834 in the queue and 43 people behind me😂


(Richard Bairwell) #188

How do you find this out? [regarding the position of the queue - Discourse automatically removed the original quote]


(Nathan Steer) #189

When you open the app after your documents have been reviewed and approved, it will state your position in the queue


(Punit Mannari) #190

When you open the app, it tells you your position


#191

Interestingly (to some, maybe), my initial application was declined, and I just left it there.

Since the app update, it now gives me my position in the queue (I haven’t re submitted or anything).


(Richard Bairwell) #192

Ah, I’m still in the verifying your identity stage - so by sounds of things a step before it tells me where I am in the queue.


(Nathan Steer) #193

Heh, interesting… maybe someone took a second look at your application and gave it the ok or something? :smiley:


#194

Yeah, when I spoke to @rob_dozens, he said there was likely no issue - It was just a few teething problems with the verification (something I see a lot of other people have also had).

Nice that it’s all coming together.

The queue screen looks nice! :joy:


(Punit Mannari) #195

I forgot to update, my passport was accepted, I emailed them to rob…


(Punit Mannari) #196

Any ideas when it will be launching?


#197

Curious were you just asked to send via a normal email or did they use any kind of encryption/secure email service?


(Punit Mannari) #198

No, I just got an email from rob, to email him and compliance pic of my passport…which I did…just normal email, I used my gmail


(Juan Mendes ) #200

same problem…Rob sent me an email explaning the situation…they recently updated the app…still waiting :smirk:


(Nathan) #201

Yeah also had problems getting my passport verified.

Decided to give up and just wait till proper launch and hope these issues are resolved


#202

Have you re checked the app since it updated?

I had the same passport problems, but after the update, it put me in the queue.


(Juan Mendes ) #203

Yes…same message…they are doing checking my information…and they will back to me asap


(Nathan) #204

Yes unfortunately same issue. Just doesn’t seem to pick it up, tried many different rooms/lighting combos


(Stefano) #205

I’m in the queue! Really excited to try it out.

I listened to the podcast and I have to say, first of all, how impressed I was by Aritra’s vision for Project Imagine and his knowledge, which really shows through his answers. It made me feel really confident about putting savings into a dozens account.

Some things in particular stood out for me, which I don’t think currently come across successfully from the information on their website and could possibly help people understand their vision better (I appreciate the conversation covered a wider perspective than the dozens app itself and that the website might still be in early stages, but still):

  • the spender / savers / investor trajectory as a way to see their audience, and for people to see their own relationship with money
  • the difference between an app that ultimately just offers spending analysis, and one which actively helps you budget
  • how they can offer such high interest and how this is sustainable – I wish the website would elaborate more on this in particular.

Yes, it’s kind of “oh, by the way, 5%”, and it seems a bit unbelievable. Then the podcast reveals that the whole entire company is structured around providing new savings/investments products and their whole purpose is to help people save.

I’m gung-ho and signed up anyway, but I’m sure others would be more cautious without an explanation. I think that’s coming though.

Is Dozens FSCS protected? I’m considering consolidating and putting all my savings into Dozens…
