Important notice: platform maintenance​
In order to improve our services and make your Wirex experience even better, we’re carrying out some necessary maintenance on the platform.
Unfortunately, this means we’ve had to make some temporary changes to your account until the work is complete.​
What’s changed?​
Bank transfer infrastructure is under maintenance. This means that bank transfers IN and OUT of your account are temporarily suspended.
There are two exceptions. You can still transfer GBP in and out of your Wirex account using Faster Payments and you can still transfer EUR into your account by SEPA and Swift – but not out.
All other features like your Wirex Visa card and exchange services are not affected.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience.​

Important notice: temporary changes to traditional currency transfers​
In order to improve our services and make your Wirex experience even better, we’re carrying out some necessary maintenance on the platform.
Unfortunately, this means we’ve had to make some temporary changes to your account until the work is complete.​
What’s changed?​
IBANs (international bank account numbers) for any currencies you haven’t previously used are suspended.
Existing IBANs are not affected. You can still make transfers in any currency you’ve previously used, and you can still transfer GBP IN and OUT of your account using Faster Payments. If you have not already made a EUR bank transfer, you can still request to make EUR payments - but only IN to your account.
All other features like your Wirex Visa card and exchange services are not affected.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience.​

Hi,
It’s been 17 days I deposited £5000. It’s still not been shown on my account. I have been messed around by the incompetence of Wirex.
I need a response to my ticket 916763 urgently.
I cleared everything with my wife’s local bank there is no hold from there end. Just the utter sluggish progress of Wirex has really opened my eyes.
I expect a response now!

One of the issues of mentioning a certain provider here is that they will receive a sudden influx of persons with nefarious intent. This will lead to closure of some of the previous offers, new procedures and stricter KYC rules. If you have a estahblised account with a regular usage patern you are sometimes 'grandfathered in', however some where in the future you will also need to conform to the new KYC rules, very ofther when it does not suit you! Most often you are then ill prepaired.

So this is not a real warning, they simply have some minor issues which seems to be sorted out by now or what did I miss?

Is it possible to use their card to withdraw money or to buy stuff in shops?

Using them daily crypto transactions, cash transfers in and out and card work fine.

They have stopped issuing business accounts and are closing them down.

Do they provide a personal IBAN (in my name) for outgoing transfers now?
Do they ask for the source of funds immediately, if I deposit some bitcoins? Or only if I hit a specific limit? How high is the limit?

I have transacted 30K with no problem. Just like any bank, start small and work up to large payments in and out. Also leave a balance on the account dont just use as a pass through to start with.

Is Wirex registered as bank or is it a EMI like most of these services?
Its an EMI but I used the term bank as it is essentially one for the people that dont know.
