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…
How to payback PTPTN loan online? It is much easier to pay PTPTN repayment now. We can pay it online using FPX service. There is lot of Internet banking that we can select from like Maybank, Public Bank, CIMB, Bank Islam, Hong Leong Bank, RHB… The entire PTPTN repayment process takes less than 5 minutes to complete using online method. Isn’t that great? Note – RM0.50 charges incur for FPX service.
How to payback PTPTN loan using online method? No worry. Just follow the steps given at PTPTN E-FES website. It is as easy as ABC. But you need to have Internet banking account first. Then, you don’t need to go to bank to pay PTPTN loan repayment already.
Of course… The better is that we don’t need to pay it back at all.
