I would very much appreciate it if someone living in Australia could help me. I normally receive international payments via WUI but an Australian agency refuses to send me the money this way because the transfer fee is sky-high.
I have contacted Western Union's main office in Buenos Aires but they have no information. Could somebody please find out for me how much they charge to transfer US$ 197 from Melbourne to Buenos Aires?

Thanks a bunch!

I think you can find out the fees from their website Feb 26, 2004

I think there's a possibility to enter the country and calculate taxes, but I'm not sure.

I have found a price calculator on their site, but I think it only works for the US.

Sending 197 from California to Australia costs 22 USD.

I guess the charges should be about the same in all countries.
