OFX Debuts New Currency Calculator

May 31, 2017: SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–OFX (ASX:OFX), one of the world’s largest international payment providers, today announced the debut of a new currency calculator widget on Yahoo Finance. This is OFX’s latest move to help educate U.S. consumers and businesses that there’s a smarter way to move money internationally. The widget gives users access to real-time rates and a one click option to register and transfer their international payments with OFX.

Currency transfers are commonplace in many areas of the world but less so in the U.S. OFX is intent on helping consumers and businesses understand that there are less expensive alternatives than transferring money through a bank. OFX is able to pass on their low cost of moving money online to consumers and businesses because of their global network of banking relationships and the fact that they have no physical presence.

David Nicholls, Head of Payments Solutions at OFX stated: “We at OFX are on a mission to help consumers and businesses better understand the difference between the rates banks charge each other (the interbank rate) and the rates consumers receive which are inflated by margins, markups and fees. By partnering with Yahoo Finance, we hope to accelerate savings to consumers and businesses that need to move money internationally. Armed with the right information, consumers and businesses can save significantly by switching to a provider that offers better rates and an improved customer experience.”
