Should I voluntarily file for bankruptcy or should I wat for a creditor to di it?

I found out that I can voluntarily file for bankruptcy if I incur a debt of S$15,000 or more and I can;t immediately pay for it but I've also discovered that creditors can also file me for bankruptcy as well. Would it be wiser to let my creditors file for my bankruptcy so I won;t have to go through the troube of filing one for myself or should I just voluntarily file for it myself?

    It would be better if you to self-declare bankruptcy yourself instead of waiting for creditors to sue you because the interesst on your debt might continue to increase while you are waiting. It doesn;t matter who files for bankruptcy because the cost of bankruptcy application deposit will likely be borne by you as the debtor.

    CardUp charges you a transaction fee for each payment made.

    CardUp / CardUp

    Every transaction you complete using CardUp will incur a 2.6% transaction fee. This can actually add up over time, especially if you’re relying heavily on CardUp. That being said, if your card offers cash rebates or frequent flyer miles, you may easily be able to offset the transaction fee. CardUp works by being a middleman in your transactions. Instead of directly transferring funds from your account to a vendor, you pay CardUp via credit card. CardUp will then transfer the funds to your designated vendor. CardUp charges you a transaction fee for each payment made.

    Revolut / Revolut

    I like how you can transfer your cash out and it’s liquid and at the same time you can use it for overseas payments. Love the feature of the one- time destroyable card number to protect your wallets from fraudsters. Very simple and straightforward user interface. Topping up the account was easy using credit card and there were plenty of security tools that allows you to turn on & off real time to keep your account safe. Real time viewing of exchange rate in app is definitely a function that I love so that I can do the conversion real time to know how much I will be spending in local currency.

    No refunding from wallet if there is an error in the process of toping up an amount

    NETSPay / Electronic Transfers Singapore

    This platform provides zero flexibility of refunding from wallet if there is an error in the process of toping up the amount. Been told by Customer service that the only way is to terminate the account and the refund will be credited after 2 weeks. The UI as well have to be clear at the home screen on which default payment mode are we on as I've been told that the payment mode might switch every time after updating the app

    You don’t need to top up credits to send a transfer

    OCBC Pay Anyone / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    OCBC PayAnyone works in the same way as DBS PayLah. The main difference however, is that while you can still register an account with DBS PayLah without a DBS/POSB account, OCBC Pay Anyone is connected to your bank account so you need an OCBC account to use Pay Anyone. The transactions are then credited to and deducted from OCBC savings or current accounts. You don’t need to top up credits.The good thing is that the recipient you are sending money to via Pay Anyone doesn’t need the app to receive the funds. They will receive an email link whereby they can click and key in their bank information to receive the money. However, if you already bank with OCBC, you will have the option of using OCBC PayAnyone to directly pay from your OCBC savings or current accounts.
