Two billion people are projected to be on messaging apps by 2018. That’s right: over a quarter of the world’s population.
Chat apps are already used by 75% of all smartphone users and continue to be one of the fastest growing digital services in the world.
To stand out in this competitive space, messaging apps are now offering a suite of new services for their users. Viber, a leading chat app with over 711 million users in over 190 countries, is no different. With the help of Western Union, Viber is making sending money as easy as saying “hello!”.
For a transfer fee* of $0, you can send up to $750 to a U.S. bank account, or $2.99 fee* to send up to $750 directly to a bank account internationally.
You can even send up to $100 to an international agent location for cash pick up for a $3.99 fee*.
Viber and Western Union are offering an easy, convenient way to send money transfers through your chat screen.
Then follow these simple steps to send money directly from a chat. Your recipient can collect their money by visiting one of the more than 500,000 Western Union® agent locations in over 200 countries and territories, or the funds can be deposited directly into their bank account in more than 50 countries.
