Novatti Wirex, a crypto payments platform, has partnered with card issuer, Novatti, to directly issue cards to Australians. The announcement has the potential to allow over 20 million people to utilise their innovative multicurrency card every day.

The collaboration with Novatti will now enable Wirex to issue cards directly to users in Australia. Customers will benefit from higher card spend limits, ability to earn up to 8% instant rewards, with no FX or maintenance fees, international ATM withdrawals and fiat-to-fiat exchanges, affordable top-ups, and access to merchant exclusive deals. All users will be required to have full KYC checks with transactions and processes meeting stringent AML requirements.

Mark Healy, Executive General Manager Payments at Novatti, said, “Working with a leading payments provider like Wirex showcases Novatti’s expertise in card issuing and provides opportunities to co-create innovative solutions together. With interest in alternative payments on the rise in Australia, we are excited to partner with Wirex to make their ambitions a reality.”

Following considerable success across the UK and EEA, Wirex launched in APAC in 2019, which has since become their fastest-growing region. With one of the highest levels of crypto adoption in the world, Australia has become an important market for Wirex as they look to utilise Novatti to bridge the gap between the traditional and digital economies.

Svyatoslav Garal, Managing Director of APAC at Wirex, commented, “As we grow our operations in Australia, we’ve strategically chosen to partner with a trusted Australian headquartered company, Novatti, to issue cards. Being able to expand our product offerings will enable more users to continue taking advantage of the benefits of forward-thinking payments.”

Wirex developed the world’s first crypto-enabled debit card. Over 5 million customers worldwide can buy, hold, exchange and sell over 12 traditional and 130 cryptocurrencies, spendable at 80 million locations using Wirex’s Visa debit card. This includes the TAUD (True AUD) stablecoin, recently listed on the Wirex app as part of Wirex’s largest release of tokens in one go.
