Placid for Remit

Placid provides great transfer rates. I like how it authenticates each time before initiating a transfer and avoids accidents. I could vouch for placid.

I tried to send money from USA to the Philippines going from bank deposit to bank account using Express Banking Verification. I forgot that they were accessing my account and got an unusual login notice and changed my password. Placid waited several days then canceled the transaction. This was probably my fault but now they won't let me send any transactions. Alternatively I've used Remitly Express Service with great results and almost instant service on three occasions. I think any time you use a service that isn't almost instant you are asking for major problems with the transfer. This is according to the results on the Better Business Bureau website for both companies.

Requesting to provide a review of my last transaction and Placid Express will give me $10 gift cards. Its really bad to provide gift card for review. I don't like to use this money transfer website. I used to sent money free but now they are charging $4.99 for each transfer. I will never use this site. Please don't use this web site. They are sending money immediately in home country but taking 2 weeks time to deposit in recipient account.
