A More Perfect Union

Why Choose Western Union Payments?

Western Union started as a telegraph company in 1851, but it was with our launch of the Quick Collect® service in 1989 that we first entered the commercial payment services market. Since then, Speedpay, Inc. joined the Western Union family and became the first in the industry to offer a full suite of mobile payment solutions. We continue to be a leader in the industry with innovative and convenient payment strategies offered through Speedpay and Western Union for businesses that serve 50,000 or more bills per month.

*Speedpay, Inc. provides payments processing services to assist our clients in receiving payments from their customers. Western Union Financial Services Inc. provides its customers the ability to send money transfers to their billers to pay their bills.
