Note:  Mastercard users may notice that they are being charged a commission when using their card to top-up their Wirex account. The exact commission amount will vary and depend on the issuing bank and card type (credit/debit). If you’d like to clarify your specific commission for Wirex transactions, we recommend you contact your issuing bank directly. The relevant Merchant Category Code is 6051. Visa users are currently not charged commissions for this type of transaction
