Western Union services now available on the Kiple App

Regional News By Karen Santos Feb 3, 2022

Western Union and Kiplepay Sdn Bhd (Kiplepay), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Green Packet Berhad, recently announced the launch of Western Union money transfers on the Kiple e-wallet mobile application. Western Union is Kiple’s exclusive remittance partner, powering its cross-border money movement capabilities.

Kiple users can now conveniently send and receive money transfers with a few clicks. This partnership will be especially beneficial to businesses, who use Kiple to disburse employees’ salaries. This brings additional convenience for the employee, especially foreign workers, to receive their salary in their e-wallets and send money to their loved ones back home – all in one app.

Foreign students, who have chosen to further their studies in Malaysia, can also use the app to receive money for necessities from their families quickly and seamlessly. This enables students to focus on their education and have a better university experience, rather than being concerned about how and when they will receive much-needed funds.

Western Union’s exclusive money transfer service on the app helps drive Kiple’s strategy to accelerate cashless adoption in the country. With this launch, Kiple’s users now have a single app to manage their e-money, transfers, purchases and remittances with ease, without the need of a bank account. They will have access to all of Kiple’s offerings, which include the Kiple Visa Prepaid Card that can be used worldwide (and also for ATM withdrawals), Kiple’s referral programme and all ongoing promotions and perks.

Unbanked senders in Malaysia can also walk into any Western Union retail agent location and make a domestic money transfer to themselves in cash, which can be pulled into their Kiple App by simply inputting the unique Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN) and other necessary information. Kiple’s users can reload their e-wallet on the app using hard-earned money and seamlessly send money to their loved ones overseas.
