The idea behind Western Union is a standard principle of moving a specified amount of cash money from one location to another. As mentioned, this can be done via one of the many Western Union outlets, which exist within banks, post offices and other financial institutions, or via the online website. Doing it by one of the outlets requires you to have the cash in hand that you’d like to transfer. If you need to know where your nearest outlet is, you can input your postcode on the company website, which will provide you with a list of them. If you wish to do the payment process online, you need to visit the website and begin the process there.
In both of these instances, you will need details of the person or entity that you are sending the funds to. Sometimes, an online casino will provide these details via their website, which is usually the name of a specific person or company, as well as an address and identification number. If money is being sent to a specific person, some form of identification will be needed by them in order to pick up the money. To use the online service, you need to have signed up for an account, and after doing so, you will be required to enter the country that the funds will be sent to, as well as the amount of funds being sent. Further details will be required, such as the receiver’s first, middle (if applicable) and last name. The receiver’s email address can also be added, as can a phone number for them. The purpose of the transaction and the source of the funds will need to be input as well.
If, instead, you decide to use the in-store service, you need to take the cash along with you and provide the same details to the Western Union agent. They will fill out a form for you, which will act as your receipt for the transaction. After you have handed the money over to the agent, it will effectively be able to be picked up at the other end instantly. This is the same outcome for the online transfer as well.
An online casino probably won’t send a representative to pick up Western Union funds every single day. More so, it will no doubt take place once or twice a week. So, depending upon when you send along the funds, this will determine how soon they’ll be able to be used on your favourite games. You should also be able to keep a track of your sent money via the website, so you’ll know when it’s been collected at the other end.
