This is the Way the World Moves Money for Better
Western Union is a leader in global payment services. From small businesses and global corporations, to families near and far away, to NGOs in the most remote communities on Earth, Western Union helps people and businesses move money – to help grow economies and realize a better world. In 2015, we moved over $150 billion dollars for our consumer and business clients. We continue to innovate, developing new ways to send money through digital, mobile, and retail channels, with an array of convenient pay-out options to meet business and consumer needs.
We are a business centered on the needs of our customers, and over the years, we’ve invested and innovated to provide consumers and businesses with even more choices – in products, in services, and in how and where they can access Western Union when moving money across borders.
We move money for better, enabling individuals, families and friends to securely and seamlessly transfer money in the ways that are most convenient for them, whether that is walking into a retail location or using our Western Union website or app to move money in minutes.
Our customers use our services to send money to family members in nearly every part of the world, to provide support, recognize a special occasion, and enable entrepreneurship or education.

We offer a wide range of industry-specific solutions that today help over 100,000 clients including financial institutions, educational institutions, NGOs, and small/medium sized businesses needing to make cross-border payments.
