Why buy a Postal Money Order
You don’t need to have a bank account or credit card to pay bills like utilities or phone bills, or to make retail purchases.
You provide information about the sender and the person receiving the money to protect against someone improperly cashing the money order. There's also a barcode serial number, polarized ink and a security code that's verified when the money order is cashed.Get more details on security
