Walmart and Western Union have announced that customers can now transfer funds to close ones from nearly 4,700 stores across the US or to over 200 countries and territories.

We know we have a role to play in customers’ lives that goes beyond being a place where they shop for their weekly groceries. Being able to send much-needed funds to a loved one, especially after a year like we’ve had, is more important than ever. We’re proud to extend our commitment to providing choice and value by offering Western Union services to our customers

In January, the companies announced an agreement that will make financial services more accessible for Walmart customers.

Customers will have the option to have their money transfers paid out in minutes across more than 550,000 retail locations or into billions of bank accounts, wallets, or cards worldwide.

According to the press release, Americans rely on Walmart’s Every Day Low Price strategy to help them conduct essential financial activities through a marketplace offering. From now on, Walmart customers will have more choice, convenience and access than ever before.
