Got your first Google Adsense cheque (check)? Congratulations! Now, it is time to bank in your check. I will show you a comparison of processing fee between local banks.

Which is best Malaysia bank to bank in U.S. check?

Generally, the exchange rate and check processing time are about the same among local banks. The exchange rate is between 3.77 to 3.78 (check current exchange rate). The time to process the check will take about one month.

According to the thread I started in and readers’ feedback, here is the comparison of US check processing fee(per check) between different Malaysia local banks. Not sorted in any order.

  • Hong Leong Bank: RM50 + RM10 (courier) + USD75 (Citibank Delaware)
  • MayBank::
    • 0.1% of the cheque amount drawn in RM with minimum of RM25.00 and maximum of RM100.00
