(my red WordPress t-shirt and my Google cheques)
I hate waiting for Google cheques. They take an eternity to arrive and take even longer time to clear from the bank. In fact, I am so bored of waiting, sometimes I never even bother to collect from my sis’s house. Hehehe, it doesn’t come to my house….you know why? ;)
So, I am really glad to hear that we can now arrange for the money to be transferred direct to our Malaysian bank accounts. I read about the method from Kongtechnology but I haven’t enquire about them from CIMB yet. I intend to personally go to CIMB and settle this. It is much easier to see the officer and get the right answers.
I am making a trip to CIMB this week to :
1) Open (more) FDs :)
2) Enquire for a debit card which will allow PayPal to debit into my account
3) Ask how to get Western Union bank to transfer the money from Google to my CIMB account.
So, finally, we Malaysians can give three cheers that we can get Paypal and Google Adsense payments direct into our bank. Maybe it is because of the big increase of Malaysians making money from the internet? Like you and I , for example? Hehehe, just joking. But seriously, we are finally making money in legitimate ways and this is part of the factor, isn’t it? Can I say, Malaysia Boleh!!!!

I just hope that the charges for WU and paypal withdrawal will be kept at the minimum level.. btw this is great news for us!

WU doesn’t come cheap, the last time I checked on it, decided that paying RM10 fee and wait for one month clearance is not that bad.:-)

Oh, I also heard there are a lot of scams involve WU transfer. I am sure if you google you can find it.

Can cimb bank really accept paypal? i have a lot in my paypal account but still until today i couldn’t withdraw it.
There is an alternative by selling it to the paypal users, but it is too risky.
Is there any other way?

I thought CIMB Bank doesn’t offer debit cards? Easy way cash out our payments from the Internet now. No more fuss more money makers!
