Great application (both web and mobile). Remitly is backed by Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder. Gives good exchange rates if urgency/time is not a concern. You can link with multiple reputed banks in India. I started using it in Feb 2015, and have never had any issues with them. You can use my referral link to get higher rates on your first remittance. hxxp://remit(dot)ly/oycadc

very bad servicing i spent like 2 hours to release hold on my transfer. All the customer support representatives are not even responsible on call they are not in a mindset to help the person with the issue. No one there to explain or address the issue even the manager was busy to address my issue. Even though i submitted my documents they cancelled my request.

i had a very very bad Experience , Your Money will get Transfer but week after the committed date . In my recent transaction which was expected to delivered 02 Oct 2017 . But when i checked the amount was not delivered and also i didnt got any update what was happening. When i checked with Customer care on chat then they are telling me that due to some blaaa blaa issue you money will be transfer on 06 Oct . First thing they didnt inform me .... then i have to check with the support and then my family will get the money after 4 days. The don't even care about informing the updates , but they are ready enough to send Advertisement emails. i will never ever used Remitly ......... it is better to use Xoom or Transfast ... atleast they care for the Commitment
very poor service. 2nd time this year of delayed remittance. will shift to other more reliable provider.
Remitly is well over five stars, service is fast and very secured and it is less cost than any other method out there.
Remitly reviews are “Great” according to reviewers on Trustpilot. Remitly was reviewed at a rating of 8.8 out of ten, with 90% of the 2,100 reviewers rating it at four or five stars. Fewer than 8% of reviewers rated Remitly’s service at one or two stars.
Positive reviews of Remitly included comments like, “After some time getting everything set up , it was fast and easy. Love how I was kept informed of the progress from sending to getting picked up. So easy to use.” and “I would use their service again . it was so easy and fast, the recipient received the money in their account within 5 minutes and there was no charge for sending from a debit card.”
Although they were significantly in the minority, Remitly did have some negative reviews including, “What a foolish policy asking a customer that bring an ID with date of birth of your recipient, only then will they allow you to send money.” and “Don't send money here if your recipient bank is PSbank and especially during Thursday Canada time because they will wait and hold your remittance for next week’s banking hours.”
Notably, Remitly responded to almost every negative review on Trustpilot with an offer to look into and resolve the issues for the reviewer. In many cases they also offered to refund their money transfer fees.
