They are not on time in transferring the money to India and they are not keeping the promise. the customer support agent is given false information and i will recommend not use the Placid service. Instead please use Remitly.

I have been using placid quite some time now. They are trust worthy. Once your account is verified then it is a swift process. They are secure as well. My recent transaction was delivered on time. I am happy with their service. Customer Care is nice and cooperative. Even for transfers below $250 they do not charge as transaction fee if we use our bank debit card. I am happy with their service. I recommend them for international money transfers.
