How to add cryptocurrency from external wallets to a Wirex crypto account

You can add crypto to your Wirex app wallets by sending crypto from external crypto wallet(s), or requesting from family members or friends using Wirex’s Send Money to Contacts feature.

All you need to do is make a note of your wallet address. 

You can find your wallet addresses in both the Wirex mobile app and the web app.

Wirex app – mobile 

  • Open the Wirex app, and click Accounts on the home screen. 
  • Select the relevant account from the Digital drop-down menu. 
  • Click Add Funds in the bottom left corner of the screen. 
  • Select On-chain deposit. You will then be prompted to select the relevant network. 
  • You will now be able to see the wallet address as well as the wallet QR code. The wallet address can be copied and shared with any relevant parties. 
  • Receive funds to the generated address. Please note that you can only receive supported cryptocurrencies.

Wirex app – web 

  • Log into Wirex web and select the relevant cryptocurrency account from the digital drop-down on the home page. 
  • Select Add Funds and choose from an external account. 
  • You will then be promoted to select the relevant network and be able to see the wallet address and QR code.
