How Much Does It Cost to Send Money with Western Union?

Western Union offers a global money transfer service, and there are three ways you can send money: in person, online or by phone.

With Western Union, one can send money online 24/7, and the recipient can collect the money as cash at any Western Union agent location worldwide. In certain countries, however, the money can either be received in a mobile wallet or deposited into a bank account.

To perform an international transfer of money, the sender has to visit a Western Union location.

The offices are available in over 185 different countries with more than 400,000 locations to choose from around the globe.
