ING international transfers no longer available

ING previously offered customers international money transfers through a partnership with OFX.

However, as of July 2019, this service has been discontinued. As a result, ING no longer offers international transfers from any of its accounts.

What does this mean for me?

If you’re an ING corporate or institutional account holder in the United States and want to make an overseas payment, you will no longer be able to transfer directly from your ING account. Instead, you’ll have to use a third-party money transfer service to complete your transaction.

What was ING Direct?

ING Direct provided a convenient and competitive international transfer service managed by OFX, an Australian foreign exchange specialist established in 1998.

What other products and services did ING Direct offer?

The ING Direct International Transfers service provided by OFX was also available to business customers. It offered competitive exchange rates for small to medium businesses and the same fee structure as applied to personal customers. Every client was also assigned to an accredited foreign exchange dealer to help manage their international payments.

Bottom line

ING Direct no longer offers international transfers to its customers. Instead, you can compare all money transfer providers to find the cheapest and safest way to send money overseas.

    Is your international payment process RTGS, real time gross settlement ?

      Hi Sabeth,

      Thanks for your question.

      The ING Direct International Transfers are offered by OFX. With OFX, you can order an expedited payment through RTGS for a small fee, but these expedited payments may be limited to certain currencies and are expedited on an individual basis. In such cases, OFX delivers your funds within two hours (although the funds may arrive within five minutes). Please visit OFX official website if you like to know more about RTGS.
