The Wealthsimple Cash card is a prepaid Mastercard that allows you to spend funds directly from your spending (Cash) account. The Wealthsimple Cash card uses the Mastercard payments system, so you can use your card anywhere that accepts Mastercard.
Fees for using the Wealthsimple Cash card
Wealthsimple does not charge any fees for using the Wealthsimple Cash card. However, the following might be charged by a third party if you take the corresponding action with your Wealthsimple Cash card:
- Currency conversion rate: The payment network will determine the applicable conversion rate from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable processing date, which may vary from the rate the payment network itself receives.
- ATM withdrawal fee: You will see a standard ATM withdrawal fee (usually about $3.00) when you make a withdrawal at an ATM.
You can review your cardholder agreements on the Wealthsimple Cash app, by tapping onto the Profile icon at the top-right corner, then Settings, and press on Agreements.
In order to use your Wealthsimple Cash card, you must first fund your account. You will then have a spending balance that will be visible to you at the top center of your Wealthsimple Cash app home page screen.

Tap limits vary and are determined by the merchant. Limits are subject to change.
Refunds are processed by merchants (not by Wealthsimple). Once the merchant has confirmed they have issued a refund, it will usually appear in your spending (Cash) account within 5-7 business days.
As we are not able to see the refund status on our end, we are unable to provide an update on the status of a pending refund. However, as soon as we receive funds for a refund, they are immediately available in your account.
