There are so many mobile wallets that we have in Singapore. One of the more popular wallets is PayLah!, which was created by DBS bank.

After receiving money from your friends through PayLah!, you may wonder if you’re able to transfer it back to your bank account.

Here’s how this mobile wallet allows you to withdraw money to a bank account.

Can I transfer money from PayLah! to my bank account?

You are able to transfer money from DBS PayLah! to your linked Singaporean bank account. This linked account can either be a DBS or POSB account, or a bank account registered under MyInfo.

Here is an in-depth explanation of how to withdraw your money from PayLah!:

Transfer from PayLah! to DBS or POSB account

Signing up for PayLah! is easy when you have a DBS or POSB account.

There is no difference between the two types of accounts as they belong to the same bank.

All you’ll need to do is to login to your digibank account to link your PayLah! wallet to your bank account.

It is possible to link a bank account that does not belong to POSB / DBS with PayLah! too.

When you are signing up for your PayLah! account, you will be asked to register via MyInfo instead.

MyInfo is an integrated data platform that allows all of your data to be retrieved from one place. This is also how you are able to access SGFinDex using your SingPass as well.

MyInfo will link any bank accounts it finds to PayLah!. After that, you are able to withdraw money to your linked bank account via the same steps above!

There are daily transfer limits to transfer from PayLah! to your bank account

There are daily transfer limits to transfer money from PayLah! to your linked bank account. The limits depends on the type of linked bank account you have.

Type of Linked Bank AccountDaily Transfer Limit
digibank user
(POSB / DBS account)
Either of $100, $200,
$500, $999, $2000
MyInfo user
(Other bank accounts)
$999 (default)

You may want to take note of these limits, especially if you’re transferring a large amount back to your bank account!

Transfer all of your money automatically into your bank account (set a $0 wallet limit)

You may be worried about the hassle of constantly withdrawing money from your PayLah! wallet. There is a workaround to this, which is to set a $0 wallet limit!

What this means is that your PayLah! mobile wallet cannot hold any cash inside. Whenever someone makes a payment to you, it will be instantly credited to your linked bank account.

To enable this function, you’ll need to go to ‘More → Manage Wallet → Wallet Limit‘.

This allows PayLah! to debit the required amount from your linked bank account. If you do not enable this function, you will not be able to make any payments via PayLah!.

This is because you will not have any money in your mobile wallet to make the payment.

Conclusion

Being able to withdraw money from your PayLah! wallet is an extremely useful feature to have.

Other wallets like GrabPay and Singtel Dash have this feature as well. However, there are certain conditions that you may need to meet first!

In contrast, PayLah! does not have any requirements to withdraw your money from the wallet.

Furthermore, you are able to withdraw your money into any Singaporean bank account. It does not matter whether your account belongs to DBS / POSB or not. This makes PayLah! one of the more flexible mobile wallets in Singapore!
