Horrible application! tried sending in different ways, via ENBD bank transfer twice and money deducted from my account and nothing happened. Contact centre request not to do it via the app and go to the store. You cannot do the request and come to pay at the store, can only be done via the website. Just waste of customer time and effort.

Hello Dani, we regret the inconvenience caused. Once you complete the transaction, please click on logout button or link. We are working on enabling "Pay cash in store" option in app, it will be available soon. Please re-rate WU app if you're happy with the services.

The app used to be amazing and I have used it regularly every month and more since the beggining. However now the exchange rate has changed dramatically and it continues to do so increasingly, becoming very costly. I understand you need to profit also, bug the huge increase of the cost while the rate remains the same in the market does not make it worthy anymore - the only benefit remaining is that you can do the transfer from home, but there is other options in the market offering this.
