WeSwap is a peer-to-peer currency exchange platform that helps matches travellers heading in opposite directions and swaps their travel money directly, without use a bank exchange.
Was launched in London in 2013 by Jared Jesner and Simon Sacerdoti and currently supports 18 different currencies around the world! You can use WeSwap with a mobile application that allows you to swap different types of currency with others.
WeSwap simply swaps your currency directly with other travellers.
Here’s a step by step guide to how the process works:
- Load: Each customer gets a WeSwap Mastercard.
- Swap: You then select which currency you need. WeSwap takes care of then swapping the money with other travellers.
- Spend: Once this has been done, your card will now have some new currency on it. The card is then ready to use worldwide wherever MasterCard is accepted.
