Can't make bank transfer

Hi @TheHammer,

The maintenance is still ongoing and unfortunately, our technical department has not provided us with any ETA yet.

Nonetheless, I can state for sure that it will be finished as soon as possible and there is ongoing work on this.

Warm regards!

Seven months later, and the “maintenance” is still going on. If not earlier, at this point it should be obvious to anyone in the EU, that this is not a service for us. I only regret not finding this thread soon enough. Save yourselves, there are lots of good alternatives out there.

Wirex: communicating this upfront should have saved you a lot of trouble; this is not a maintenance, no matter what you call it.

Hi Peter,

Indeed, the maintenance is still taking place and new accounts are currently affected - outcoming transfers are not available.

Please rest assured that you will receive a proper notification once bank transfers are available again for new accounts as well.

Best regards!

The exact same thing has happened to me, I put money in to my wirex account, changed my mind so I tried to withdraw it back to my bank account but it got declined :flushed: apparently I would receive an email about this but I’m still waiting :man_facepalming:t5: and that was over a month ago. I ordered and activated my wirex card thinking a transfer would be easier but I was wrong :man_facepalming:t5: it seems like once you put money in to your Wirex account, it’s going to stay there. By already ordering and activating your wirex card it means in the meantime whilst I’m waiting for maintenance :man_facepalming:t5: fees are going to eat at my balance as Im having difficulty canceling my card as you can only block it.

Dear Marlon, I feel how unpleasant this matter is for you and I am sorry for the inconvenience caused.

According to our records, this case is being processed by the ticket 1491797.
Unfortunately, our Support Agent hasn’t received any response from you.

I have just updated you via this ticket. Could you please check your mailbox now and let me know if the issue still persists?

Thank you in advance!

considering your ongoing “maintenance” is this affecting using a wirex card to pay for things? or is this unaffected?
I’m a new user and quite frankly, the fact you can’t resolve this issue is making me very uneasy!

Hi Sal,

The maintenance only affects the outcoming bank transfer functionality for new users.

I can state for sure that it does not affect card operations at all, they are working properly as expected.

Best regards!

ok thanks for confirming. so what’s going on with the bank transfers? why is it taking so long? Can you please get the answer from your tech dept if you don’t know.

You are most welcome, Sal!

Our technical team is still working on the possible solutions in order to have the outcoming bank transfers available for all our users. Unfortunately, I am not able to provide more information as such cases are not processed by the support team directly.

I am communicating with our technicians and our banking partner regarding this matter, and they explained to me that this issue is not a basic one. That’s why it taking so much time in order to resolve it.

We will also send a notification once it is resolved.

Warm regards.

Hello Kateryna,
I honestly think I was doing the whole transaction thing wrong :man_facepalming:t5: so basically I think it will work for me now thanks, unfortunately I didn’t have enough money on my card because I’ve used it to buy stuff from the shop but now I realise I was doing it wrong. Sorry for the previous complaint!!
