We make it easy at WeSwap.
Click on the sign up button found on any of our pages or download the app.
Follow the prompts to create your account. This should only take 2-3 minutes.
Usually, we verify your account automatically. You’ll get an email with a link to click and you’re good to go.
Once verified, we’ll send your WeSwap card out. It should arrive within 3-5 working days in the UK, or within 10 days if you live outside the UK. Your card will be in a plain envelope with no WeSwap branding – this is for security – so keep a lookout for it!
You don’t need to wait for your travel money card to start using your account. You can load and swap while you wait to put your card straight to use when it arrives.
If we’re unable to validate your account automatically, we will ask you to provide some documentation – but this is only required for a very small number of people.
