Hugosway customer service is available only in English and there are two ways to contact eToro’s customer support:
The Live chat is pretty easy and looks like the ones offered by other brokerage companies. There you will get a response within several minutes during business activity hours.
The request created via e-mails takes a bit longer and the response for it is usually received within one or two days depending on the question.
The broker does not offer any phone support.
