    1 Funds may be delayed or services unavailable based on certain transaction conditions, including the amount sent, the destination country, currency availability, regulatory issues, identification requirements, agent location hours, differences in time zones, or the selection of delayed delivery options. For money transfers made by cell phone, the funds will be paid to the receiver’s mobile wallet account provider so they can then be credited to the account linked to the receiver’s cell phone number. Additional third-party charges may apply, including SMS, account over-limit and cash-out fees. See the transfer form to learn more about restrictions.
