How do I compare money transfer companies when sending money to Malaysia?

As with any product, you’ll find the best deal by shopping around. When you’re using our table to compare, keep the following in mind:

  • Exchange rate and fees. Make sure you compare both. While one company might offer a great rate, it might charge higher fees. On the other hand, a company offering a poorer rate may have low or zero fees. Equally, some providers will waive fees if you’re transferring a larger amount.
  • Pick up methods. Some transfer companies require that you transfer funds to the recipient’s bank account. Others give recipients the option of picking up cash, which can be particularly useful if the recipient does not have a bank account.
  • Transfer methods. If you’re dealing with a mainstream bank you can visit a branch to transfer funds. Otherwise, depending on the service provider you choose, you can transfer funds over the phone, on an app, online, at stores or at specific kiosks.
  • Transfer time. If the recipient needs money in a hurry, your best bet is to look for a service that allows cash pickups because this method normally takes no more than a day. Bank account transfers can take between one and five business days.
  • Minimum transfer amounts. The minimum you can transfer can vary from one service provider to the next. While some may let you transfer as little as one Great Britain pound, some others have minimum limits as high as £1,000.
  • Customer service. If you plan on transferring money to Malaysia on an ongoing basis, you may want to look for a company that offers high levels of customer service, along with support via phone, chat and email.

    Does the Malaysian government limit the amount that can be transferred to a Malaysian bank?

      Hello Ginny,

      Thank you for your comment.

      There are some Malaysian banks that have their own set of limits per transfer. Most of the Malaysian banks let you transfer a maximum transfer limit of RM 50, 000 and daily transfer limit of MYR 10, 000. You can also confirm this from the bank.

    If I want to send 10,000GBP to Malaysia how much fee I have to pay if I use bank transfer can the bank just simply do deduction from the amount or I have to pay the fee separately not from the amount or vice versa. Thanks.

      Hi Lily,

      Thanks for reaching out.

      For you to determine how much the transfer fee is, you may need to check with your local bank. Generally, the fee should be on top of the amount you are sending. As we do not represent the companies featured on our pages, it would be best that you contact the bank.
