Western Union Announces Fees as Low as $10
for Money Transfers

Denver: Western Union Financial Services, Inc., a worldwide leader in money transfer services, has announced a major reduction in service fees, which will result in increased savings for customers sending money from agent locations in New York, New Jersey, Illinois, California, and Pennsylvania to the South Asian countries of India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bhutan and Maldives. Customers sending up to $500 will pay only a standard $10 service fee, with an additional $5 in fee added for each incremental $500 sent.
These new competitive fees, combined with Western Union’s world renowned speed, convenience and reliability reinforces Western Union’s commitment to offer more value to our customers. “With this new pricing reduction, Western Union adds yet another great service feature for our customers who send money home to loved ones in South Asia,” said Ruchika Kohli, assistant marketing manager for Western Union’s South Asian Region. “Western Union’s new pricing plan allows customers to send money more economically than before, while still receiving Western Union’s safe, reliable and fast service.”
The $10 fee was previously available for money transfers in Georgia, Texas, and Massachusetts but has now expanded to New York, New Jersey, Illinois, California, and Pennsylvania. Now, thanks to this new, lower price and competitive exchange rates, Western Union means even more value and savings for our customers, so their recipients get even more money for every dollar sent with Western Union.
