I am using Remitly for 3 years to transfer money to India. I would say this is the best to transfer. Remitly provides better exchange rates, hassle free transfer

I used Remitly to send funds back home to India. I was obviously nervous but to my surprise the funds reached within 2 hours. I did get a call asking questions but because I did not do anything wrong, there was no problem. I also availed sending limit service and got approved. Basically, if you are honest and got the right paper work, it will be hassle free. I'm in banking so know that it takes just one suspicious transaction to get fined heavily by the regulator so they are cautious. I am now using them 2nd time through economy so let's see.

I am wondering why there are so many negative reviews about this service. I used this service 6-7 times and it worked fine for me all time. To be honest I do not have any experience with the cancellation of the transaction. For money transfer, it is very good service and I recommend for money transfer to India.

I started using Remitly a year ago to transfer money to India. Funds are deposited on time as promised. I usually go for the 'Economy' transfer which gives you better x-change rate but takes 5 business days to complete the transfer. Do not expect to get it before 5 business days even though Remitly gives you a window of 3-5 business days. In case of an emergency, 'Express' transfer has been helpful with immediate transfer of money and that too within an hour. Here Remitly has consistently out performed it's promise of 4 banking hours. You pay for this service with a lower x-change rate. It's usually 50 paisa less than the economy transfer but this service is a savior when time is not on your side. The website is on par with other similar service providers. The mobile app is also well built with all the necessary features required to make use of the service on the go. I found it simple and easy to use. Online/Telephone support provided is prompt and clear even though I have used it sparingly. I hope it shows that I had little to complain other than the initial few requests to setup the limits. Overall my experience has been really good. One recommendation that I have is to reduce the number of days taken for economy transfer. 5 business days sometimes throws me off especially if the request is not made on a Monday.

Hello Vikash,

Thank you for the perfect rating!

We would love to let you know that when it comes to sending money home quickly, you can send with Remitly Express using your debit or credit card. Transfer time ranges from a few seconds to a few minutes. With Remitly Economy it will always take 3 business days, as transactions must go through the standard banking process; we wait to receive the funds from your bank before we send the funds to the final destination.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you need any assistance. We look forward to continued partnership with you.
