Western Union, a global payment services provider, will launch its international business payments service in the Philippines. Petnet – a Western Union agent for consumer money transfer services – has signed an agreement to offer Western Union business solutions in the Philippines. Western Union business solutions provide cross-border business payments and foreign exchange (FX) solutions to small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs).

Coupled with universal Western Union brand recognition in the country, we are poised to change the way international commerce is done in the Philippines.”
