With the best transaction fees, you are ready to go.

A few days back, one of my friends sent me an email asking me if it was possible for one to make a Western Union transaction using online services just like it happened to other money transfer service providers like PayPal and that if it was possible, how would one do that?

The question above prompted me to write this entire post other than only responding to my friend only as I thought that there might be many others who happen to ask themselves this very question, and below is how to send/transfer/pay money funds online through Western Union.

Note: Before you get started with making your Western Union Online transaction, you need to have a WU account which you can easily create for free by visiting their WU website, clicking on the registered account, and entering all the required information including the ones below.

How do you send/pay or transfer money
