Wirex contactless card waiting list

March 22, 2018 12:30 pm Published by

The wait for our new contactless card is almost over.

Having sourced suppliers, taken community feedback and opinion on card design and finish and commenced with manufacturing, plastic cards will become available within the coming three to four weeks.

To ensure you’re on the waiting list, enter your email and update to the latest version of the Wirex app.

Yes! Let me know the moment Contactless Cards are ready

Until today, Crypto-card providers required a complex web of suppliers and integration partners:

Wirex has now simplified the eco-system by building on top of the W-PAY blockchain platform used by our business partners and liquidity providers.

This means we’ll be able to bring better foreign exchange rates, faster KYC customer verification (even same day verifications), with cards delivered fast from 15 card printing facilities located around the world, extra security measures (including 3D Secure support) and a more reliable customer support service.

Put your name on-to the mailing list to ensure you don’t miss out on the new and improved Wirex Payment Cards.

    Cant wait for the new cards :heart_eyes:

  • Bigswede

    I am new to Wirex. So are the virtual cards still available on the app while you wait for the new plastic cards ??

    It all seams a bit patchy to be honest .


  • raphael.shalaby

    Currently, all of our customers and the majority of the customers using a crypto wallet paired with a payment card are unable to offer their customers any type of Visa Payment Card.

    This was a shock to the entire crypto community, as this left over half a million people without a means of payment, overnight.

    Fortunately, Wirex are over 6 months down the line with the integration of a solution, and we’re pretty confident that we will be the first to offer a solution to this problem.

    I hope that answers your question?

    I’ve been using Wirex for a while and looking forward to their solution… the Wirex bank account I presume?

    Also, looking forward to their integration with DASH so that I don’t need to Shapeshift my DASH into BTC and deal with the associated delays and fees with using Bitcoin!!
