    Why purchase a Postal Money Order

    Easy to use

    No bank account or credit card is required to pay bills such as utilities or phone, or to make a financial or retail purchase.

    It’s secure

    To protect your Postal Money Order, you provide information about the sender and the person receiving the money. There's also a barcode serial number, polarized ink and a security code that's verified when the money order is cashed.

    We guarantee to refund lost, destroyed or uncashed money orders after 45 days (the $7.50 fee paid for each money order is non-refundable).
