Generally, the beneficiary should receive the funds within one to four days. However, this may vary depending on the country or bank to which you are sending money.
Yes, we can send an enquiry to the overseas bank to check whether the payment has been made. However, there is a service charge for this.
If you are using DBS PriorityPay, where funds are transferred from a DBS account in Singapore to a DBS account in Hong Kong, we will provide a credit confirmation when your beneficiary has received the funds.
Simply select “We pay all bank/agent charges: Ourselves” during application in order to ensure all processing fees are charged to your account. However, in some cases a payment may still not be credited in full as the beneficiary bank may levy a charge for the receipt of funds.
