#sponsored. I love that I can sit at home and call from my own phone setting up the entire transaction before taking one step out the door. No long lines to wait in. Haven't tried the app yet. Yet.

Western Union - what a complete waste of time and effort..

Review published ago

Tried to send £40 by a Visa verified debit card from the UK to PH twice, and both times WU cancelling the transaction, with no reason given. Tried with WorldRemit, and the transactions went through in 2 mins, and were picked up in PH a few hours later. Western Union; what a complete waste of time and effort..

Don't spend money and time!

Review published ago

They have the worst customer service.For $100 they flagged the money that I send and I spend days to try to get them to allow my sister to receive the money. The only solution they had was for me to pay again and then get a refund which was going to take days because I couldn't go to an actual store. They are just ridiculous. Don't spend your money or time with this service.

I have enjoyed using W/U as my money transfer source for many years now. Whenever the format changes online it takes a few minutes to become adjusted to it but everything turns out fine by me. Thank you W/U for great service.

Sending money to Mexico is very easy and simple it's actually cheaper to send money to Mexico than it is to send to somebody in another state or even the same state

Sending money is a breeze

Western Union has made sending money to Mexico a breeze! I no longer have to go to a WU location but can send money from my cellphone. This has made making transactions seamless. Thanks!

Ne recommande pas, service clients totalement incompétent, ne répond jamais aux messages malgré mes nombreuses demandes.

Intrusive, very low exchange rates and high fees! I pay over 10% extra compare to others!

Review published ago

Used Western Union for years, but their services are not local to me so I have a costly bus ride or a several hour bike ride to my nearest WU agent. Recently, it has become far more invasive on my privacy. They can interrogate you as to the exact manor that I earned the money (general wages) and the exact reason I send it (support my wife) and recently they require me to bring my passport every single time I send any amount, small or large. It makes me paranoid that I someday loose my passport. Just require it the once then get the agent to mark that he saw my ID so I do not need it every single time! After WU became less and less convenient and more invasive, I tried to set up my online WU account again, but it is near enough impossible as there are just so much documents, proving your address, email, contact numbers. I had enough after a few hours of trying to find it could take weeks but it failed before when I submitted my Passport and they said it had not proof of address about 4 years ago. I had enough of WU so I Googled for alternatives and found a company called HI-FX. It allowed me to easily set up and transfer in mere minutes. It does not charge any fees unlike WU and offers a far better exchange rate than WU. For the same amount of money that I send through HI-FX, the receiver gains over 10% extra compared to WU!!! That is a lot that WU pockets from us through fees and poor rates! I would rate WU 1 star but as it is a working service that offers better rates than banks do, I will give it 2 stars. I do not recommend WU to anyone that has an bank account as there are many better services out there that gives you a more more cost effective means of doing the same job!

Horrendous Services

Review published ago

Horrendous Services. On one side they took my money from my account and cancel the transfer and on another transfer the opposite they sent the money and my bank failed to settle. After a month a half of back and forth with WU still not 100% resolved. Incompetente service using bank transfer. If you go to one of their redistributors and pay cash. This has work fine. but bank transfer forget it
