Western Union F.A.Q.

In 1914 Western Union engineers invented the first payment card - a prototype of the modern credit card. In 1860 the U.S. Congress arranged among the telegraph companies a competition to create a national line. The winner was Western Union. In 1864, fearing the laying of long underwater lines, Western Union offered to carry out laying of telegraph lines to Europe through the Russian Alaska under the narrow Bering Strait and then to Siberia with branching in the major cities of Europe. The size of the commission fee for the transfer is charged according to the Western Union tariffs and depends on the amount of money sent. As a result of 2011, net income of Western Union has increased by 28% to $ 1.165 billion, the company reported. In 1933, by the Western Union Company were invented "singing telegrams". Thanks to cooperation with Western Union the Associated Press at the end of the XIX century took almost monopolistic position in the U.S. market news.
