KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 23 -- Western Union, a leader in cross-border, cross-currency money movement and payments has expanded its white label offerings to Asia, enabling customers of third-party money transfer companies to pay out through Western Union.

Customers of Japan’s oldest remittance company, KYODAI Remittance and Korea’s leading fintech company, Hanpass became the latest collaborators to move funds globally through Western Union, according to a statement.
