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 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.

Thank you Niti for being our valuable customer.

I rarely did money transfer before and whenever I did I used to go to my bank for it, hence I was unaware of how easy it is to process money transfer online. My friend told me about Remit2India and how it is really convenient to operate as you can do the transfer online without stepping out thus saving your precious time. They are able to give me the best rates that help me save my money. It has been a year using Remit2India and every time I am pleased with their service. I have been recommending them to all my friends and family.

Hi,

We apologize for the inconvenience caused to you. Our program is designed to ensure we are complying with the standard compliance requirements. There are circumstances where we must obtain essential information from our customers to process the transaction. Please note our verification team tries to contact the sender within the time slot on best effort basis. In your case, the verification call was made before the time window selected by you to avoid any delay in your transaction. Your transaction is currently under processing. You will receive an email from our end once your transaction is completed.

I opened an account yesterday and here is my feedback so far. While doing my first transaction it asked my the time when you want the KYC call (no other comp do this though.) and I have a specific time for the call. i waited for the call but there is no call i received during the period however received an email saying the transfer is on hold because I missed the call. So being a good customer which I am always, I called them and omg the customer care guy. Seriously this company deserve this kind of customer rep. A- he could not answer my questions of why account being on hold and B - he was getting emotional and hyper. Finally after a never ending hold he came back and told on an priority he will arrange a call for KYC within 30 minutes and I damn believed the crap so I waited. And now it's 12 hrs 30 minutes of my wait. I have a deposit time of next month 11th which is really feels like I am in 80th era. So if they don't response and move Asap, will close and cancel.

Thank you Remit2India for meeting your commitment. As I said my complaint was only on the offer that was not met. Now, since you guys already met the offer, I am happy with your overall service and changing my rating to 5 Star. Sorry for some slang in my previous review. It was due to frustration.

Thank you Bijoy.

Remit2India Transaction was processed in Jan 2017. First of all, it took a lot of time to get the money delivered at the other Indian Bank Account. My complaint is specifically on offer related fraud. When I had used Remit2India for transferring $5000, they had one offer associated with my transaction. This was $25 Amazon Gift card which was never received. The customer service is horrible since when I called to see if they can provide me that, they said that they already sent that to me but Voucher is expired and can not offer me $25 Amazon Gift card anymore which was committed with the offer. What kind of bullsh*t response is that? I felt pretty sick of them doing this to a customer. In normal practice, it is a matter of business ethics in regards to an offer they design at the particular time associated with any transaction. They must be fulfilled. In the case of Remit2India, they are openly saying, yes we are fraud. Any business is sick when they do not keep their words. I am sick of these guys since wasted valuable 25 minutes of my time over the phone as well as in email communication. Please stay away from these a**holes. They do not deserve a single penny of your business. If you have question about my comment, please reachout bijoy.gajjar@gmail.com

Hi Nitin,

Remit2India is a pioneer in online remittances and has been serving customers across 24 countries for more than 16 years now.
If you are booking a transaction from United States then you can add your bank account for verification first, wait until the verification is completed and then later book your transaction. Alternatively, you can also add your bank account for verification and simultaneously book your transaction. In second case, the amount will be debited from your bank account while your bank account verification is in process.
For any assistance, you can always contact us on our 24X7 toll-free number 1-888-736-4886 or email us at info@remit2india.com.

I just created a Remit2India account and was about to initiate a fund transfer but read the reviews and now I am not sure if I go with them. Do they deduct the money before the bank account is verified?

Thank you for using Remit2India.

I am very pleased with the services that Remit2India has provided me in these past sixteen months. Their customer service executives are efficient and go beyond their duty to help the customer with thorough information. Since I am not very well versed with technology and thus unable to check the fees and compare the rates online, I usually call them and they have always provided me all the information that has helped me get the best rates for my transfer. Thank you.

Here is an update for all potential customers of remit2India. IT is now 8 days since remit2india received my money. They have closed my transaction but have not returned my money. I am now preparing to inform authorities if my money is not returned today. Be warned that this company is a dishonest company and you should not take any chances with them.
