Wirex payment cards with currency accounts

Region: Europe

Wirex never stops enhancing your fund management capabilities. Now, new Wirex payment cards are issued together with their associated currency account. The card and account have the same balance, which allows you to top up your Wirex account using traditional methods such as bank transfer. At the moment, the associated currency account can only be created with the GBP and EUR payment cards and is not available for other currencies yet. The new payment cards also come with awesome limits: maximum balance of 15,000 GBP, 16,000 EUR, and 20,000 USD with unlimited load amounts. See more about card limits here.

To make online purchases more secure, new Wirex payment cards are empowered with  Verified by Visa (VBV) protection. Find more details on how this works for Wirex cards here.

Note: you can order a card only after your Wirex account has been successfully verified.

We are continuously expanding the list of the countries where we provide our services. Please find out if Wirex payment cards are available in your region.

At the moment, the following kinds of Wirex payment cards are available:

You can have up to three payment cards simultaneously: one card in each of the available currencies (GBP, EUR, USD). Wirex payment cards require additional activation in the Wirex app.

Ordering cards and opening currency accounts is free, however you will be charged a monthly fee for account maintenance by the issuer. For more information, see Wirex fees

While a currency account will not expire unless it is closed, the payment card is valid for three years. Afterwards, it needs to be reissued. You can also reissue a card if you suspect its details have been compromised. See Card blocking and unblocking for more information.

An account may be opened only twice in the same currency. This limit is set to prevent chaotic account management. Thus, before closing your currency account, please give it your careful consideration.
