Why use OFX instead of your bank?

Most people are simply unaware of the high margins and fees that are often applied by the banks for international transfers. The difference in exchange rates can often mean savings of thousands, or even tens of thousands of dollars (depending on volumes being sent). OFX also provides hedging tools in order to assist you and your clients in managing the volatility of the foreign exchange markets.

If you are remitting funds to or from NZ or Australia OFX can help.
