Asia Pacific By Karen Santos August 11, 2021

Customers in the Philippines can now direct an international or domestic Western Union money transfer into their UnionBank account by simply inputting Western Union’s unique money transfer control number (MTCN) and other identification details into the UnionBank app (available on iOS and Android).

Western Union and PERA HUB, a leading provider of financial services, have announced the integration of Western Union’s digital money transfer capabilities into the UnionBank banking platform, for the first time offering customers in the Philippines the choice to receive Western Union money transfers, 24/7, via a banking app.

Later this year the service will be expanded to enable customers to send money to their loved ones via the app, locally or worldwide, into billions of bank accounts and millions of mobile wallets and cards in approximately 125 countries, or more than half a million representative locations in more than 200 countries and territories. Senders can fund their money transfers through their UnionBank accounts.
