WeSwap brings the principles of person to person finance to the world of currency exchange. WeSwap was founded to address the lack of transparency and fairness in the rates and charges afflicting people when obtaining foreign currency. Convinced that there was room to improve matters, the founders of WeSwap applied the spirit of social media and community mindedness to the problem and came up with a solution that helps everyone. People travelling in different directions can now use the WeSwap platform to swap money with each other, resulting in greatly reduced costs and a much friendlier experience. WeSwap is excited to be bringing this new solution to the marketplace, and looks forward to making swapping currency a truly worldwide phenomenon.
