Western Union is easy to use and I can send money from my phone using my ATM card. My one complaint is that Western Union in the Philippines charges a fee to exchange dollars to pesos. This fee is not disclosed by Western Union.

Exchage rate not competitive.

Review published ago

Is a secure place to transfer money, insured and fast but: The exchange rates are very, very bad. Not competitive with others and rates are not as market rates, so as you know, you will receive a lot less that what tour money with and on top of that they charge you fees for transaction. A little too much for a regular family to send money. Is too many places and company out doing the same and with much more competitive exchange rates and almost no fees. WU please stay real and stay competitive in a flat world, you loosing many customers due to exchange rate. Hope you listen and we will return to you.

Western vs Paypal Brasilien

Review published ago

Meine Erfahrungen mit Western Union sind gemischt. Ich überweise ab und zu Geld nach Brasilien. Früher mit Paypal, aber die hohen Gebühren und der schlechte Wechselkurs bei Paypal haben mich zu Western Union getrieben. Beispiel: 200 Schweizer Franken. Bei Paypal verliere ich zwischen 12 bis 15% bei Western Union zwischen 8 bis 10%. Bei Western Union ist der Wechselkurs besser und die Gebühren sind tiefer als bei Paypal. Auch besser ist dass das Geld direkt als Cash verfügbar ist. Bei Paypal dauert es manchmal bis zu 7 Tage. Was probleme verursachen kann ist das man den Namen sehr genau schreiben muss. Das ist bei Brasilianer manchmal ein Problem. Ich muss zum Beispiel den Mutternamen beim Vaternamen eingeben das es klappt. Das ist leider ein Fehler in der App. Sie sollten nicht nach Mutter und Väternamen fragen, sondern so wie es im Reisepass steht. Ich musste deswegen dem Kundendienst telefonieren. Es hat dann geklappt. Der Kunden dienst ( ein Herr aus Ägypten )war sehr nett und konnte es ändern. Dauer 10 Minuten. Bei einem anderen Transfer war der Kundendienst unhöflich und konnte das Problem nicht lösen. Fazit: Aufpassen und korrekt den Namen eintragen!

Vertrouwen beschadigd!

Review published ago

Helemaal getraumatiseerd. Meerdere malen contact op genomen tijdens mijn reis in het buitenland. Wegens een systeem storing geen geld kunnen ophalen, twee maal verzonden uit begrip. Nu ben ik beide bedragen kwijt. 6 telefoontjes verder. Ruim 21 dagen afwachten om te kijken wat er mis is gegaan. Zal me niks verbazen als ik nog een paar maanden zelf achteraan moet om het geld in me handen te ontvangen.

No protection, no empathy

Review published ago

When my Western Union and Remitly accounts were hacked I got no help from Western Union (vastly different story from Remitly). They also claimed that I was complicit and sent me a collection notice. I had to get law enforcement involved. There is no protection nor customer empathy from this company.

Warning: be very careful with using western Union. It was written the transfer takes few minutes. Now it is more the 2 days! And WU does not want to give me my money back. More than 1000 euros! Western Union stolen my money.
