I like this site as a way to quickly start a fund for someone in need. I don't like that I get a lot of Spam once I've become a user. They also take a lot off the top. Now that they are a larger company, I think they can get more advertisers and reduce the amount they take from those in need.

I have been using GoFundMe to raise money for my medical fund and have had no problems... they do take about 10% of everything you collect but I knew that up front. It does take a few days to get the money transferred from GoFundMe to your actual bank account but I knew that up front, too. I find it pretty easy to use and share and I have no real complaints.

I set up a fund for a friend diagnosed with cancer and though the whole procedure was easy enough to do as well as the collecting of donations, there was a rude surprise when i tried to withdraw the money. I thought I had researched on the site well enough to know what to expect but was frustrated when it actually occurred. I my case I did not wish to burden my friend with any part of the process and wanted to handle it on my own. As i went trough the process to set that up, suddenly things became complicated. even with back and forth email I was never given enough information at one time to know what to expect. When it became clear that the only way the money would be released was with authorization from my friend, I proceeded only to discover that my friend had to make a copy of an ID with him in it and address some additional requirements. I was mad that only till the end did I find out that my friend, dealing with his diagnosis and medical appointments had to comply with requests for him to meet their demands. My advise is to be fully aware of what you must do before, during and after the fund is initiated.

Very difficult to get a correct answer on get money out gofundme it shouldn't take 2to 5 days if your going to take money for your services then speed the process up there people that really need that money for medical expenses it's hard as it is to ask for help then for gofundme to make you wait is not right it takes them 3 seconds to pull the money for the bank account of the donor but takes up to 5 days for the person needing it to get something not right on that end some one needs to look in to gofundme and explain why if bank accounts are all ready Verified it shouldn't take up to 5 days gofundme is joke
