How do customers send funds to MTFX?
Funds can be transferred via wire transfer, Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT), or ACH payment services. MTFX maintains bank accounts in all major currencies with highly-rated banks. Our banking infrastructure ensures that you can transfer funds to us quickly and securely.
Can I cancel a recurring transfer plan anytime? Are there any conditions?
If a recurring transfer is cancelled or terminated, we will sell the balance of the purchased currency and buy back the balance of the original currency. Your advance payment (deposit) will be returned minus any losses that may have occurred due to exchange rate variations. If the deposit does not cover losses, you are obligated to transfer the owed amount.
Can I extend the maturity date of my transfer?
Yes, the maturity date (the date we make the transfer to your recipient) can be extended by changing your single transfer to a Forward Exchange Contract. If you would like to switch your single transfer to a Forward Exchange Contract, you will need to speak with one of our transfer experts.
This is only available for transfers made with major currencies and the exchange rate will change according to the interest rate differentials between your currencies. Once you have made the switch, we will require a deposit, and the balance is due a few days before the maturity date of the contract. Then all that is left is for us to complete your transfer on your chosen date.
Can I lock-in a rate prior to sending you funds?
Yes. Simply login online to lock-in your rate, provide us with your beneficiary details, fund your transaction and leave the rest to us.
Do I need to pay a deposit for a recurring transfer?
For recurring transfers, or fixed payment plans, an advance payment is necessary to cover any market risk exposure we may face. No deposit is necessary for non-fixed payment plans.
The deposit is the equivalent of one installment, and you will need to transfer it together with your first installment. Please note that the deposit is not a fee and we will use it to pay off the last installment of your recurring transfer plan.
How much does it cost to set up a recurring transfer?
Nothing! There are no extra transaction costs or fees involved when you set up a recurring transfer, just the added peace of mind knowing your payments will always be made on time. You simply pay your regular installment and the advance payment (deposit) as agreed in the transfer plan and we will complete the transfer at the agreed exchange rate.
How long does it take MTFX to transfer funds?
Our global network of banking partners allows us to get funds to virtually anywhere in the world quickly and efficiently.

MTFX also offers same-day transfers that are almost instantaneous, as well as low-cost in-country payment services for your less urgent transfers.
