Note:

  1. Tracing, recalling, and charging back payments must be requested through Customer Support.
  2. In Foreign Exchange transactions, currencies are converted at the relevant wholesale rate.
  3. The currency account monthly maintenance fee is deducted on a monthly basis regardless of your account activity. The first payment will be deducted on the 20th day after your account has been created. Successive payments will then be deducted on or around the same date of each month thereafter. If there is not enough money in your currency account to pay an applicable fee, your account balance will be negative and the only transaction you will be able to mae thereafter is a balance top-up, before being able to continue using the account and card. If your balance remains negative for 2 consecutive months, both the card and account will be closed. You will not be able to open a new account until the fee due is paid.
  4. There are no blockchain fees when sending from one Wirex account to another. However, if you wish to transfer Bitcoin to and from a wallet outside Wirex, you will be subject to blockchain fees. Wirex uses dynamic blockchain fee that is calculated based on blockchain load. Thus, the fee for a transaction may end up being 4 times less during periods of lower blockchain traffic.
