FAQ What is Wads?

Wads is an exchange service and browser extension that lets people shop their favorite online stores with cryptocurrency.

How does Wads work?

Wads uses what is known as a virtual credit card. When you are ready to checkout, simply click on our extension icon and exchange your cryptocurrency for one of our cards. These virtual credit cards work just like any other card and can be redeemed anywhere credit cards are accepted.

When will I be able to download the Wads Extension?

We plan to launch our extension Spring 2019. Register today to be notified when we launch.

What is a Virtual Credit Card?

A virtual credit card (VCC) is very similar to a normal credit card, except that they are not physically issued by the credit card provider. These online cards are single use and can only be redeemed for a certain amount of money within a specified length of time. When one of our users is ready to checkout, they can exchange their cryptocurrency for a virtual credit card in the exact amount of their order. This card can then be used just like a normal credit card and we provide the card information necessary to make the purchase – such as the card number, expiration date, name, and the card’s security code.

What cryptocurrencies are supported?

When we launch, we will only support payments made in Ethereum. However, we plan on offering additional support for other cryptocurrencies in the future.

What if I have a problem with my order?

If you have a problem with your order you will be able to send us a support ticket directly through our extension or you can contact us by phone.

Can I get a refund?

Yes! Wads will offer a chargeback/refund service directly through our extension. Refunds will be issued in the cryptocurrency used to make the purchase but made in the exact USD amount of the order.

How do I contact support?

You can contact us by email at: admin@wads.io. However, when we launch we will provide an in-app ticketed support system as wll as a contact phone number.
