The app is buggy with some issues that need to be fixed, like the receiver's phone number is supposed to be optional but if you don't put it in you get an error when you try to send money. Now you have to have a middle name on your account if you want to send cash in person but the app won't let you edit your name. Tried for hours with customer service, now I can't use my account anymore or even create a new one with the same email address, even though customer service said they deleted it...

Western Union sent the money after holding a day, I do not know why they were holding it. And when it sent and showed available for me and receiver, agent told that it still showing on hold in their system. Not sure that they use seperate system for customers and for agents. Sent two emails regarding hold and the issue. They say delivery in minutes, however they didn't mention how that many minutes. Should have stick to the old app, thought this would be faster.

Sorry for this hassle. Our Money in Minutes usually makes transfers available within minutes, however it may take more time. Funds may be delayed based on certain conditions, including amount sent, destination country, currency availability, regulatory issues, identification requirements, differences in time zones, or selection of delayed options.

It worked a few times but then I tried to send money but the system wouldn't give me an MTCN number and I fell victim to their system. It's been 4 days and I still haven't received my money back from 2 transactions they charged my credit card and still haven't returned my money. The system will swallow your money and they said I would get it back in one hour and it's been 4 days now. BE AWARE
