I am using it from last one month and it's best to transfer the money to India. They will give exact date and before that date money will be credited to your account. Customer service representatives also very co operative and they only will follow up if they need any documents. Placid is very much suggestable to send the money to India as per my experience.

Firstly, i saw placid was providing at least a few cents more than other providers and i have initiated a transfer from placid for the first time, after 3 days of process and after debit has be done from my account, i got an automated email update saying me to submit hell lot of documents, here they are: 1) An image of Driver license/state id or passport, 2) Bank statement for the last 3 months (this must be the account used for transfer) 3) A camera captured image of Yourself. the picture must be taken at the same time the driver license/state ID/passport image is captured 4) Also, Please provide the purpose of the transaction and relationship to the recipient. And a warning message to submit the above documents within 24 hours of this email Providing couple of cents more in exchange does mean that i am opening any credit card or placid is not giving me any loans to submit hell lot of documents for no reason. i used several other providers and had very pleasant experience, i wont recommend Placid at all, the one which i did not like the most is asking for a self picture of the sender is like Crazy thing i ever heard, Also Placid do try giving some credit cards/loans for customers if you are collecting these many documents. Even while opening a bank account or credit card, they did not ask these many documents. i just canceled my all transactions and using other providers like Remitly.

This is absolutely as worst money exchange company. They gave me an offer for next business day money deposit if I associate my bank account with them and I did it along with initiating a money transfer. But to my surprise I had to call them 2 times to expedite my transfer (eventhough it was supposed to be next business day deposit) and finally got it credited to my destination account after 10 days. I had a similar experience with them the first time and i thought that was the initial setup thing but even now I am having a similar or worst experience with their commitment on deposit dates. Dont trust this company for your urgent money transfer needs.

I have been using placid since last 6 months and it is excellent. Transactions are seamless, no worries any time, no need to call customer service as well, they do send appropriate emails for each stage of the transfer and also they are giving competitive market rate, very nice, keep the best service placid all the time, all the best!!!

Delay transfer. Requested documents are submitted and cleared review, but still no money received as declared. Emailed to webhelp to get the status but no response from Placid.

Every time when i try to transfer money via Placid, it forces me to enter my bank credential to expedite the transaction. but never expedited. very slow. Though it claims to be safe, i don't feel safe giving my bank credential in third party website. Ria and Remitly is way better than this.

Hi Karthik,

We appreciate your feedback. We do not have access to your credentials, the verification service is provided by a third party that is used by many other companies as well. Providing credentials ensures an additional layer of security beyond just routing and account number. Please provide your tracking number or email webhelp at placid.net and we will be sure to investigate why your transfers aren't expedited.

I have been using placid quite some time now. They are trust worthy. Once your account is verified then it is a swift process. They are secure as well. My recent transaction was delivered on time. I am happy with their service. Customer Care is nice and cooperative. Even for transfers below $250 they do not charge as transaction fee if we use our bank debit card. I am happy with their service. I recommend them for international money transfers.

First transfer took ample time. The subsequent transfers were transferred with in 1 or 2 business days. My recent transfer took hours:) There is no transfer fee incurred even on less amount ( which is a very good one). The exchange rate was also competitive. Periodical messages about transfer progress was good.
