This is one of the few services that charge no fees for paying from debit card and there's no payment method more convenient than your debit card. And this method also delivers in less than an hour.

Placid gets faster as you start using their services. Rates are quite competitive as well. The only space where they can improve is having a simpler UI and user friends apps
