EDITORIAL REVIEW

Western Union introduced the money transfer business in 1871. It has experience in the field of remittance for more than a century – the longest for a money transfer company. In 2012 it opened 500,000th agent location and it has more than 115,000 ATMs where consumers can send and receive money. Western Union has its presence in about 200 countries in the world. Considering its history and expansion, Western Union definitely belongs to the big league of money transfer companies.

The foreign exchange rate offered by Western Union Money Transfer is indicative exchange rate. There is no dearth of choice as far as speed of transfer and modes of sending and receiving money through Western Union Money Transfer are concerned. Western Union is one of the few companies that allow you to send money not only from your bank account but also via credit or debit cards. The money can be sent online, in person, or via phone. The speed of transfer varies from minutes to days. Unique feature of Western Union Money Transfer is its convenience of delivery of funds. The recipient can receive the money through various modes: directly to the bank account (any bank in NEFT network), cash-pick up from an agent location, or home delivery. There are more than 50,000 agent locations in India where receivers can pick up the money in form of cash.

Comparing the features of money transfer plans side by side, the "money in minutes" plan is the most appealing one. The cash pick-up available in minutes for the receiver is convenient. It may cost more and can amount to around $45 depending on whether the money is transferred online, in person, or by phone, with transfer by phone being the most expensive. This option may prove to be expensive but if there is a real emergency back home this service is a good choice to have.

There are some additional perks like no transfer fee if the money is transferred directly to the recipient’s bank account either from the sender’s bank account or via debit or credit cards. Western Union also offers a unique customer service where the customer service representatives speak different languages like Hindi, Gujarati, Punjabi, Malayalam, Urdu, Marathi, Tamil, Konkani, and English.

Summing it all up Western Union Money Transfer Services stand out among the remittance service providers because of the sheer number of options of sending and receiving money. Its massive network is impressive and its name has been synonymous with money transfer for quite some time in people’s minds. But what takes Western Union one step further is its phenomenal adjustment to the change in trends and accommodation of its services for the sake of convenience of its customers. Admittedly it might get a bit pricey depending on the type of service you choose, but Western Union is accessible, convenient, and dependable.

I am writing these words to help the community being aware and avoid the lost I had during this nightmare. I am giving here my personal experience story with this company (Remitly). Story started when I wanted to transfer funds to my suppliers in China and Morocco. I have done my research about new cost-effective solutions for transferring money quickly with an optimum exchange rate. After a Benchmark between many of them, Remitly cutches me by its good exchange rate spread and low transaction fee. The first transaction was done smoothly to a supplier in china which get his money same day on his Alipay account. My second transfer was made to a Moroccan supplier into his Moroccan bank (Attijari Wafabank). Transfer was made on the 5th of August 2020, Funds was supposed to be received by my supplier on the 12 August. Today is 24th and no funds was received. The supplier is someone who I have relationship with for decades, I know him very well. The amount is not to high (1400$) but still it is money. The problem is that the company have a ridiculous policy in the case funds are not received. They asked me to ask the supplier (receiver) to provide his bank statement which is ridiculous. No company will accept that. Bank statement has confidential information and even me I will refuse to provide it to my customers to prove that funds are received. So, I keep trying to explain that and the only cold answer from the customer service was sorry we can do nothing. For my supplier to track the transfer his bank asked the transaction swift code (which is a conventional way to track transaction for banks). Guess what, Remitly don’t have it even if they withdraw the funds from my Wells fargo bank and transfer it to an international bank. They keep giving me some Transaction ID which can’t be accepted by my supplier’s bank. I asked them to contact the Moroccan bank and ask for a prove that funds has been deposited into my supplier account so I can show it to him: they say no. I asked them to forward the email they told me they received from the receiver bank confirming that funds has been deposit: answer is NO. Any request I made answer was NO. They said sorry we can’t help. Basta your money is lost, and we can’t do nothing. It is a frustrating situation when you are powerless and all you have is chatting or call center in Asia answering like a machine repeating each time same words with no compassion neither human understanding of the situation. Bottom line: this is a company that want to make profit based on transaction fees and exchange rate spread with no customer service to provide neither guarantee that your fund will reach destination. Till today have no clue what to do !!!

she gave it to them then they said “the money is not arrived yet as soon as the money arrive we will give you call please leave your phone number” and she gave them the phone number and waited ten days to call her back but they don’t. Today she went and asked what’s going on they told her it’s been returned. So I went to the western union in Gravesend Kent to ask what happen and they told me it’s been collected on the next day of I put my money in.
