    1 Funds may be delayed or services unavailable based on certain transaction conditions, including amount sent, destination country, currency availability, regulatory issues, identification requirements, Agent location hours, differences in time zones, or selection of delayed options. For money transfers made by cell phone, the funds will be paid to the receiver’s mobile wallet account provider so they can then be credited to the account linked to the receiver’s cell phone number. Additional third-party charges may apply, including SMS, account over-limit and cash-out fees. See the transfer form to learn more about restrictions.

    2 Western Union also makes money from currency exchange. When choosing an intermediary money transfer company, carefully compare both transfer fees and exchange rates. Fees, exchange rates and taxes may vary by brand, channel and location, based on a number of factors. Fees and rates are subject to change without notice.
