Transfer speed with WorldFirst depends on the currency you're sending or buying, the bank used and the size of the transaction.
OFX's global network of banks allows us to transfer money overseas securely and quickly. Most other major currency transfers may arrive within 1-2 days (from the time OFX receives your funds). While banks require that you submit your money transfer orders during their business hours, OFX operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
If you're a private client you can use your debit card to send your money to WorldFirst. This is one of the fastest ways you can pay.
•Online/Telephone Banking (Faster Payment)
This usually arrives with us the same day or the following morning.
A BACS payment takes two working days for funds to arrive. They will be cleared funds on the third day, which is when your payment will be able to leave WorldFirst.
If you're sending us GBP funds, WorldFirst can collect them by Direct Debit. Once a direct debit is set up, WorldFirst arranges collection of the funds and it is similar to a BACS payment in terms of clearing times.
A CHAPS payment is a same-day payment and will arrive with WorldFirst on the day you send it.
WorldFirst can receive funds from an account in a different name to yours, but it will need to verify the source.
Available for Visa debit cards in GBP issued for UK customers.
As worldFirst is making the payment on your behalf, the funds will arrive in your beneficiary's account from WorldFirst and not in your name. There will also be a reference which starts with WFPAY and followed by a sequence of numbers.
