The post office is the national postal service of the United Kingdom, which means that it ensures that letters and parcels are delivered throughout the country.
But the post also handles some banking services, including some international bank transfers, which it provides through Western Union.
Both are trusted companies, so sending your hard-earned money overseas through this route is a safe process.
To send money abroad, you must first register with the Post Office to start transferring money. You can do this on a desktop computer, mobile device, or tablet.
Simply type in Ukraine and select the amount you wish to transfer. You can send up to £8,000 at once.
The screen will then show you two options. Select whether the recipient wishes to receive the money in cash or by bank transfer.
You can make the transfer either by bank transfer from your UK checking account or by entering your credit or debit card details.
Once you have gone through the entire process, the money will be available to the recipient within minutes.
La Poste says, “If your money is needed in minutes, you can send online using your credit or debit card.
“Recipients can withdraw money at Western Union branches around the world, depending on the opening hours of those branches.
“If your recipient lives in a country where we offer mobile money transfer, you can send money to their mobile phone in minutes. Make sure your recipient has activated a mobile wallet with one of our partner mobile operators in their country.
“If you’re sending money to a bank account, your money is usually available for up to 2 business days, depending on the destination country.”
The rates are also much lower than many other providers, and the rate you will pay will be made clear to you when you make the transfer.
