Western Union Launches Cash Payment for Google AdSense Subscribers in Nine Countries



    Program Gives AdSense Publishers a Quick, Easy Way to Receive Funds

    ENGLEWOOD, COLO., November 28 /CNW/ - The Western Union Company (NYSE:  WU)
today announced a program that allows Google AdSense(TM) Website publishers to
receive payment in cash in nine countries via the Western Union Quick Cash(R)
service.

    The Google AdSense advertising program enables Website publishers to
serve Google AdWords(TM) text, image and video ads that are precisely targeted
to their Website's content. When visitors to the site click on the ad, the
AdSense publisher earns revenue.

    Before the launch of this program, Website publishers using Google's
AdSense program received payment via paper check or electronic funds transfer
(EFT) into a bank account. Now, subscribers in Argentina, Chile, China
(mainland), Colombia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Peru, the Philippines and Romania
can receive payment in cash at a participating Western Union Agent location.
In most cases, funds are available to the receiver the same day they are sent.

    The program will benefit AdSense publishers in numerous ways. By choosing
to receive payments via Quick Cash, they can receive their funds in U.S.
dollars or, at most Western Union Agent locations in the participating
countries, local currency. In addition, subscribers will not need bank
accounts to receive funds. And by choosing to receive their funds at a
participating Western Union Agent location, they can cut down on the bank fees
and long clearing times associated with depositing checks.

    "At Western Union, one of our strategic goals is to facilitate commerce
and expand our service offerings around the world," said Royal Cole, Executive
Vice President, Western Union Payment Services. "This unique program will
bring the ease, convenience, speed and reliability of the Western Union brand
to a new group of consumers - perhaps ones who've never used Western Union
before."

    The program has been highly successful, Cole said, and plans are in the
works to expand the program to additional countries by early 2008.
