Has anyone used WU in Taiwan? I get a small check from Mr. Google from time to time, and it'd be nice to get the feel of the cash in my grubby little paws rather than send it off to my stock broker to cash... Cashing a $100 check is just a waste of time and money in Taiwan, ... So.. it'd be nice to use WU.

OK. It seems that there are several banks that do this:It seems Zhanghua bank, Cathay and Taishin. I will visit the branches on Tuesday on Keelung (Jilong) Road, to ask!

But mr.google requires that I use Western Union Quick Cash...

Let's see what they say.

I used it once, I believe they charge 700NT$ per transaction if I remember right ... but I might be wrong, it's about two years ago ...

ouch~! On a us$100 incoming payment, that's a little steep! It might be worth it on a $1000 payment, but I don't know anyone who's willing to send me that much!

I'll have to figure out how to increase the size of the payments.
