Linxo’s customers can now make and manage money transfers through Western Union’s platform, 24/7.

“We are pleased to be joining forces with Linxo, offering the 3.5 million users of this innovative app access to the broadest digital global network coverage within the cross-border person-to-person payment sector,” said Massimiliano Alvisini, Head of Europe, CIS, and Africa Network at Western Union. “In France, and across the world, we partner with fintechs, banks and post offices, offering their customers flexibility and trust underpinned by technology, customer experience and compliance,” he said.

Established in 2010, Linxo is an account aggregation FinTech, that optimizes bank account and transaction management for its users. The Linxo application is available in both free and premium versions on the Apple App Store and on Google Play.

“By integrating the Western Union platform into our Linxo Marketplace, we are providing our users with a new and seamless customer experience thanks to enhanced functionalities for the management of their financial assets from a single space: consultation and management of accounts, sending or transferring money to their families and loved ones,” comments Bruno Van Haetsdaele, CEO and Co-Founder of Linxo Group. “Our ambition was to create a virtuous and open ecosystem. With the integration of the Western Union platform, this is now a reality. And we will continue to integrate new value-added services to provide our users with a quality service that exceeds their expectations within the Linxo application.”
