How to Transfer Money to Overseas using M2U Visa Direct

The Cheapest Way to Transfer Money to Overseas

download

Normally, for internationally money transfer, I would prefer  Western Union to send money from Turkey to Malaysia, as the fee is much cheaper compare to Telegraphic Transfer (TT).

I believe a lot of businessman and parents are looking for a cheaper way to send money abroad either to pay for product from oversea or paying their children university tuition fee..

Maybank has introduced a cheapest way to send money abroad by using M2U Visa Direct.

M2U Visa Direct enables Maybank2u customers to transfer money to any overseas issued debit, credit or prepaid Visa Cardholders via Maybank2u and Visa Network.

You can make a real time fund transfer for a flat service that cost RM 10 to more than 200 countries. However you can send money for FREE /waived from 4 November till 31 December 2014.

You can send to any overseas issued Visa cards worldwide. However, M2U Visa Direct is not available to Visa cards issued in only 8 countries i.e.

  1. Colombia
  2. Cuba
  3. Iran
  4. Israel
  5. USA
  6. Sudan
  7. Syria
  8. Venezuela.

Too bad USA is on the list, since a lot of Malaysian students are studying there. As for businessman you can always find other alternatives such as Singapore to buy your product. As nowadays, regional agent will take care all enquiries from ASEAN countries.

 How To Transfer Money Abroad Using M2U Visa Direct

M2U Visa Direct is a cross border fund transfer service that allows Maybank Savings and Current account customers to perform fund transfers using Maybank2u online to overseas Visa debit, credit and prepaid cardholders via Maybank2u.

M2U Visa Direct

M2U Visa Direct Features

M2U Visa Direct Service is 24 hours x 7 days except during Maybank2u maintenance hours. Just make sure you have enough money in your Maybank account.

You can almost make a transfer on a real time directly to overseas Visa debit, credit and prepaid card accounts to more than 200 countries. The beneficiary has the option to use the funds directly at participating Visa merchants or cashing it out. No “hidden cost ” to beneficiary to receive the money.

 

My 2 cents

M2U is convenient and cheap way to send money to overseas. You don’t have to go to the bank to fill in forms and wait for your number like Telegraphic Transfer or Western Union.

However, due to the currency rate for Ringgit is worsening right now maybe its not the best time to send your money abroad.

3 Steps To Ensure Your Website Is Google Mobile Friendly

Google Mobile Friendly Site

There are a few reasons why Google decides to tag website to be mobile friendly or not. Nowadays, smart phone, phablet , tab and iPad are getting faster and have so many apps. So, user love to search any information on their smart phone or tab.

Unfortunately, a lot of user have to scroll wide to see the content and links are too close to each other with websites that are not mobile friendly. So Google decided to punish website that are not mobile friendly. Punish is a quite a harsh word, but Google now started to value more website that is more mobile friendly. So website that is not friendly with mobile display will be demoted.

Plus, by being mobile friendly, Adsense links can be displayed more properly and can boost site owner and Google Income. That is might be second reason.

I believe this is a Win-Win situation for site owner and Google. We just have to please the user.

My website initially failed Google Mobile Test due to :

  • Content wider than screen
  • Links so close together
  • Uses incompatible plugins
Mobile Friendly Test

Fail Mobile Test Google

So I did some research on how to ensure my site is Google Mobile friendly.

3 Tips to Ensure Your Site is Google Mobile Friendly

1 – First, you can follow what Google tell you to do. This to make sure GoogleBot will detect your site as mobile friendly.

  • Avoids software that is not common on mobile devices, like Flash
  • Uses text that is readable without zooming
  • Sizes content to the screen so users don’t have to scroll horizontally or zoom
  • Places links far enough apart so that the correct one can be easily tapped

After all steps are taken , please check and follow below steps.

 

2.  Use responsive layout. If you use blogspot , here is a lot of responsive layout that you cab use to ensure your site is mobile friendly. You can check here for Free Responsive Blogger Template.

My blogspot, lankapo79.com is mobile friendly with responsive blogger template.

For WordPress, you  can find a lot of free responsive themes on WordPress Theme browser.

3. Use  WPtouch Mobile Plugin that will create a slick mobile WordPress website with just a few clicks.

Having said that, some plugin as Jetpack is not compatible for Google Mobile test. That is why my site lankapo.com failed the test even though i use responsive theme.

WPtouch is a mobile plugin for WordPress that automatically enables a simple and elegant mobile theme for mobile visitors of your WordPress website.

The administration panel allows you to customize many aspects of its appearance, and deliver a fast, user-friendly and stylish version of your site to your mobile visitors, without modifying a single bit of code (or affecting) your regular desktop theme.

 By using WPTouch Mobile Plugin, it will ensure your website pass the Google Mobile Test. Below is how my site look like when using Wp Touch Mobile plugin on Samsung Note 2.

Good Luck with your website!
