I have a bad customer experience with placid express. First of all they hold your transaction without any cause. Cash pick up supposed to remit within 2 days and further back verification it shouldn’t be take not more then 3 days but it took almost 6 days to remit the fund. I wish I didn’t choose this service for my urgent fund. So got my experience, will never use this service anymore.

Worst service. They created a mess just for transferring $1K . Took all my details and even after showing all required docs, they did not do the money transfer. I think that's how they are collecting ppls info. I am happy they I got to know about them before transferring big amount.

Placid is the worst site I have even seen in 10 years. Be aware from this. Worst customer service with 0 knowledge to help customers.

As everyone said, the website is not great. And causes multiple problems. In India new state Telangana was formed 5 years back, but it is still not in the states list. Some IFSC codes are not available and we have to call the customer service to add them. And the UX is not great, I accidentally added an extra 0 in the recipient bank account and there is not way to correct and save it on the website or delete that recipient. Each time I transfer I have to remember that there is a mistake and correct it. Since I transferred after a long time, I forgot and the transaction failed. But one redeeming thing is that their support is really 24x7. Whenever I called them they picked up the phone and helped me. So make sure you don't make any mistakes while sending but it would be a lot better if the website UX improves.Thx for being responsive on phone but improve your website to make it easy for both the users and yourself.

They never return the micro transaction $1 which they use to confirm the card, so they say transaction fee is $1 but it's $2.

Very slow Service. Mine took 10 days to transfer. Whats the point of taking better rate ?? Poor customer service. Not sure why it takes so long for them to remit the Money. Submiited my SSN, DL, Utility Bill, my paystub. Now an idiot calls me from Unknown numbers asking my work email for verification purposes. Crapy Service!!
