In what other ways can I send money through Walmart?

If you do not wish to use the Walmart2Walmart service, Powered by Ria, or if you wish to send more than $1,300, your local Walmart offers additional options for sending money to family and friends. You can send a wire transfer via Western Union or money via MoneyGram.

MoneyGram and Western Union are wire transfer services that facilitate domestic and international P2P payment transfers, often within minutes, although some Western Union transfers can take up to five business days.

MoneyGram has a transaction limit of $15,000, while Western Union allows transfers of at least $10,000. Depending on the amount of money being sent, the method of sending it, and the destination country, fees can vary significantly.

MoneyGram is a financial transfer service with more than 380,000 locations and a headquarters in Dallas, Texas. Walmart-toWalmart Powered by Ria is exclusive to Walmart and Bodega Aurrera stores, as well as the mobile application.


Walmart-toWalmart Powered by Ria is a simple and inexpensive method to send money to family and friends for pick-up at a local store.
