King’s Town Bank registered online banking account holders can now send and receive money internationally through Western Union’s money transaction service, announced Western Union Co., a leader in global payment services, recently. The Western Union Money Transfer service can be accessed through King’s Town Bank’s online banking portal at for the first time in Taiwan. “With Western Union, our online banking customers will be able to receive or send money electronically directly into or from their bank accounts within minutes,” said King’s Town Bank. “The new service also allows our bank customers to preregister recipients of money transfers, providing them with added convenience of completing a transaction at their own time and place via the Internet.

“Reliability is a fundamental aspect in all money matters regardless of the reason for sending money — as regular financial support and living expenses, a cash gift for someone special or for saving,” the bank added. “King’s Town Bank has worked with Western Union for five years, offering cash-to-cash money transfer services at our retail branches across Taiwan, and now we are offering our customers an alternative channel.”
