How does the Western Union app work?

The purpose of the Western Union app is to provide a convenient way of making international transfers.  With it, you can make an entire money transfer without leaving your home, as everything is already available in the palm of your hand. So, if you need to send money to a family member or friend who lives or is spending time abroad, take advantage of our services.

To start the transfer process, download our app and register with your information (which is requested only in the first time). Then choose the country to which the money will be sent and check the transfer fees and exchange rates. After that, add the Canadian dollar amount, the total amount, already converted into the currency of the destination country and according to the day’s rate, will appear on the side.

In the next step, you need to select how you want to pay your transfer and how the recipient would like to receive the money abroad. Finally, pay the international money transfer amount plus transfer fees1; then, write down the money transfer identification number (MTCN) and send it to the recipient. It is with this information that you will monitor the transfer in real time.

Done! In just a few steps you have already made the money transfer.
