I am sending money to India. How do I determine which provider is the best?

  • A reliable provider typically must :
  • Disclose all the taxes and the fees applicable when transferring money
  • Have adequate security measures when signing up for an account along with setting up your own pin & give you multiple ways to access your account
  • Give out correct information on how much & when the money will be available
  • Provide you with instructions on your right to cancel the money transfer
  • Give you the right to submit a complaint for investigating transfer errors
  • Give you a chance to cancel your transfer
  • Must disclose their detailed privacy policy
  • Should be reachable 24/7 via email, phone or other communication channels.
