Receiving payments from overseas?

Here is a more efficient and low-cost alternative to the SWIFT transactions that many use to receive funds from overseas via the major banks.

How does it work?

The remitter should send the funds in their own currency, and Western Union Business Solutions will convert them into Australian Dollars and forward to Pulse Credit Union for credit to your account.

Why should I ask my sender to send money via this service?
  • Better value for you – you are not charged a beneficiary deduct fee, so you will receive the full amount of your incoming payment.
  • Better value for senders – no fee is charged by Western Union Business Solutions to process your payment
