Here’s what happy customers have to say

“We didn’t know that something like OFX existed. We were going through our banks and getting charged extra. It was a light bulb moment for us. It’s literally saved us thousands of dollars; it’s been a game changer.“

Kate and Rebecca,
Co-founders, Better Packing Co.

“In the midst of a transfer at 2 o’clock in the morning, I accidentally sent funds to the wrong supplier, and it was quite a large amount of money, I just felt sick when I realized what I had done! I called OFX and they got the money back for me from the wrong recipient and then organised the payment to the correct recipient. I just could not believe how they went the extra mile to do that and how smooth it was, it was incredible.“

Margie Moroney,
Founder and CEO of HOLOS luxury knitwear

“I feel like Matt (OFX Corporate Dealer) knows me and I like to think I know him well too. There is a consistency and trust in the way you do your business. Are you guys the cheapest and best in the world? That’s irrelevant. What’s relevant is I feel really confident doing business with you. You have to be sure someone understands what you want to do. These are important things for small businesses.“

Owner,
Nicholas Hacko Watches
