Under the First Data Corporation Western Union company existed until 2006. Every Western Union Business Solutions' innovation is inspired by the customer perspective. Our multi-channel platform provides the widest choice of ways to make global payments. You can phone your designated dealer, fax us a payment instruction or order directly online. You choose. Western Union is a wire transfer service that allows you to quickly transfer money all over the globe. While it's not without risks, it is a reliable way to get money to friends and family almost anywhere in the world. Follow this guide to make sure your money gets to where it needs to go. The process is simple in that once the application form has been completed, Western Union will provide you with an instant quote for the cost of your fees in your local currency and this quotation is guaranteed for 72 hours.
