We live in a globalized and increasingly connected world. The Internet and the cloud have made our lives much easier in every aspect, and when it comes to send money abroad it would be no different.
International transfers used to be a headache for people. The processes of the banks, the only ones to perform this type of operation in the past, usually took days (if not weeks) and also charged high fees that were not always clear to the sender.
Today, this process has completely changed thanks to apps such as Western Union. With Western Union Canada, you can send money to over 200 countries and territories quickly and reliably. Want to know more? Keep reading!
How does Western Union Canada work?
Western Union has been around for over a century and, from the beginning, our goal has been to connect people around the world. In 1861, it was the first time we achieved this by using a telegraph line to complete the first transcontinental call in history.
Now, our goal is to bridge the distance between people by allowing money to move freely between countries. Our international money transfer app allows you to send money to over 200 countries and territories without having to deal with the bureaucracy that these transactions previously required.
All you need to do to send money abroad is download the app to your smartphone, register and simulate your transaction. The app will clearly tell you the exchange rate and all applicable transfer fees 1, so you know in advance how much your transaction will cost.
You will also be able to pay for it as you prefer (by cash or credit 2/debit card) and choose how the recipient will receive the money (pick up cash in a store or directly at their bank account). All to make your life easier now.
