Sending money via Draft

How does a Draft work?

A Draft is like a bank cheque made out in a foreign currency. It’s another way for you to make payments and settle a transaction overseas, especially if you don’t have the receiver’s electronic bank account details. Drafts can be sent overseas via mail and are available in a wide range of currencies.

Why should I use a Draft?

  • Access to more than 25 currencies. Click here for more details. 
  • Can be enclosed with letters or invoices and forwarded direct to the payee
  • Should your Draft go missing in transit, upon your notification, Western Union Business Solutions will normally be able to put a stop on it and issue a replacement. Conditions apply – click here for a Drafts Product Disclosure Statement.
  • Offers security around payment – Drafts are a non negotiable instrument and can only be credited to the payee’s bank account, unless the payee has endorsed the draft.
