Google Pay added a new integration with Western Union and Wise App and allows users to select their preferred service provider. “By the end of the year, we expect US Google Pay users to be able to send money to people in more than 200 countries and territories through Western Union and Wise, and to more than 80 countries through Wise,” said Viola Gauci, product manager , Google Pay in the official Google blog post.
To sweeten the news, Google said that Western Union will be offering unlimited free transfers until June 16 when sending money with Google Pay, and Wise will be making the first transfer for new customers for free with transfers up to $ 500.
“To send money internationally, first find the Google Pay user you want to send money to, tap” Pay “and select either Western Union or Wise. From there, just follow the steps to complete the payment, ”he added.
One of the reasons for enabling this service, according to Google, is that “sending money back to home countries is a regular activity and we’re making it more accessible by adding it to the app”.
