What information do I need from my recipient to send bank transfers to Malaysia?

  • Full name. Please enter your recipient’s full name. To avoid any delays, the recipient’s name should match the name on their bank statement exactly.
  • Full address. Please enter your recipient’s full address. It must match the address on their government-issued photo ID for them to successfully receive their funds.
  • Account details. We need your recipient’s (1) bank name and (2) account number which is 12 digits long.
  • Mobile number. We use this to send an SMS notification to your recipient informing them that their funds have been credited.
  • Sending reason. Please indicate whether it is “family or friend support,” “purchase of services,” “property payment,” or “sending fund to self”.
  • Email (optional). We use this to send an email to your recipient with details of the transaction. This is particularly useful in case they have issues receiving the SMS notifications. 

Please ensure that all your recipient’s details are correct. Once you make your transaction, it is difficult for us to amend or stop the transfer, although we will always try our best to do so.
