Daniel E Conradasked

I have had a bad experience with OFX lately, When it all started everything was just great all my transfers went through without a problem until i tried checking up my OFX account online because i sent some funds to a family friend who was not around to check up to see weather the funds has reached his bank account so just when i decided to check my OFX account online i was asked to call them before i could gain access to my account which i did only for one of the workers there to talk to me like i was some criminal for using their service after using it for months with no problems until i got off the phone and sent them an email demanding and asking them about the last transfer i made and made it clear to them about sending my funds back to me if it hasn't gotten to the recipient that was when their manager sent me an email telling me the funds was sent back to them for no reason and i simply asked this guys to send back my funds to my bank account just the same way they debited it out of my account only for the manager to tell me to go to my bank and ask them to make a recall before i get my money , I went to the bank and my bank manager had no idea of what a recall is even though the OFX manager seems to be the only nice person at that department am starting to loose my patient all i want is my money back i have read a lot of cases like this why would you stress people before sending back their funds to them ? You guys better make a ACH wire transfer to my account of the exact funds you debited out of my account i am not interested in dealing with you again all i want is my funds or i will sue you , I made a that transfer on 11th July till now am unable to get my money back since the transfer to the recipient bank was not successful and you confirmed to me that you have my money with you please kindly send back my money into my bank account or i will sue your company i won't wait much longer again . I won't advice or recommend any one to use OFX when i believe there are better money transfer companies out there who would not keep their customers funds for any reason.

Sharmanasked

Hi, my OFX account is in Australia but I am working in France now for a short time. I have just entered a new recipient to my account because I want to exchange some AU$ from my home bank in OZ into euros and deposit it to the new recipients account. However, the new addition is not showing up on my list of recipients so I cannot complete the transaction. My new recipient is a company in Germany from whom I am purchasing a car - if that makes any difference. Any ideas?

Hi Michael, Thanks for your question! OFX offer JPY, however, we are unable to service customers who relocate to Singapore or Japan due to licensing restrictions. As OFX works within a highly-regulated industry, we must adhere to certain requirements set out by our regulators and we are unfortunately not able to service clients in Japan and Singapore.

ajarnasked

Have had an account for about a year and no problems.

Today tried to transfer AUD to THB as usual. When I open my account it says my "preferred" currency is CAD. When I go to the drop-down to change this to AUD, Surprise. AUD is NOT an option
Any thoughts??
Tried calling their customer service number but after 15 mins on hold thought maybe it is a 'holiday' at OFX

I assume Ozforex could do it but they have a flat $15 fee for transactions under $10000 so it might not be practical. However, I have seen mention of regular payments mentioned on their site so it might be worth phoning them.

We have a handy Currency Converter which will give you an indication here: http://www.ozforex.com.au/currency-converter When you're ready to transfer just give the team in NZ a call on 0800 161 868 (Free call) and they'll lock in the best rate and advise the process.

Ben1234!asked

I am wanting to transfer AUD to make a payment in Indian rupee to an Indian state owned bank. In the past, when using an Australian bank for the transaction the indian state bank had several issues processing the payment because they routed it through another branch. Has ozforex managed such payments to Indian state owned banks (rather than an international bank locate in India)?. Thanks

Nope India is not on the list of currency that OzForex have included in their list. Check with them I think but only Aus, Pounds, NZ and Canadian I think. Best to check.

Thanks - I have confirmed with Ozforex that they do exchange Indian Rupee. It is more an issue of the recipient being an Indian state-owned bank.

keichannasked

Hi,
I am travelling to Japan soon and I would like to transfer the money over to my japanese account from australia. What kind of information do I need to provide for my japanese bank account, eg BSB, account number, swift code etc. Thanks.

3 answers
Quinn Mathieson
Quinn Mathieson

No swift code but yes you will need the full bank account number in Japan - when you raise the order and list Japan as the receiving account it will come up with the correct number format for Japanese accounts.

If it helps my initial concerns were unwarranted. The transfer I made to NZ was smooth and considerably cheaper than using a bank!

When you initiate the contract you will receive a phone call from OzForex and can ask them any questions you have - the only complaint I would have is that the phone call is NOT in the 'few' minutes they indicate online - it is an hour or so later and likely to be when you are busy doing something else or no where near your desk or something!

karenleo18
karenleo18

I would email Ozforex and ask them to contact you by telephone. They will let you know exactly what you need to provide. I have had my account for a long time and had to provide more information a couple of years ago so am not current with exactly what you need to provide. Also I joined whilst in the UK. I have always found the staff accessible and extremely helpful.
