Will I need a bank account?
At Money Services, we understand not everyone has a bank account – that’s why we’ve made it easy for you send money in cash. Depending on your receiver’s needs, they can pick up the cash or you can send it directly to their bank account.
If your receiver doesn’t have a bank account, you can send money for them to pick up at their nearest Money Services or a Western Union® agent location. Just make sure they bring along the tracking number (MTCN) and a form of ID.
We work with Western Union®, who can help you transfer money to over 200 countries. With 500,000 agent locations around the world, there might be one nearby your receiver.
