Western Union and Thunes expanding payout capabilities to mobile wallets

Western Union and Thunes expanding payout capabilities to mobile wallets

Western Union has teamed up with Thunes, a cross-border payments network for emerging markets, to enable Western Union customers to send funds directly into mobile wallets around the world.

Senders can now utilise Western Union’s growing digital network or an agent location to send funds directly into a recipient’s mobile wallet. 

“We are continuously expanding and enhancing our account payout portfolio, providing customers with multiple payout options including bank accounts, cards or mobile wallets,” said Sobia Rahman, Global Head of Account Payout Network for Western Union. “Our goal is to make digital money transfer services more accessible, with a specific focus on enabling mobile transactions.”

The collaboration will enable greater financial access for consumers - especially those who lack access to traditional financial services - by connecting them to alternative payment solutions, such as mobile wallets, that ultimately help drive better financial inclusion on a global scale

Steve Vickers, CEO at Thunes, said: “Our payments platform seamlessly interconnects payment providers globally and enables interoperability between diverse payment systems, and by utilising our vast network, Western Union customers will now have more flexibility when sending money across borders."
