I got the best Malaysia bank to deposit US cheque rate from LowYat website.

Standard Chartered Bank:

Bank Muamalat:

Alliance Bank:

Southern Bank:

Some of the process fees are cheap while some are very expensive. I have 3 bank account from the list above, Public Bank, Maybank and HSBC. Among 3 of them, HSBC processing fee is the cheapest ~ RM11. Why do I need to find the cheapest rate? I have a USD 20.63 cheque to clear. And I don’t want to waste the money for bank fee.

I bank in the US cheque in HSBC. It took exactly 1 month to clear the cheque. And charged RM 11.65 as processing fee. Hmm… I still prefer Western Union or PayPal payment. It is lot faster and easier. No need to show up at bank to get the payment. And no processing fee also…

  • Wah liao…HSBC charge RM11. I wonder why bank needs bailout…they are real money sucker 😀

  • How bout AmBank?

  • @Wing Loon: Sorry… Don’t know. 😛
