Western Union F.A.Q.

In the 1910-1920 years. Western Union is actively engaged in researching, innovating in the field of data transmission. In the early 60s Western Union has put into operation transcontinental microwave system of data transmission via radio waves, completely replacing the web of telegraph poles and wires. Separation of the companies had two objectives: first, to give Western Union the opportunity to develop more intensively, and secondly, to help First Data to return to its original activity (in 1992 the company separated from the payment system of American Express as an independent financial services company). In 1914 Western Union engineers invented the first payment card - a prototype of the modern credit card. All you need for sending money via Western Union is to go to the nearest branch of Western Union, fill out the transfer printed form, show your passport and then send money.

July 3, 1884 the company's shares were included in the calculation base for the newly created stock index Dow Jones Transportation Average.
