Hi

Does any of you over here use Western Union?

If yes, can you help in letting us know how good it is as a payment processing system?

I have used Western Union in the past.
I think its largest drawback is that it is
relatively expensive in comparison to
other methods of getting paid. Besides this, it works
well and is available in most countries For an online business
some clients may find it a bit cumbersome as you have to
find a Western Union outlet near you to use
when you want to send or receive money.

Not a very good system as it is the most expensive gateway to transfer money to a foreign country.

Not so convenient too as both party will need to go to the bank.

Western Union is the most expensive option I've seen. Moreover, is very insecure.

Since Western Union is the most Expensive of All the options, but Its availability in different countries make it a step ahead from other processors. But it can be a little bit insecure, but easy to approach WU, as you can find so many agents near You.

I think it's better for them who don't have any payment processing accounts or accept online fund transfer e.g. Neteller, Skrill, Payoneer, Paypal, Payza or other. Usually people who are not very used to / comfortable with fund transfer through the internet use wire transfer or such services.

WU is not a practical online payment system to use, you might have some people willing to use WU, depending on what you are offering, but you will also lose many potential customers.

Instead you should use automated payment gateways, such as PayPal, Payza, Skrill, etc. And you can include WU as an alternative payment method.
