OFX Wins Digital Identity Excellence Award in Fraud Prevention

We'd like to introduce OFX, the new name for OzForex. We're rolling out a new brand and a new website – we hope you enjoy using it.

So what else is changing? Well, not much! We’ll still be delivering the same excellent service using the best-in-class payments platform we've been developing over the past 17 years. The only difference is that now we'll no longer be known as OzForex. 

Over time, word about us has spread. We're proud to say we now have over 300,000 customers globally who trust us to provide services for their foreign exchange needs. That's why, starting in Australia, we're debuting our new name: OFX. It’s an international brand for an international business. 

Our customers are truly global, and our team is too. But as we grow, we’ll stay faithful to our values; we believe our business isn't just technical, it's about making magic happen. To our customers, our services are more than just good financial sense: they’re the opportunity to achieve a business goal, support family overseas, own a dream holiday home and much, much more. 

We want to provide seamless international payments for all our customers, whether they’re part of a growing business or they’re an individual transferring money for personal use. Sometimes, the two worlds collide. Recently, Athan Didaskalou, a personal customer who is also the owner of coffee subscription service Three Thousand Thieves, expanded his business to account for rising overseas demand for artisan-roasted coffee.

Like many developing businesses, Three Thousand Thieves started using regular bank services to transfer income from overseas. It wasn’t until Athan was buying an engagement ring for his soon-to-be fiancée that he was struck by just how expensive banks could be. A huge one-off transfer fee made him take notice of how much he, and his business, was being charged for international transfers. After a quick online search, Athan registered with us and completed his first transaction after receiving a call from our customer service team. 

Having discovered an alternative way to transfer money overseas that was simpler and more affordable, Athan gladly made the switch. For him, the service he received as an individual helped highlight the future benefits for his business. For us, it just goes to show – whether it’s personal or professional – when it matters, OFX it. 

You’ll be seeing more of us soon, we’re sure. In fact, all future contact from us will be under the OFX brand – whether by email, on the phone, or on our website. Everything else will remain the same: our service, our banking details, our exchange rates and (of course!) our team’s commitment to delivering the very best in foreign exchange services. 

Here’s to a fantastic future!
