  • Choose how the receiver will receive the funds.

  • Select the appropriate transfer option.

  • Give the fee* and amount to be sent to the store associate either as cash or using a bank-issued debit card from the US.

  • Tell the receiver the 10-digit Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN) and the amount so they can pick up the cash – they’ll also need a photo ID.

The Mexican Peso was based on Spain’s official currency, the silver dollar and still uses the symbol $ today. It is one of the oldest currencies in North America. Mexico carried on using the peso as its official currency after winning independence from Spain in 1821. As late as 1850, the peso was used as currency in the United States, and was legal tender in both the US and Canada.

*Western Union also makes money from currency exchange.  When choosing a money transmitter, carefully compare both transfer fees and exchange rates.  Fees and foreign exchange rates may vary by brand, channel, and location based on a number of factors. Fees and rates subject to change without notice.
