To send Bitcoin from your Wirex bitcoin account to an external one, follow the steps below:
Log in to your Wirex account > select your Bitcoin account on the left-hand side.
From the actions list> select Send.
Enter the amount you wish to send and insert the recipient's wallet address, email address or phone number, add a message to the recipient (optional) > click Send Funds.
Confirm all the details by clicking Confirm. Use Change transaction details, if you need to amend any information. Please note that all Bitcoin transfers are irreversible.
You will get a Transfer Confirmation email. For security reasons, it will expire within 1 hour. Click on Confirm Transfer to complete the transaction. If you have previously sent Bitcoins to this address, no confirmation is needed (the transfer will be sent immediately).
NOTE: You should enable two-factor authentication (2FA) for any outgoing transaction. For transactions over 0.01 BTC, 2FA is mandatory.
You can also send bitcoin using your Wirex App, see our Wirex App: How to send funds to an external Bitcoin account article for more details.
NOTE: Depending on how many confirmations the recipient's account requires, the funds may take up to 30-60 minutes to arrive. If the recipient's wallet provider supports BitGo Instant, they will receive the money immediately.
