Swan Luv: Another Interesting Idea Wasted

Swan Luv started out as a loan type of company. It’s initial promise was to select applicants to receive a loan of up to $10,000 with the gamble that the two wouldn’t get divorced. Sounds kind of ingenious, doesn’t it?

The launch was set for Sunday, February 14th, but instead the site “crashed” and when it was started back up, it was with a new type of platform.

Instead of having couples sign up to possibly receive a loan, Swan Luv turned their site into a crowdfunding one.

To say people are angry is an understatement.

Swan Luv claims they sent out surveys asking customers what kind of platform they’d prefer, and everyone claims to have never received such a survey, let alone any email. Swan Luv blames “regulations/restrictions” and “billions of dollars of demand” on why they switched their whole platform.

As many people on Swan Luv’s Facebook page stated, if a couple wanted to ask for hand outs from family and friends then they’d just rather use GoFundMe.

All in all, Swan Luv seems to be just a hyped up crowdfunding site. If you’d like to look into other crowdfunding sites to use instead of Swan Luv, two very good ones are Fundrazr and GoFundMe. If anyone has any better sites then please leave a comment and I’ll add them to this page.
