How do I send money from my Wirex Account to my bank?

Can I send funds to my friends or a company? 

Yes, you can send funds to someone you know or pay a company by making a bank transfer. You need to follow the same steps as when you send funds to yourself, but you have to input a different name/company name. 

IMPORTANT – When sending funds to an account that isn’t your own, double-check the account details are correct and input a clear reference so they know the money is from you. Also, consider whether the company you are paying is a scam before you send the funds. If you are unsure, do not make the payment.
