Western Union Launches Digital Money Transfers For Europe

By Dex Tennyson, for ExpatBriefing.com 15 September, 2014

Expats living in Austria, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, or the UK are now able to use their bank accounts online to fund Western Union money transfers.

Western Union said that it had integrated with online banking portals so that senders can direct payment into a receiver's bank account in certain countries, or arrange for a cash payout at more than 500,000 retail agent locations worldwide.

Khalid Fellahi, who is senior vice president and general manager at Western Union Digital, said: "Providing bank account-based funding options expands our relevance to a wider customer set and makes WU.com a compelling choice for banked customers worldwide."

Bank account funding for online and mobile money transfers at WU.com was developed in conjunction with Sofort AG for services in Austria, Germany, Belgium, and the United Kingdom, and with iDeal for services in the Netherlands.
