Since we opened our doors to our first customers in July you may have noticed that we’ve been keeping our hands busy and our mouths shut, blog wise. Instead we’ve been beavering away on a whole host of updates to make WeSwap slicker, speedier and more useful to our travellers. Here’s what we’ve been getting up to:
You asked, we listened – You can now load money straight into your WeSwap account using your debit card, without having to go to your online bank to make a transfer. Simply enter your debit card details along with the amount you want to load and, hey presto, your account is instantly loaded with your money, ready to swap and spend. Even better, once you’ve loaded the first time you can save your debit card to use again for following loads, so you don’t have to re-enter your details all over again.
The first release of our app is available to download now on both iOS and Android. At the moment you can log in to view your WeSwap account balance across all currencies and check your transaction history. We’ve got rather exciting plans for future releases of this, so watch this space…
We’ve translated our whole site into Spanish, French and Italian, with Swedish, Danish and Norwegian on their way very soon. So if you’ve ever wondered how to say “swap” in 6 different languages, now’s your chance. You can find the language picker on the top right of the homepage.
Plus a bunch of other small-but-cool improvements: in your swap summary you can now see the country of the person you’ve swapped with, our new and improved FAQs make finding answers to your questions a breeze and we’ve also made it even easier to invite your friends and save money – you can find the link to invite friends on your dashboard.
We’re also thrilled to have been selected to take part in the STARTglobal programme at the Dublin Web Summit – a collection of 150 of the most disruptive and highest potential young companies to exchange ideas and demonstrate new technologies. Come and see us this week at Stand #264!
If you’ve got any feedback on any of our updates we’d love to hear it; please drop us a line at [email protected] And we’ve got a ton of other exciting features in the works to save you even more time & money – be sure to check back to find out what we have planned.
WeSwap is the world’s first person-to-person currency exchange for travellers. By matching people up who are travelling in different directions, we allow holidaymakers, expats and business travellers around the world to swap their different currencies without using banks or expensive retail outlets. It’s cheaper, more transparent and we’d like to think it makes people happier too. Sign up today to save on your travel money.
