I have now used Transferwise two times. It appears that they use Wells Fargo Bank in the states and Bangkok Bank in Thailand.
 Frank, please keep us informed of any information updates from Transferwise and others.  Thanks.

What exactly do you mean by "it gets rejected"? My experience is if I apply online to soon a boxed message comes up saying contact immigration office. If I apply within the 15 day window allowed I can fill in the online form, I believe two pages. Hit the submit button and it either gets approved or just sits there pending approval and nothing happens.  I have found that only completing the mandatory fields (*) seems to help. For example, only your family name is mandatory, your first and middle names are not mandatory so I leave them blank.

I just spent 3 1/2 hours at the Main Branch of Bangkok Bank here in Khon Kaen with the "Foreign Remittance Manager" and a couple of his hench(wo)men.  Trying to ferret it all out, he contacted the "expert" in the Main Office of Bangkok Bank- Bangkok.  Conclusions:  1) they are focused primarily on the transmittal (direct deposit) of Social Security pension payments, 2) the Expert said that SSA has already implemented IAT and they are for Direct Deposit Accounts here in Thailand (and between the local office here and the New York Branch, they will happily process and coordinated the direct deposit with the SSA),  3) they have no answer for other agents such as US Banks or company retirement systems who routinely process "Domestic ACH transfers", 4) yes, if you write a check on your US Bank current (checking) account, they will process it within 60 days at a cost of $55 USD, and 5) SWIFT is another alternative.

I also sent an inquiry to TransferWise, here is their response:

Thank you for getting in touch.
At the moment I am unaware of the exact answer to this questions however I have passed the question on so that we can provide an amicable answer.
For now however my initial response would be that since TransferWise does not utilize international ACH it would not be an issue.
The way our product works is that when you transfer money via us you would sent it via a local transfer from your USD account to our USD account and then we convert the money and then send the money from our local THB account to your local THB account.
I hope this clarifies some of the issue however as I mentioned we are looking into the IAT question and will get back to use once we have an answer.
Kind regards

Two in a row. Before going to play golf yesterday I did the online 90 day report. It was approved in 4 hours. I got the automatic email from immigration with the link to the approval. Printed out the document that I then stapled into my passport. Next 90 day due Jan 14, 2019.

With all these issues trying to transfer funds from the US to Thailand through Bangkok Bank Ltd using ACH Transfer (domestic), has anyone gone to their bank and ask if the bank will accept and process a personal check from a US Bank On Demand Account?

It seems to be very popular so many stores run out of it, but they all seem to have dozens of the various connectors.

Ours runs 24 hours a day, you never know what is in store for your house when you are not there, even for an hour or two, daytime or nighttime.  The system is automatic and stores for at least several weeks worth of information, and automatically continues to record over the old information.  You can download anything you need to your smart phone or your computer by going online and accessing the system.  If you want to play back on your PC or your smart phone, simple as pie.

If you try to do the motion detector approach, everything and anything can set if off and begin the recording including a bird flying through the field of view.

You should be able to get a 2megapixel camera (4)  and 2TB recording capability system for around 20,000 baht installed with at least a 1 year warranty.  We had one camera go out for the infrared.  The company came took it and returned it fixed, no charge.

It was so easy for their technicians to install where I am not sure I could have done the whole job myself even though I am a graduate Engineering Physicist!  They know all the items and implementations that are needed!

If you need Pixels phone number. PM me, Henry.
