  • Feature for travel alert reminder.
  • Free (currently) Premier Delivery Service to deliver to a pre-registered address in Klang valley for min RM10,000 exchange.

  • When the funds are available for pickup or delivery is on “best available” basis (some have reported takes up to 3 days).
  • Limited eForex pickup and delivery locations (to their credit, pun non intended, locations are increasing over time)
  • Delivery requires passing Customer Due Diligence (CDD) process which involves documents submission, an approved location, AND performing the 1st transaction via branch collection.
