Bank account

Receiving money into your bank account:
You can ask your sender to transfer the money directly to your bank account in Argentina. The sender must enter your bank account details (bank name, CBU number and CUIL) when sending the money. You will need to complete a one-time registration process within 90 days of receiving the funds. To complete your registration, we will contact you by email within 24 hours of the transfer at the email provided by your sender.

Switch from cash pickup to bank account:
If your sender has already sent you the money but did not share your bank account details, you can also ask for the money to be deposited into your bank account by sending an email to depositoacuenta@wu.com indicating your full name, tracking number (MTCN), and your government-issued ID number.

If it is your first time receiving money this way, you will need to complete a one-time registration by visiting: www.pagofacil.com.ar/dtb.

Want to know when you’ll receive your money?

Track your transfer using your tracking number (MTCN). You’ll know instantly if the money is on its way or if it’s already available for pickup.
