MEPS Payment

 

MEPS (MAS Electronic Payment System) is an online Singapore Dollar (SGD) inter-bank payment and settlement system, which allows instantaneous and irrevocable transfer of funds and securities. It is the fastest way of remitting SGD funds in Singapore. This service is available at all CIMB Bank branches in Singapore.

Demand Drafts

 

A demand draft is a written order issued by CIMB Bank to its overseas correspondents to pay a stated amount in foreign currency or SGD to a named beneficiary. CIMB Bank or our overseas agent will pay your beneficiary when the demand draft is deposited and cleared by the beneficiary's bank. While the speed of remitting funds via a demand draft will be slower compared to a telegraphic transfer, the associated charges are lesser. You can send money in various currencies to most parts of the world.
