Malaysia-based CIMB Bank says it expects to see more customers using online banking as increasing fuel costs discourage consumers from driving to bank branches. The bank's customers made about 1 million online transactions last year, the bank says in a statement. The bank did not say how many new online customers it hopes to attract. The bank recently introduced a service with Malaysian-based mobile operator Maxis Communications that enables the bank's online customers to add value to their prepaid phones by transferring funds from bank accounts. CIMB is a subsidiary of CIMB Group, which has 366 branches, 1,252 ATMs and more than 4.5 million customers in the country, the statement says.
