  • Feature for pricing alerts when your currency reaches a specified price.
  • 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.

eForex Cons

  • The rates are competitive but you are likely to get better rates if you shop around other money exchange providers.
  • 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.
  • Delivery service only on weekdays 10am – 5pm.

Overall: A convenient way to save time checking, exchanging, and receiving money if you do not mind not getting the absolutely best rate. (Currently available only for Klang Valley).
