The Securities Commission Malaysia (SC), Bank Negara Malaysia and Bursa Malaysia recently introduced the Electronic Share Payment facility (e-share) for share transactions.
e-Share Payment is a service provided by all stockbrokers to pay the share sales proceeds directly into your bank account as well as providing an option for you to initiate payment for share purchases via electronic fund transfers. e-Share Payment eliminates the need to bank-in the cheques received from the sale of shares and also enable you to make online payments anytime from the comfort of your home.
Similar to eDividend launched in April this year, one of the main objectives of implementing e-Share Payment is to promote greater efficiency of the payment system which is aligned to the national agenda of migrating to electronic payment.
