What is an Airwallex virtual card?

The Airwallex virtual card is a digital card that exists on your phone and computer. You can create new virtual cards in an instant and use them immediately. Each card will be linked to your Airwallex account and will come with unique card details. You can create unlimited virtual employee and company cards and use them to spend in multiple currencies from funds in your account. If you don’t have the right currency balance available, your virtual card will auto-convert at Airwallex’s market-leading exchange rates, and you won’t be charged any transaction fees when using your virtual card at home or abroad.
