I used a few services, so far this has been the worst experience. I have summited a transfer more than a week ago and it is still not completed and I can't get a straight answer from them about what is the hold up. It takes forever for them to pick up the phone. They promised to call you back and never will

First of all Indicative rate here is not the same as actual placid website. It is slowest among all and I had to call multiple times for releasing funds and still not been processed. and call center was not helpful at all.

Great service and one of the best for international money transfers. Offers great exchange rates, fast processing times and efficient verification. All my transfers went smoothly and got credited even before the due dates, used multiple times. Highly recommended!

Worst money transfer service. Collected all my personal details SSN, DL, Paystub and bank statement and still asking for more docs. Don't trust them by looking at their rate.

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.
