Transfer money with Western Union online
When you choose to transfer money online with Western Union you have the flexibility to send money for cash pickup at any Western Union location, directly to your receiver's bank account*, or to your receiver's mobile phone. *
After sending a Western Union money order, you can track the status of your order online by using a MTCN number, which is a unique number assigned to each money transfer.
The fees for online money transfers vary depending on the transfer method you select, the amount of money you are sending and the country you are sending it to. You can check how much the fee will be by using the Western Union’s price estimator on their website.
Quick and easy online money transfers
If your money is needed within minutes*, you can send money online using your credit or debit card. Receivers can then pick up the cash at any Western Union location worldwide (depending on the hours of operation at that location).
If your receiver lives in a country where Wester Union offers mobile money transfer, you can send money to their mobile phone in minutes*. Make sure your receiver has activated a mobile wallet* with one of our partner mobile operators in their country.
If you are planning on sending money directly to a bank account, your money is generally available to the receiver between 1 to 2 days, depending on which country the account is located.
