wiring funds to Oxxo or Coppel

Sorry to revisit an old topic but I ran into a snafu trying to wire funds to my cuidador in zihua and want to use Western Union for maybe 3 times during this low season.

I know that the recipient must have a valid Mexican ID to pick up funds in addition to a tracking number, are their any other requirements a recipient to obtain the funds?

If the funds are sent by Western union to say Oxxo or Coppel, do I, as the sender need to identify the specific street address or store number of the Oxxo or Coppel location?

Gracias

I do it every month and have no problem. If I remember correctly you pick the location to send it too when you add the recipient. .... then each month I just click the name of the recipient and how much I want to send.....click send and it gives me the tracking number which I send by Facebook messenger ..... very easy......might be a cheaper way

Make sure the you send to is exactly the same as the ID they use when picking up money.

Their is a limit on he amount to send to pick up at wth WU station in Electra bank.

Casa Juan, you do not identify the Oxxo or Coppel location, just the city of Zihuatanejo. As stated above, the Western Union site will ask for recipient's name(as shown on I.D.) the recipients address which should also match that of their I.D. Once you register and log onto the Western Union site, it will have pretty easy to follow instructions.

Final question I hope , using Western Union from US is it necessary tp specify US$s as the amount or can I request the amount in MXN pesos?

Yes make sure name is exactly as appears on ID..........it should prompt you to check the money your are requesting be in MXN funds or you home currency when you are doing the transfers........ it then calculates whatever your fees are and displays a total cost to you
