I started using Placid almost a year back and i found to be the best one available when compared to the other options. Very fast and reliable. Customer service is quick and responsive and I have not had any issues till date. They also provide good rates and so I would be continuing to use Placid and would recommend anyone to use it.

I am using placid for almost a year now. They give very good rates and we get the same rate for even 100$ transfer. The only issue I had is they deducted the money twice for my last transaction. I am working with their support team . Hope they should resolve the issue in 24 hours
