Western Union, a global payment services company, has added Apple Pay for its flagship locations as a new payment option to fund global money transfers and bill payments in the US.

The new service, launched at Western Union’s flagship 1440 Broadway in New York City with more participating agent locations to follow, will allow customers to use their iPhone 6 to fund a money transfer transaction or bill payment.

Apple Pay service will also be available to consumers making Western Union transactions at kiosks in over 7,600 Walgreens and Duane Reade locations nationwide.

The service will cater only to the customers of the participating partner banks of the Apple Pay service and will require users to register their debit card on the mobile device.

Western Union Global Operations and Technology executive vice president and CIO David Thompson said: "Western Union is rising to the occasion as we harness our system with modifications to link cash and digital transfers between retail locations, mobile phones, prepaid cards, online and traditional bank accounts and ATMs."
