Remitlite - Independent review

All you need to know before sending money with Remitlite



Remitlite review by Monito

RemitLite is advertising online money transfers to India from the United States and the United Kingdom on their website, but the company doesn’t seem to still be actively marketing their services and didn’t answer to our requests for information. The automated email received after the sign-up speaks of an offering still in beta but their facebook and twitter accounts don’t have any updates since january 2016, it therefore appears as RemitLite services have been discontinued.

The service offered by RemitLite as described on their website is only for private transfers into savings account or Non-Resident Account (NRI accounts) in India, paid via bank transfers or direct debit (from the US only).

Never works!

It looks like they brought the site up before they completed the development. None of the features working, better avoid it.

When we send money to my ICICI Bank account in India the money gets there in less than a Time What we think, and I don't have to pay fees . I was a little skeptical the first time I used this service especially when it was so easy and the transaction happened so fast. I've used it a second time and is very happy and impressed with the service. Plan on using it more in the future.

The exchange rate was higher but the amount that I received is less due to the service tax and other things. I have used many services prior to RemitLite but always got the amount as shown, whereas here I lost almost 1 INR per USD.

"I've been using RemitLite for quite a while now and every time I sent money it always gets there on time and my relatives back home don't have a hard time picking up the money. I just love the service. I've tried western union but I’m not satisfied with their service....they give my relatives a hard time claiming the money that's been sent to them and they ask for extra fee even though I already paid for the fee of sending it here in U.S. Keep up the good work and RemitLite is number one.

Rate is cometative with many of other exchange rate companies but it doesn't beat RemitLite in exchange rate bec they provide best exchange rate ever.I have been using RemitLite for few months now and impressed with the service and by the promotions they run.The advantage you have with RemitLite is you don't have transfer limit.You have a limit on transfer with other exchange services provider. Both of them send money in same time. and must say, their support team is equally superb.To send money very quick as compare to other providers, I would prefer RemitLite .

Unusual for a company to live up to its advertising, but they really are that good. I need to send money to my daughter in india from time to time and this was not only easy, Now I've sent larger amounts the fee seemed high compared to the bank's fixed fee, but as soon as I compared the bank's exchange rate to RemiteLite exchange rate the difference was huge. If you track the exchange rate on say Bloomberg, you'll see the rate rise and fall throughout the day. If you wait for a peak then go to RemitLite you'll see that price is immediately tracked. I will definitely recommend this service to all. Excellent service!

i have had a great experience since i started using Remitlite. I was a customer of RIA before I saw the commercial of RemitLite on facebook and twitter and since i started using it, its been a great experience, they have a good exchange rate unlike other companies and there fees are affordable. i have really enjoyed and happy with remitlite services, I have performed two different transactions and they were indeed prompt.The best thing is that its reliable and I even recommended it to one of my friends who used it also and had no issues with sending money home from the United States. I would definitely use remitlite anytime I need to send money.
