Western Union has signed a new international money transfer deal with BP Australia to enable customers to conduct international money transfers 24/7 quickly and conveniently.
Western Union said that the services will be enabled through the mobile app in 302 BP stores across Australia, including through 150 stores with digital kiosks.
Recently, Western Union launched a next-generation Western Union app (wu.com.au) that gives senders the option of using card, bank account or cash to fund their transactions. Recipients can also receive funds in cash, bank account or wallet.
Western Union general manager for Asia Pacific Molly Shea said: “The ability to innovate and expand our self-service money transfer offering across retail and digital channels is key to Western Union’s success. We are very pleased to announce this collaboration with BP in Australia, which will provide customers with a new way to send funds any time they want, to countries around the world.”
BP Australia vice president of sales and marketing Brooke Miller added: “This new agreement with Western Union will enable customers to transfer money locally and internationally when it best suits them. In today’s world, convenience is key and providing our customers with offers that make their lives easier is at the heart of what we do.”
