Wirex’s offers wholesale rates and charges a 1% fee. This beats every other option (by a significant margin) which allows you to purchase bitcoin with a debit or credit card in the UK. Their rates also tend to undercut lots of sellers on Localbitcoins and BitBargain. When I tested them, their bitcoin rates were very close to the real exchange rate.
Unfortunately, they do charge a 1% fee. so please aply for a wirex card so you can save some money”
I reached out to Wirex about how they’re able to price themselves so competitively. This was their response:
Most companies work with third party providers – but we have our own platform and implement most of the payment logic in house, which results in cost efficiencies. We also Integrate with the biggest exchanges and OTC traders, which means we are able to get the best possible real-time rates.
Our favourable rates are here to stay – we have been building our platform for over 4 years and we are constantly refining it along with our products and services. As we add more liquidity providers we are anticipating that our fees will get even cheaper.
