How to activate a Wirex card

Activating your physical card is an important step before you can start using it. In this article, we'll guide you through the process of activating your Wirex card. 

Before we start, make sure you have received your Wirex card and have it in your possession. Now, follow these simple steps: 

Step 1: Log in to the Wirex app 

Open the Wirex app and log in using your credentials. If you haven't downloaded the app yet, you can find it on the App Store or Google Play Store. 

Step 2: Navigate to the "Cards" section 

Once you're logged in, navigate to the "Cards" section of the app. Here, you will see all your available cards. 

Step 3: Activate your Wirex card 

Select the card you want to activate and click on "Activate". You will be asked to confirm that you have received the card and agree to the terms and conditions. 

Step 4: Verify your card details 

To verify your card, you will be asked to provide some basic information, such as card number, and expiry date. Make sure you enter this information accurately and double-check it before submitting. 

Step 5: Set up your PIN (only available for Visa)  

Once your card is verified, you will be asked to set up a PIN code. This is a four-digit code that you will use to authorise transactions with your card. Make sure you choose a PIN that is easy for you to remember but difficult for others to guess. 

Step 6: Link accounts 

Select the accounts you want to use with your card. Please note, at least one fiat account must be linked to your card. 

Step 7: Start using your card! 

Congratulations! Your Wirex card is now activated, and you're ready to start using it. You can use your Wirex card to make purchases online or in-store, withdraw cash from ATMs, and more. 

In conclusion, activating your Wirex card is a quick and easy process. Just follow the above steps, and you'll be up and running in no time. If you encounter any issues during the activation process, don't hesitate to contact our Customer Support team for assistance. We're here to help you get the most out of your Wirex card!
