WHY INSTAREM?

InstaReM is a disruptor to traditional remittance firms. Here’s why:

  • Transparency: InstaReM’s transaction charges are shown before you make the remittance, unlike banks or traditional remittance firms which charge an FX spread (the difference between the inter-bank currency conversion rate and the rate quoted by the bank or money transfer company) in addition to the transaction fee.
  • Comparative transaction charges: InstaReM offers transparent Zero-Margin FX rates*. The company charges a nominal fee (between 0.25-1%) to cover the costs of processing the transactions. InstaReM ranks as the most cost-effective money transfer service in a number of corridors originating from Asia-Pacific in the World Bank’s Remittance Price Worldwide database. *Applicable only for certain currencies and certain trading hours.
  • Speed of transaction: InstaReM is able to transfer funds typically within 24 hours in Asia, compared to the average two to four days transfer by banks.
  • Wide reach: InstaReM can send funds to over 3.21 billion people in their local bank accounts across the globe. Businesses and individuals from Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, India, EU and the US are able to remit money to 55+ countries worldwide.
  • Bulk payments: Corporations/SMEs use InstaReM's MassPay platform to manage and control their high-volume remittances to multiple beneficiaries in multiple currencies via a seamless process.

FAST FACTS

  • Reaching over 3.21 billion people across 55+ countries
  • Partner network of 8000+ banks globally
  • Growing team of 150 employees across eight global offices

WORST CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE EVER!!!! I have the worst customer experience handled by Instarem. There are multiple reasons why I don’t want to use their platform anymore. They don’t have any phone support. When you use the chat support, you need to mention that you “need a live agent”, before you can speak to a live agent. To those who are not computer savvy, you’ll get lost. I contacted them asking for assistance, I was disconnected twice. And suddenly you are speaking to another agent, without knowing. They will disconnect most especially if you are upset. TRAIN YOUR AGENT!!! I was given the wrong information many times. There are limitations when adding a beneficiary. I contacted them how they can help me remove or update the beneficiary, then don’t have the capability. What if those beneficiaries are no longer available, so how can you use the platform. ISN’T THAT STUPIDITY RIGHT? So in short, stop using their platform. That’s what they are telling you. I contacted them, asking if we could update the beneficiary, they couldn’t help. I was advised to open a new Instarem account, so I created one. After creating a new account, I have waited for 3 weeks to a month to finish the verification. I am sending them multiple follow up emails, yet none respond. Then I need to contact them again, through the louzy chat. I was disconnected again. Then someone called me, ask if what account I would like to retain - and i have provided that information, I followed up with them again, then asked the same questions. I told them that I have provided those information already. Yet they don’t have the record. Then I informed them again. They closed my old account, yet the new account remains under review. Then I followed up again. Until I received information that I could not open a new account, and use the old account instead. Knowing that they have closed the old account already. I asked them if you are going to open my old account, how can I use it, since the beneficiaries could be of no use? They could not give a direct answer. It ended up that they closed the new account, and reopened the old one. The question is, WHAT IS THE USE OF REOPENING IF THE BENEFICIARIES ARE NO USE TO ME???? Even the manager has no answers to me. I was given different reasons and information. The survey link that they sent isn’t working, coz they know that I will give them ZERO (not one star!) BUT ZERO IN HANDLING AN ISSUE AND CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE. In the end, my issue is not resolved, no compensation for the damage they have done, and provided the worst customer service experience. I am thinking of looking for a LEGAL ACTION of what they have done, since I have all the emails as proof of their NEGLIGENCE AND IRRESPONSIBILITY.

I always look for good exchange rates and offers on different websites. I started using insterem couple of months ago and I never found better price elsewhere. Yes you may go through trouble of giving documents and information the first time but it’s smooth sailing after that. Get $20 when you use my referral https://www.instarem.com/invite/1fkpMh

Illogical business model “What is your relation with mr xyz” He is my spine and he has his own account Totally illogical time wasted process Why would you even question such queries and what’s the purpose We are different individual and we have the right to operate our own instarem account with different bank account Theee non sense queries cause days of delay Last time using instarem

instearem have to refund my money and they ask for million documents for this. and if i cant find or dont have a document - refund is not done... lawsuit will surely get a refund but why a company will not simply refund the bank account the money is debited from through ACH? this is robbery.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING AND AWESOME, PURE MAGIC..!! Feeling extremely overjoyed and grateful for getting such a rare chance to write my first ever review for so wonderful blessing to all the human race, called "InstaReM". Joined them by a sheer, coincidence in Dec-2018, had a great time till Jan-2020. but the most amazing, awesome, magical and eventful period started since Sep-2020, which is still not over even now. during which i was damn lucky to know many staff employees by name and rank and i am learning so many new lessons and tricks from them. Who said there are only 7 wonders in the world..?? InstaReM is Astonishing, Beyond Compare, I'd say (shout) many times over & over again. The magnificent treatment & service InstaReM is providing to the mankind is difficult to be praised in so little space with limited words. The icing on the cake are the never-ending bonus discount offers and the cherry on the top are the InstaPoints given in bunches. Never knew anything about fishing till i met InstaReM. A very big salute to Team Instarem (support) & Team InstaReM (connect) and a huge thunderous applause for Compliance B2C (operations). (Reminded a dialogue from RAMBO-3, GOD must love the fools the most because HE makes so many of them.) The world may find a vaccine for Covid-19, sooner or later, but i am sure nothing gonna ever surpass InstaReM. Oh, No..!! How can one forget the TICKETS issued by InstaReM, time-&-again-&-again-.. Wonder these TICKETS are of a Circus or a Suspense Filled Thrilling Horror Movie.. No Doubts, what-so-ever, about InstaReM's SMOOTH & SILKY "SPICULES" and InstaReM's Lightening Speed towards the deepest depths of DARKNESS. Aahhhh..!!!! now i am out of breath & out of adjectives as well. The Very Best of Good_Luck and may GOD Bless us all. AMEN..!!

First time use this instarem and get Really bad experience. After successfully verified all documents , got msg that mention that refund initially due to technical error. That’s not valid reason. Never use this remit application again. Please aware of this type of fraud company

Instarem using 'Plaid' third party vendor for backend money transaction, while you send money by ACH you need to login your bank account through Plaid. But Plaid capture your bank account details and keep accessing your account every 1 hour even your transaction is completed. I reported this to instarem many times, everytime they saying fixed my issue after worked with Plaid but it not fixed at all.
