Essential app for anyone who travels or interested in holding $ £ €

The ease of managing forex using the Shyft app and physical card makes it ideal for converting ZAR to $ or € and then spending online or withdrawing cash at ATM abroad. I have not had any issues with the registration, money management features or physical card.
