Yes, for most of the customers who complain about their remittance service provider, it’s been a nightmare on why the delay happened just for them. Yes, it does happen and ultimately it’s not completely just on the remittance service provider but on the whole end to end process. The reason may be because of the following:

  • Delay with processing by the remittance service provider.
  • Last but not the least sometimes the time zones and the time at which you send your money also makes a difference.
