Western UnionWalmart and Western Union announced a new agreement that will, for the first time, enable Western Union money transfer services at Walmart locations across the U.S. This is expected to bring greater choice and value to millions of customers. The services will include domestic and international money transfers, bill payments and money orders. Services will be offered at more than 4,700 Walmart stores with a rollout planned to begin in the spring of 2021.

Through Western Union’s global cross-border, cross-currency platform reaching 200 countries and territories worldwide, Walmart customers will have the ability to move money almost anywhere across the world. Customers will have the option of their money transfers being paid out in minutes across over 550,000 retail locations or into billions of bank accounts, wallets or cards. With the addition of Western Union, Walmart customers will be presented with more choice, convenience and access.

“Walmart is much more than a place where customers shop. To millions, it’s also a place they trust for their financial needs as well,” Wilbert Noronha, vice president of financial services at Walmart, said. “We’re thrilled to soon begin offering Western Union money transfer services at Walmart locations nationwide and, together, continue connecting family and friends worldwide through Western Union’s global money movement platform.”

Jean Claude Farah, president, global network at Western Union, said, “We are excited to work together with the world’s largest retailer, Walmart, and bring the best of our money movement and payments service capabilities to even more customers in the U.S. and worldwide.”

Farah added, “Together with Walmart, we have a shared purpose of supporting our customers who rely on us to send money to make everyday purchases including essentials like health care and groceries. In an age when speed, security, convenience and trust mean everything, we are offering customers greater ease, reliability, access and confidence with every transaction.”

For more than 20 years, Walmart has worked to provide the financial services their customers need through the providers they want, all at transparent prices. Since 2014, Walmart is said to have saved customers more than $1.5 billion across its marketplace financial services offerings. The collaboration between Walmart and Western Union continues the two companies’ long-standing commitment to provide value and further financial inclusion for customers.
