How to deposit cash without a money transfer
In Thailand, you can replenish your own or someone else's bank account (put money into the account) without opening an account and without money transfers. To deposit money into an account, all you need to know is a ten-digit bank account number.
With this account replenishment, you can, for example, pay for the rent of an apartment without having a bank account in a Thai bank. In addition to renting an apartment, you can pay for services or purchases in this way. This method is also suitable for depositing money into your bank account.
In English, replenishment of an account without a bank transfer is called “Cash deposit”. But in Thailand, the phrases “Drop money” and “Drop cash” are also often used to deposit money into a bank account.
Where can I make cash deposit
You can deposit money into the account:
- in bank branches
- at ATMs that support this feature
The bank account cannot be replenished at 7-Eleven or other stores.

It follows from these rules that after choosing a language, you can insert a bank card or enter an account number. If you want to replenish your own bank account, then using a bank card will speed up data entry and eliminate the possibility of error.
Initially, it was possible to deposit 15 banknotes, but now the amount has been increased to 100 banknotes.
