HOW TO REMIT MONEY FROM DBS/POSB TO MALAYSIA BANKS



Based on my previous post about the good news for transferring SGD via POSB/DBS bank,
you all can read back at HERE.

I will share the steps which allowing you make the remittance successfully without hesitate about additional surcharge. (I noticed in FB SG exchange rate group, there are still a lot of people are not aware of this benefit)

Please share if you think this is useful for your reference. Thanks :)

STEP 1

Login to iBanking (POSB/DBS is the same) and click on 'Funds Transfer (Overseas)'

STEP 2

Select "DBS Malaysia Remit



STEP 3

Input recipient's details and payment instructions before clicking 'Submit'

Create a new recipient's details for the first timer. Fill up all the required details in the column.



It's clearly shown no service charge impose for this remittance. (no worries! Promotion is still on until 31 December 2015)


REMEMBER: Indicate before 9:25 AM and after 5:00PM including non business days. The actual rate used will be the prevailing rate on next working day.


EXPERIENCE Shared:
I made the transfer last Thursday after office hours and saw the prevailing rate was MYR 1 = SGD 0.3263 (SGD/MYR 1:3.0647)

After submitted, I received message from POSB/DBS said will be deducted XXX this amount based on this exchange rate.

I have forgotten the next day is Singapore Polling day (11/9/2015), Public holidays.
So, bank will only do the transfer on next working day, Monday (14/9/2015).

I had received another message from POSB/DBS stated that money has been processed successfully on next Monday morning,

I found out from my bank statement where I been charged in different rate. MYR 1 = SGD 0.3307(SGD/MYR 1:3.024).

Moral of Story: It's advisable to transfer submitted before 3pm from Mondays to Fridays, excluding public holidays. You will get the rate you saw and received it on the same working day.

For me, personal think that this is a safer and cheaper way of doing remittance through online rather queuing up for so long yet did not get your desire rate.

You can start to try the remittance service NOW !

P/S: I'm not trying to promote DBS/POSB remittance services, but I'm sharing my experience and you all can compare the other bank services as well.

  2. Hi, may I know how is the rate difference between online remittance via POSB and conventional exchange at money changers? Which one gives better rate? Legend has it that it's always better at those money changers. Have you tried comparing everytime before you make a remittance online?

    Thanks, you blog is super useful. :)

    1. The diff on ex.rate between remittance online and money changers about 0.01 to 0.05 . I cant see big difference if I only change eg. SGD 1K~3K.

      Not much difference if change $ at money changers. For convenience/safety sake, I would rather prefer online remittance.

      Gentle remind that this promotion ended this month. After this, service charge will be imposed.

    1. Hi, you can sign off your name when dropping your comment next time. (So many anonymous!!)

      "Indicate before 9:25 AM and after 5:00PM including non business days. The actual rate used will be the prevailing rate on next working day."

      Suggest you transfer within this timing. Cut off before 3pm that is for current promotion to key in promotion code "DBSFLY", you can refer to their website to find out more information. (:

    1. You can simply put 'others' , no problem!

      Delete
    2. But there isnt any option for "others". There's only 'Family Expense/Savings','Gift/Charity/Donations','Travel','Education','Medical fee'. :(

      Delete
    3. You can choose expense/saving in my own opinion. They can't hold your money unless you really do something bad behind. (:

    1. Hi Mega,
      You need to adjust your limit of daily online transactions (if I m not wrong, Max you can adjust up to 10k per day)

      As far as I know PBB/HL bank will not incur any additional fee.
