Western Union Business Solutions

How Awin managed their international payments on a large scale and reduced transaction costs as the business expanded

How Awin managed their international payments

Awin is an award-winning global affiliate marketing network with 15 offices worldwide, 100,000 contributing publishers and 13,000 advertisers. Awin connects customers with brands in over 180 countries around the globe. Using their existing banking providers to pay publishers around the globe was not a viable solution for their business needs.
Western Union Business Solutions was the perfect solution for Awin’s challenges. WU GlobalPay enabled Awin to upload and process high volumes of batch payments directly from their own platforms in multiple currencies. This removed the need for manual input and potential human error, while also reducing the exposure to FX volatility and international fees.
WU GlobalPay provides a full audit trail and ‘at a glance’ updates on progress of individual queries and issues to ensure these would be solved in a prompt and effective way. Awin are able to have a global view of all payments, no matter where they originate.
