What Is Western Union?

Western Union is a money transfer service that can be used at live locations, online or by phone. It's a convenient (and somewhat expensive) way of transferring money.

Western Union's (also known as "WU") popularity among poker sites has gone up and down lately, but for US-based players it provides one of the few ways to safely transfer money to and from a poker site.

Western Union is a major business, with over 500,000 agent locations in more than 200 countries. (For soccer fans; they're in a partnership with the UEFA.)
