Since OFX transfers are sent from one bank to another, they can take a few business days to arrive. Although the company states a transfer speed of 1 – 2 business days, some customers find that transfers arrive before or after this time frame.
OFX estimates that it has processed $90 billion worth of remittances over the past two decades with more than 1 million users worldwide. The company is known for promising its customers fee-free transactions and the ability to send money to a variety of locations.
The company has offices in London, Sydney, Auckland, Hong Kong, Singapore, Toronto, and San Francisco.
It expanded and operated several different territory-specific brands, including OzForex, UKForex, CanadianForex, NZForex, USForex, and ClearFX and Tranzfers, before consolidating the brands into OFX in 2015.
