SYDNEY– OzForex Limited (OFX) has partnered with Shift, a leading provider of credit and payments platforms for Australian businesses, to integrate OFX’s foreign exchange service into the Shift Business Overdraft. 

This integration enables Shift Business Overdraft customers to book international money transfers with OFX from within their Shift accounts, removing the need to jump between multiple platforms.

The integration will expand OFX’s capability and presence as a global foreign exchange and payment services provider while offering Shift’s customers a streamlined international payment experience.
