How to fund your account with a debit or credit card

Wirex offers a hassle-free way to add funds to your account using your credit or debit card. Follow these simple steps to add funds to your Wirex account using your card: 

Step 1: Log in to the Wirex app 

To begin, open the Wirex app on your mobile device and log in to your account. 

Step 2: Choose a currency to top up 

Once you're logged in, select the fiat currency you want to use to top up your account. You have various options, including USD, EUR, GBP, and more. 

Step 3: Select your linked card or add a new one 

Next, choose the linked card that you want to use for the purchase. If you haven't linked your card to your Wirex account yet, click ‘Add New Card’ and follow the instructions in the app to do so. 

Step 4: Enter the amount 

Once you've chosen your card, enter the amount of the traditional currency or cryptocurrency you want to purchase. You can select from various currencies, including USD, EUR, GBP, BTC and ETH. 

Step 5: Review the details and confirm payment 

After entering the amount you wish to spend, review the transaction details to ensure everything is accurate. Once you're satisfied, tap the "Confirm" button to proceed with the payment. 

Step 6: Confirm the purchase with 3DS 

To complete the purchase, you may need to verify the transaction using 3DS (3-D Secure). This is an additional layer of security provided by your bank to prevent fraudulent activities. Follow the instructions in the app to complete the 3DS verification process. 

Please note that during the card verification process, there may be a temporary reduction in your limit. Ensure that your card is verified to enjoy full access to all the features of Wirex. For more information, refer to the How to Verify a Linked Card and Increase Funding Limits guide. 

With Wirex, purchasing traditional currency or cryptocurrency using your credit or debit card is easy and secure. Follow these simple steps to add funds to your Wirex account and start your journey.
