I received a message from Maybank2u that I was selected for pre-register for DuitNow. At first, I thought that I will receive money from Maybank. Wow, I am so lucky today.
I was wrong. It’s actually a new way to send and receive money thru all bank in Malaysia.
What is DuitNow?
DuitNow is actually a new real-time online fund transfer service that allows you to transfer funds to your recipient’s
DuitNow ID instead of their account number. Basically, it just replaces your bank account number and makes payment easier.
You can register and transfer funds using DuitNow via Maybank2u and Maybank2u Biz. This is an industry-wide initiative among all banks to simplify funds transfers while maintaining a high level of security.
What is DuitNow ID?
DuitNow ID is an identifier which will be used to register your account numbers and it can consist of any of
the below. You can register one DuitNow ID to one account e.g. your mobile number to your Savings
Account and your NRIC to your Current Account.
a) Mobile Number
c) Army or Police Number
d) Passport Number
e) Business Registration Number (for Maybank2u Biz account holders)
DuitNow ID is unique, hence can only be registered to one account, regardless of whether the
accounts are from the same bank or different banks. So you need different DuitNow ID for each account that you have.
At the moment, Savings Accounts and Current Accounts can be registered for DuitNow. You can choose which account that you want to register with DuitNow. You can change the account once the features are available via Maybank2u/ Maybank2u Biz or at any Maybank branch starting December onwards.

RM50,000 is the maximum standalone transfer via M2U. However, for M2U Biz, daily maximum
standalone transfer via M2U amount is RM 100,000.
Transaction Fees for DuitNow

RM5,000. (RM0.50 charges applies for DuitNow transaction via M2U and M2U Biz)
Verification for DuitNow ID
Before confirming the transfer, it’s important that you check that the name belongs to the intended recipient. When you keyed in the DuitNow ID, the registered account holder’s name will be displayed.

I was about to transfer some donation to a personal Maybank account. After I key in my TAC number, I received: Unsuccessful – Account is not authorized. Reject Code: 
I was quite surprised. Because I am pretty sure that I still have sufficient balance. So I did some research on Maybank Facebook Page. I foundout that error code 0076 refers to account not authorized normally due to:
Account status (account dormant/ inactive and maximum transaction numbers in audit trail).
For fund transfer, either sender or/ and recipient account reached the maximum limit of account transaction number (audit trail).
Account status (account blocked due to loan/ credit card payment issue).
Amount payable is not matched with the outstanding/ due amount (for credit card/ loan payment).
So my guess is that maybe the account has too many transactions. Did you know that for Savings Accounts, the number of transactions that can be done is limited to 30 pages/bank book pages or 120 transactions within the 5th to 20th day of the month or the 21st to the 4th day of the following month.
This is because savings accounts are intended for savings or income/salary credits. If your account has a high account transaction frequency, your ‘audit trail’ of your account will be full and transactions are not possible.
How To Solve
To resolve this, please bring your ID, ATM card and bank book (if available) and visit the nearby Maybank branch counter for the branch to assist you in updating (clear audit trail) of your account.
If you intend to use an account for business purposes, Maybank will recommend that you apply for a current account opening that can accommodate an unlimited number of transactions.
You can request a M2U Premier account opening with a minimum deposit of RM500 only. Applications can be made online through Maybank2U. For more information, please refer to the following link:
