Western Union branches have different Peso exchange rates




A friendly reminder to everyone encashing their Google Adsense earnings via Western Union Quick Cash: scout first for the Western Union branch that offers the highest exchange rate because you will “lose” if you received a low rate.

This I realized when I encashed my Adsense income for November today. First I went to SM Megamall’s Bills Payment section where they process Western Union transactions. I asked what their dollar-to-peso exchange rate is and got told it’s $1 to P42.35.

I decided not to redeem my earnings yet and instead headed to an RCPI-Western Union branch inside St. Francis Square which is just across SM Megamall. The staff told me their current exchange rate is $1 to P42.67.

Betting that another Western Union pickup location can beat this rate, I went to Sanry’s Foreign Exchange at Glorietta Mall in Makati. True enough, they offer $1 to $42.70. I then decided to settle for this and I redeemed my November Adsense earnings.

Our reminder again: before you hurry to a Western Union agent for your Google Adsense payment, search first for a branch with the highest offered rate.

Because if, for example, you received $1,000 and decided to convert this to peso today at SM Megamall instead of Sanry’s at Glorietta, you would have “lost” P350 [$1,000 * (P42.70-P42.35)].

It might not be a big amount, but P350 still is P350, right?

If, for example, you received $1,000 and decided to convert this to peso at SM Megamall instead of Sanry’s at Glorietta, you would have “lost” P350. That’s $1,000 multiplied by the difference in the rates (P42.70-P42.35).

    I’m still waiting for my payment and chose Western Union Quickcash as payment method. I don’t know as of now the exchange rate of dollar-peso here in Tacloban but I’ll follow your recommendation once I receive my payment.

    Ooooooohh… pati na rin sa ID requirements.. may mga WU na sobrang strict.. like M Lhuillier WU.. ayaw talaga tanggapin pag wala sa list yung IDs na required.. pero sa EDSA Taft pwede :P

    from my experience, yung company ID dapat government issued talaga. grrrrrrr.. kasi pinakita ko company ID at SSS ID ayaw tanggappin.. pero sa ibang WU pwede kahit 1 valid ID lang.. ^___^

  3. Faith says:

    Usually, the difference in rates is because some of the branches are franchised. So, it really depends on how much each branch wants to give out.

  4. azlee says:

    sa akin pinapa dollar ko na lang and sell it at black market which gives me at $43+ rate

  5. Rex says:

    Western Union paid me mostly in dollars and partly in pesos. May extra kasing $4.18 so they converted that to pesos.

  6. Jam says:

    Thanks for this tip. I haven’t thought about it.

  7. Jayson says:

    Gusto ko sana mag-purchase online kaya lang walang funds yung Paypal account so pwede bang money transfer na lang like I’ll send money using Western Union to my Paypal account

    1. James | PinoyMoneyTalk.com says:

      Unfortunately, you can only fund your PayPal account via transfer from a US bank account or by using a credit or debit card.

      Alternatively, you can “buy” funds from other PayPal users who will transfer their balance to you. Try visiting our Buying / Selling PayPal Funds folder to look for users selling their funds.

    ung WU sa Mlhullier Villasis branch bastos ang isang staff. sinabihan ang brother ko “hindi ka ba marunong magsulat” kc ung wife nya ngfill up ng form… sa harap ng madaming tao ganun sasabhihin ng employee na un..

    1. James | PinoyMoneyTalk.com says:

      If you have the chance, try to report it to the branch manager so he can reprimand the employee for being rude to your brother. If WU is indeed a good company, the manager should listen to you and address your concern.

  10. Laurence says:

    I really dont understand, almost 1 week ive tried and tried of how can I set up my payment method through western union as a mode of payment, there is no option Western Union radio button…please guys help me.

  11. James | PinoyMoneyTalk.com says:

    Laurence, here’s the step by step guide regarding the use of Western Union in Google Adsense. See if you’re missing something.

    Some reasons I can think of why you don’t have the WU payout option:

    1. You’re not residing in Mainland China, Malaysia, Pakistan, Romania, Philippines, Argentina, Chile, Peru, and Colombia. Only publishers in those countries can be paid via Western Union.

    2. Your Google Adsense account is a business account. WU is available only to individual publishers.

    I have been scouting around for quite a while to get a good articles or blog posts with regard to this unique issue . Scouting around in Yahoo I finally came across this web site. After reading this kind of review So i’m glad to say that I’ve got a very good impression I ran across exactly what I was ready for. I most certainly will be sure to remember this website and look it over on a constant basis.

  19. Edelweiza Mabalay says:

    That’s right. I have experienced this myself when I tried to encash my Adsense earnings. According to the WU staff I talked with, those branches that don’t do forex (buy and sell currencies) have lower rates than those that do forex. :)

    1. Edelweiza Mabalay says:

      lower dollar-peso exchange, I mean.
