Shopping online always seems easy at first. Within a few clicks, you can usually find the perfect pair of shoes, that custom sports jersey, or the ideal gift for someone special.
Then comes the stressful part – making the purchase. You’re usually whisked to another page asking you to enter precious personal information such as bank account codes, credit card numbers – even your home address and phone number. It’s information that you don’t even feel comfortable giving friends, much less giving to a merchant on the Internet. In most cases, websites use secure connections, but you’ve seen and heard about Internet breaches.
Instead of typing your valuable, guarded information on multiple websites, use a service you can trust –WU Pay by Western Union. When you purchase an item online, click WU Pay for payment. They’ll email you a bill with payments instructions and options:
- At your bank’s website using online bill pay (just like paying for a utility bill), or
- With cash at a participating Western Union agent location in the US.
Once your payment is processed, Western Union will notify the merchant and they’ll ship your order.
