What transactions can I make with my currency account?
A Wirex card and its associated currency account share the same balance. While the card is used for online payments, the account comes in handy when you need either to buy cryptocurrency, sell it, or top up your balance with traditional bank methods, such as bank transfer.
You can top up the currency account in the following ways:
- using SWIFT (currently, this works only for GBP)
- using Faster Payments (within the UK) or SEPA transfers (currently available in all EEA countries)
- with a linked local card (please see the list where this service is available)
- exchanging the cryptocurrency into fiat
To top up your account balance with a bank transaction, use your currency account details.
Also, you can easily exchange the fiat money from your account into cryptocurrency.
Note: Wirex USD cards can only be topped up from external bank accounts or with cryptocurrency, but not from Wirex fiat accounts.
