You can send or receive money globally in a easy and fast way with Western Union, let's get started now!
WU charges progressively more for cash pickup if the funds are sent directly from a US bank account and a debit card can also be used (usually speeding up the transfer) at no extra charge .
For example, the charge is &25 USD for a transfer of 500 USD and 50 dollars for a transfer of 1000 USD.
The fees are $39.50 and $77 USD if the transfer is paid with a credit card
However, if the sender pays in cash at a Western Union agency, the transfer fee is only $8 USD for either amount.
WU does not charge any fee for bank to bank transfers, but, as indicated on the online form when you are setting up the transfer, it could take up to eight days to receive the funds, though one member of the forum reported the funds arrived much sooner.
As far as I know, the bank to bank transfer is the only one without a fee.
I made a transfer last night and the rate was $160.86 (and still is this morninig).
I used my US debit card for the transfer of just under $500 USD and the fee was $10 USD.
I expect the funds to be credited to my Argentine bank account late this afternoon (before 6pm).
PS: You can go to the WU site any time to check the current exchange rate and the fees without having a WU account, but you will have to create one and log in to make a transfer.
