BanCoppel Teams With Western Union to Receive Remittances Using Mobile App

  • BanCoppel account holders will be able to receive up to USD $2,999 per day and USD $3,000 per month in remittances

MEXICO CITY, Feb. 13, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BanCoppel and Western Union today announced a new service for customers in Mexico to receive remittances digitally. Through the BanCoppel mobile app, which is available for Android and iOS, customers who receive cash remittances up to USD $2,999 per day and USD $3,000 per calendar month from abroad will be able to deposit them in their BanCoppel bank account.

This new service is part of the long-standing collaboration established in 2013 for BanCoppel to offer Western Union global money transfer services. To access it, customers in Mexico must have an active account and a digital services agreement with BanCoppel, which they can set up at any local BanCoppel branch in the country.

Estephany Paulette Ley Monarrez, Consumer Banking Director, at BanCoppel added “We are known for offering services that help the population improve their quality of life, so having partners like Western Union, who join us and support us in this digital evolution and in boosting financial inclusion, is key in our activities.”

Sending remittances continues to be important in the country, as it helps millions of families stay connected with their loved ones in different parts of the world, so it is important that customers have a trusted and reliable means to send money cross border.

“In 2023, 62% of Mexicans have used the internet to carry out banking operations1; with this in mind, our continued collaboration with BanCoppel to offer this new service allows us to provide more options and help make transactions more efficient,” said Claudia Reyes Armebianchi, General Manager for Mexico and Central America at Western Union.
