Western Union Co. will now enable customers to pay all their bills without filling out forms as part of its effort to further simplify payment options beyond online and text payments.
The payment-transfer company is giving consumers same-day, next-day and second-day payment options.
"Our walk-in payments solutions are a reliable and convenient way for consumers seeking to make last-minute bill payments," said David Shapiro, senior vice president of Western Union Payments. "It is a valuable money-management tool for the consumer who wants flexibility, convenience and choice in their payment budget."
Western Union's business suffered during the recession as unemployment has risen. The company has closed stores and cut jobs. Demand picked up some in the second quarter as Western Union in July reported earnings edged higher despite restructuring charges, with profit topping analysts' expectations amid higher transaction volumes.
Shares closed at $17.08 Tuesday and didn't trade premarket. The stock has fallen 9% this year.
