General FAQs

OFX is publicly listed on the ASX and regulated by ASIC, with advanced fraud detection, and hands-on OFXperts, you can feel confident in going global.

Once we’ve received your funds, most transfers to major currencies, like euros or US dollars, are made within 1 to 2 business days. But some currencies can take longer. The currency, your recipient’s bank, weekends or public holidays, and the country you are sending to may impact transfer time. You can track your transfers online, in the OFX app, or call an OFXpert.

At OFX, we don’t have a limit on the amount you can transfer, our robust platform can handle it.

The maximum amount of money you can transfer overseas for other providers depends on the currencies you’re trying to transfer. Major currencies like USD, GBP, AUD, CAD, EUR, NZD, and JPY can usually be transferred freely. Regulated currencies like Chinese Yuan (CNY), South African Rand (ZAR), and Korean Won (KRW) may be subject to government regulations.

Why do some transfer services impose limits? 

Some money transfer services will impose limits upon the amount of money that you can transfer in order to keep their own costs down. They may limit the amount of money that you can send in a 24-hour timeframe, over the course of a week, or in the span of a month. Some services will even limit how much you can send in the course of 180 days or an entire year.  

The problem with transfer limits 

Transfer limits can be just that—limiting.

When you have a service that imposes these restrictions upon you, it means that you need to keep track of how much money you’re sending. It may mean your recipient will have to pay more heavy receiving fees more often. Plus, it prevents your recipient from receiving all of the money they need at once, and that can cause problems, especially in an emergency. 

Live a no-limit life and transfer with OFX

When you choose to use OFX to transfer money, you can send as much as you need to, and we won’t limit you in terms of how much you can send over a specific period of time either.

Don’t let limits hold you back any longer. Transfer what you need to, when you need to, by creating an account with OFX.
