I’m here to give you straight answers to the questions that you’ve asked us in the last 24 hours. What is happening with Wire Card? Your prepaid cards is issued by Wire Card Card Solution Limited in the U.K. They are independent of wire cards, A.J. in Germany, which filed for insolvency on June 25th. The UK company is regulated in the UK by the Financial Conduct Authority known as the FCA. On Friday, the FCA issued a temporary freeze on the work, or the UK, with a stated objective to protect customer money, not to take it away from you.
We’re communicating directly with work and UK and the FCA who are working hard to lift the freeze as soon as possible when they lift the freeze. We’re already prepared everything so that your card will once again become active and your funds will be accessible for you.
Why could UK is working closely with the FCA to address their concerns so that the temporary freeze can be lifted as soon as possible. And your cards can continue to operate as before as the FCA impose this freeze not be on there. Payoneer unable to say with certainty how soon this will happen.
Payoneer highlighted to the FCA the urgency of the situation and trust that they understand the importance of lifting the freeze as soon as possible.
All your funds in your payoneer account are safe. You can continue receiving payments from marketplaces like Amazon, Urban Be Getty Images and Fiverr, as well as clients worldwide. This funds will be received to your payoneer account and from there you can withdraw them to a local bank account.
Further they said, payoneer highlight again. They are temporarily frozen, not lost. The FCA has placed a temporary freeze on all activities with the primary objective of protecting the money of customers using cards issued by Wire Card UK in line with the requirements of the UK regulator. Cardholder funds are held by Wire Card UK and safeguarded accounts.
Yes. Any funds on your virtual balance can be withdrawn to a bank account and related to wire card. Unfortunately, we experience a technical issue during Saturday that may have resulted in the inability to withdraw funds. This issue was resolved and you can withdraw your funds to your bank account as normal.
These events unfolded very rapidly. The FCA correctly intervened and follow their protocols to ensure wire card’s full compliance with relevant regulations. We have highlighted to the FCA the urgency of the situation so that your card is unfrozen as soon as possible. Like other banks and financial services using wire card card solutions, we depend on the FCA decision in this case, ASPEY. Does not hold the balance on your wide cards. Prepaid cards were not permitted to move any funds off the card.
Yes. You’re receiving accounts are unaffected and operating as normal. You can continue to use them to receive payments in euro and the funds will end payoneer account, as always. Are your payment services issued by wire card bank in Germany, which is not connected with a developing situation with you? The UK card company, we are communicating with the regulator in Germany, which is operating the bank business as usual. In parallel, we are working with Citibank to extend to you as soon as possible and the alternative you’re receiving account. We’re also coordinating with our marketplace partners to ensure you can switch it seamlessly. We will update you as soon as this is available.
we’re working on providing alternative solutions for your card and we’ll contact you as soon as this is ready. We’re working very closely with MasterCard in Europe to move your cards activity over to appear near issued card. We will contact you as soon as we have an alternative card option available to you.
Absolutely not. The prepaid card service is one of many services we provide, and the current solution does not in any way impact upon payoneer stability. Right now our customer is our top priority and we’re doing everything possible to ensure you can once again access your funds. In parallel, we acted quickly to ensure that you can continue getting paid and continue to enjoy your earnings to a local bank account as normal.
