How to send funds from your Wirex account

Note: We are currently carrying out some necessary maintenance on the platform, which will temporarily limit transfer functionality. 

If you have already made a bank transfer using your IBAN, you can still use these in the currency you’ve previously used. You cannot however open up a new IBAN for other currencies that you have not used.

GBP transfers IN and OUT of your account using Faster Payments are not affected. 

If you have not already made a EUR bank transfer, you can still make a new request to make EUR payments, but these will be limited to SEPA and SWIFT payments IN to your account only.

All other features like your Wirex Visa card and exchange services are not affected.

You can send funds from your Wirex account to another Wirex user or to an external bank account. See how to add and manage your counterparties.
