September 14, 2017, 2:27 pm

Western Union, a leader in global money transfer and payments services, in association with Aman Exchange in Kuwait, has announced the launch of the transactional website in Kuwait, increasing money transfer options, giving customers the choice of a Western Union digital channel and the convenience of sending money any time, any day of the week.

To utilize services, customers can pay using any debit card issued in Kuwait. The site will then generate a code for the receiver to collect cash in more than 200 countries and territories1.

Hatem Sleiman, Regional Vice President, Middle East, Pakistan and Afghanistan, Western Union said, “With over two million internet users, Kuwait is a highly digitized nation. Our new online platform will not only support market growth, but also give customers additional choice and convenience to send money around the world. We believe that when money moves, good things happen. Our passion for people and innovation continues to grow.”

In line with Central Bank of Kuwait regulations, customers are required to register on prior to the first use of the online service, as well as to register in-person with their national ID at one of the 13 Aman Exchange locations. Once registered, Western Union® My WUSM global loyalty program members can receive and redeem points online using their current membership number, while those wishing to enroll in the program can do so online as well.

Adel Al Muzaini, General Manager of Aman Exchange added, “We are very pleased to collaborate with Western Union for this digital offering in Kuwait. This new channel will help further our mission to provide customers in Kuwait the advantage of transferring money 24x7 without the necessity to look for open locations. With the assurance of reliable transfers, this will make sending  money a pleasant experience.”
