    As the title says, when you want to offer WU as a payment method for you clients.
    What are some of the "best practices" you follow?

    You need a business account with Western Union and to be prepared to go through similar due diligence checks as you would when singing up for any other merchant accounts.

    If you ask your customers to address the payments to yourself as an individual (as a lot of merchants do when starting out), then you'll quickly find your account suspended as WU only allows a certain (low) number of incoming transactions per month.
