When we bring the physical world to the digital world, we pave the way for a better tomorrow today. That’s why Facebook and Western Union have teamed up to revolutionize the way people send money across the globe, where money transfer is made even simpler and you can send while you scroll.
Now you can send money straight from Facebook Messenger to more than 200 countries and Territories in over 130 currencies – here is how it works. Let’s say Patricia’s on her phone in Chicago and she gets a Facebook message from her friend Grace in the Philippines who is getting married and Patricia wants to send her a gift right from Facebook Messenger.
First, Patricia would search for Western Union in the Facebook Messenger app, then she’ll start a conversation with the Western Union bot by simply selecting get started. From there, she simply selects send money and she can even see exchange rates in real time. She can transfer money to a bank account or for cash pickup at 500,000 locations worldwide, and she can do it all from her debit or credit card or even straight from her bank account plus once it’s sent Patricia can track it all with a simple tap. All she has to do is type in her tracking number and she’ll see when it’s available and Patricia can even help Grace find the nearest agent location and share it with her.
All you have to do is select location, then search for a city she’s looking for, and then she’ll see a list of results which she can choose from. Just like that western union and facebook messenger have made money transfer even simpler. Moving money just got better.
