Customers will be able to use the Western Union Money Transfer Service to send money to over 30 Absa Bank locations across South Africa.

Money transferred via Western Union is available for pick-up within minutes from agent locations in the South African cities of Atlantis, Benoni, Booysens, Bramley, Cape Town, Durban, East London, Heerengracht, Johannesburg, Kimberley, Kroonstad, Midrand, Nelspruit, Polokwane, Port Elizabeth, Pretoria, Rustenburg, Sandton, Stanger and Thabazimbi.
