Western Union Adds Apple Pay Support for Money Transfers and Bills

Western Union will support Apple Pay at its stores and kiosks, the company announced on Tuesday. That means you’ll be able to send money to friends and family around the world with your iPhone, or just use it to pay your bills.

In total, Western Union says it offers 58,600 agent locations across the U.S. and Canada, including 7,600 kiosks setup at Walgreens and Duane Reade stores around the country. Globally, the company boasts a total of over 500,000 locations, potentially giving Apple Pay a quick route into other countries once it’s ready to expand.

For now, Apple Pay will only work at the company’s flagship store in New York City. However, it shouldn’t be too long before Western Union locations across the country are outfitted to support the mobile payment system. In the meantime, you can setup the app on your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus by scanning in a debit card.
