Western Union’s money-movement functionalities have been integrated with ecoPayz’ platform, enabling all ecoAccount online wallet holders to make Western Union international and domestic remittances from the UK.
All ecoPayz products are offered by global payment services provider PSI-Pay.
The integration enables ecoPayz customers to top up funds from Western Union website and app as well as through Western Union’s retail agent network.
They will also be able to send funds from their ecoAccounts to any bank account across 150 countries and territories.
Western Union Global Money Transfer president Odilon Almeida said: “Western Union is integrating our core business functionalities with third parties and their platforms to unlock new growth.
“Our scale and omni-channel money transfer capability make it easy to integrate digital or cash money movement in today’s evolving digital financial ecosystem, allowing a greater universe of customers to be included, regardless of their digital or cash preferences.”
Western Union also plans to extend its services to ecoPayz’ mobile app and enable the international community to send money globally.
PSI-Pay operations director Jonathan Amrani said: “We are excited to be collaborating with Western Union and introducing additional services to customers that will enable them to have more flexibility within their ecoAccount.
“By accessing Western Union’s network, customers have access to hundreds of thousands of locations around the world, and this provides us with an excellent platform to grow and reach new customers.”
