EDITORIAL REVIEW

Founded in 2001, Remit2India is powered by Times of Money and the partner bank is Axis Bank. It provides both guaranteed and indicative exchange rate and is the flagship brand for TimesOfMoney (TOML).

In order to send money through Remit2India most of the services require the sender to use a bank account. In the US, one can use the ACH transfer system to transfer money. The transaction takes 4 working days. In the UK, money can be send using either Net Banking Facility or Wire Transfer. You can send the money to over 90 banks in India. Sending large amounts of money using wire transfer through Remit2India takes 2 working days. 

Remit2India's money transfer service is flexible about the mode of receiving money and ascertains that the recipient receives the funds. The money can be received directly into the bank account. The money can be deposited in over 90 banks that include 11,000 SBI branches across the country. 

The transactions can be tracked through Remit2India Status Tracker. The transfer fee for the services is slightly high and ranges from $3-$25 depending on the amount of money you send. Service charges may be levied too depending on the discretion of TOML. Remit2India claims that there are no additional hidden fees associated with the services.

But what is attractive about Remit2India are the discount offers. Limited time offers give a fee waiver for amount over $1000. The Money on Referral program allows both you and your friend whom you refer to receive referral money.

Remit2India has also won many accolades in the past like the 2010 Standard of Excellence Award from Web Marketing Association and was recognized as the "Best of Industry" in the International Business & Technology categories for 2010. 

Ultimately, Remit2India does not provide a wide variety of services like other remittance companies for sending money to India. There are no fast remittance services but it does provide a big platform for the users to save money by giving various kinds of discounts and offers.

Hi Bill,

Apologies for the inconvenience caused to you. As a part of our regular security monitoring process, all customer accounts and transactions are run through internal compliance and monitoring controls. The transactions are processed only after proper due diligence. We regret to inform you that your remittance request could not be processed due to compliance controls. We had initiated a refund to your source bank account on November 09, 2017.
We value your relationship with us and look forward to serve you in future.

First time user. Transacted AUD 5450 on 25th October. KYC requirements all provided including bank statement 90 days transactions, passport, notice of assessment and full tax returns. They advised that they need wage slip. Clarified that self employed do not have wage slips. But they would not try to listen. Finally asked for refund. A week has passed but not got money by now. So they are holding funds for 2 weeks and I don't know how long they will take to refund. They may be good for small transactions but certainly not recommended for large amounts.

Hi Pankaj,

This is definitely not what we want to hear from our valuable customers. We request you to provide us with your Remit2India customer id or transaction reference number so that we can address your concerns and take corrective steps.

Very bad customer service. The call operators dont really care about the clients. verification process takes so much time. They just show offer on their website which is actually not reallity. customer executives are also really unprofessional.

Thank you Kunal for being our valuable customer.

I had a good experience with Remit2India contrary to what is written in the reviews. Thanks to the 90 paisa extra offer through CompareRemit, I got a great value for my money transfer to India. As I was a new customer, compliance verification was done and documents were asked that took some time. But money came into the account as it was promised. I am happy with Remit2India and would recommend this to others.

Thank you so much Dinesh. Your feedback is important to us.

So far so GOOD, I didn't face any problem as mentioned in some reviews. My money was deposited on time as mentioned. Only advise I would suggest to Remit2 India is please send regular updates on the status of the transfer.Sometimes they give a gap of one or two days to send email updates. But overall a GOOD money transfer experience.

Thank you Atharva for being our valuable customer.

Money transfer with Remit2India was efficient. Their team was quick to solve all my queries and the best part is that they explained the charges and it was assuring to see that there were no hidden fees, unlike other remit agencies. Over the time I have used services with other agencies, which have been so disappointing that I was skeptical doing any transactions with any type of remit agencies. However, with Remit2India experience, I will definitely use their services due to the transparency they provide with their transactions.

Hi Dhruba,

Thank you so much for your kind words. Our service team is elated. Look forward to your continued patronage.

I recently had to send a bug chunk of money to India for a property purchase. In the past I had sent via wire transfer from my bank. This time the rate they were giving was very low. So, I had to look at other ways and three main options stood out - Xoom, Money2India and Remit2India. Xoom has limitation of how much you can send. I wasn't super happy about Money2India's customer service - different agent gave different information. Plus, they wanted copy of my SSN in an email, which is a big no no. So, finally I decided to go with Remit2India and I am glad I did. First of all, the customer service executive I worked with was excellent. He was honest, patient and more importantly he knew the process and clearly communicated the steps and kept following up with me and was available to answer any questions, if I had any (his name is Srikanth, btw). From the day I started the transaction, the compliance verification, local bank to bank wire transfer and actual transfer of funds to India took 4 days and money was deposited in India bank account safely. I read that lot of folks have had frustrating experience, but I would rate them very high because of 1) their process WORKS! 2) the agent was very honest and 3) money was delivered within the timeline they promised.

Thank you Rishant for using Remit2India services.

Incredible service!! I tried Remit2India services for the first time and I am really impressed with their customer service efficiency. I have always dealt with all my financial matters through bank, hence I have always been highly sceptical to try the new methods. But Remit2India explained the procedure in detail with lots of patience. I will strongly recommend Remit2India services to everyone.

I am never against policy or providing documents. Those should be explained well before infuriating wire transfer. I do not know anyway to get back the time lost. If you know any way you better explain to me. we do not initiate money transfer just because are we are bored. You need to understand purpose and expedite customer requests and make sure your reps explained everything of the requirement of all the documents needed and process which helps customers to decide whether to use your service or some thing else. It took 5 days to ask for bank account details after refund requested, not sure how long it takes to return amount . Hopeless service. I would never use or recommend this.

I do not have zero stars, so chose 1. Will never use it again. First of all incomplete & false information given related to account verification, when asked for refund advised its going to take 5-7 days. They do not care customer needs. Internal back end department does not talk to customer service and customer service has no status of the refund. I am stuck with a pending wire transfer transaction for refund and leaving huge amount with them do nothing but waiting at their grace. it takes 48 hours to take internal approval for refund then 3-5 days of processing. For acknowledging email also it takes 24 hours. I wonder what era we are in, felling like 1980's. For inward transactions they immediately accept amount and convert and keep in their account. I do not recommend this to any one and do not ever wish to use this service. I would rather pay and get better service from my US bank which would have enabled me to serve the need without waiting for a week.

Hi Brij,

Our program is designed to ensure that we comply with the standard compliance requirements. There are circumstances where we must obtain essential information from our customers to process the overseas transaction, which may include obtaining your SSN details etc. We are aware of our competitors having different controls than Remit2India. Please be informed that we have a privacy policy that ensures we handle customer information with safety and we maintain a security system that encrypts customer information internally. We have been enhancing the experience of our valuable customer with the help of their suggestions.
We value your feedback and will look into appropriate implementation of the same. We look forward to your association with Remit2India.

While registering on remit2india, they asked for SSN. I thought twice before I provided my SSN on their website as I was not sure how securely that handle such critical information. Also the data breaches that are happening to big gaints like Equifax, Target, Home Depot, it will be a piece of cake for SQL Injection, Cross Site scripting kind of attack to hack and get all the data that remit2india maintains. On top of it, they also ask you to send the scan of SSN card. In last 12 years since I got my SSN card, no one had ever asked me to provide a scan copy of my SSN card so why only remit2india needs it? I would stay away from them.
