Western Union has collaborated with Linxo, a budget management and bank account aggregation application in France, to enable users to make local and cross-border payments through Western Union’s platform. 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.
