Default Wise offer Debit card in Canada

Wise can now offer a linked Debit card with over 80 currencies. Great for us Brits with sterling accounts that require CAD and USD

Got an email about it. Interesting as I've been paying off a loan from a british bank account and have been depositing money via Wise. Would be probably one step simpler to just do it all in one place and update the direct debit details for the loan

Hi, if I have £ in an account in the UK would I be able to use it to withdraw CAD from my Ottawa bank? Are the exchange rates reasonable? Is there a limit to how much you can withdraw each week/month?
Thanks,

Thanks,
Wise Card explains how to use it. Load cash in the Wise app. When you pay with the card, always choose to pay in the local currency. I load my card with CAD from my UK bank account, then spend using the card in Canada. I have a USD account set up on the Wise app, so I can upload GBP or CAD into my USD account and spend in USD when in the States. It makes international travel so much easier.

anyone been able to order a card yet? I've got an account - was set up in Britain, now in Canada - I go to order a card and first step is to enter delivery address, no option to select Canada.

You will probably need to either contact their customer service and update your 'address details' to your Canada address, or open an account in Canada to get one delivered here - if you registered a UK account they will send the card to a UK address.

Can you send my card to an overseas address?
Sorry, we don't ship overseas right now. Currently, we only ship to address provided by you at the time of card sign-up. If you'd like to update your card mailing address, please get in touch with our support team.

If the address on your account isn’t correct.

If you’ve moved and would like to change your account address, you can do it in the app or on the website, but you might have to submit a document. Here’s how we verify your address.

Thanks - the odd thing is I can select pretty much any country in Europe and most of the Caribbean islands to get the card delivered to, none of which I have ever visited let alone lived in!
