    How to top up money in this?
    No need to add anything to wallet, just initiate transfer request in their app and get the reference number then use your online banking to transfer money to Transferwise's local account with DBS using reference number in remarks field..

    @asiankit I am using Harbour & Hills (previously known as GECL). They charge HK$15 as transaction fees and most times I get about 3-4 paisa less than going rate. Transfer reflects in my account next working day in normal case. They are located in Hankow center.

    On a related note, anyone looking at HKD FCNR, Federal Bank is offering decent rates for a 1Y deposit

    Money transfer to India

    Hi friends want to share my experience. Recently transferred some money using a well known bank in Hong Kong! But the money never reached India. After 3 days I got a refund with deduction of 200HKD. As per bank it is the deduction charge. Dont know what to say.
    some one told me that western union has some app and I can send money using it. Trying it today. Pls share what is the best app ya to send money back home in India! Thanks

    You should try and ask them what the reason was. Quite frequently it is a mismatch of names - first, middle, last name combos that cause rejections.
