Sending to a mobile wallet is simple
When you’re sending money online, you can choose how you want to pay: by bank transfer, credit or debit card.
A mobile wallet is an electronic account that’s linked to a person’s mobile phone. Money can be electronically deposited and used in the same way as cash. Mobile wallets are used to pay for goods, public transportation and utilities, as well as for paying bills and withdrawing cash.
Mobile money transfers can only be sent to mobile phones that belong to mobile phone operators that work with Western Union.
Make sure your receiver has activated a mobile wallet with one of our partner mobile phone operators in their country.
