MoneyGram electronic money transfers sent directly to your bank account will show up automatically in your account. To collect a money transfer in-person go to any post office in Canada. You can receive up to $500 in cash, provided that funds are available at the post office. Otherwise, you can be issued your payment by e-transfer or by Canada Post money order.
How to receive money at a post office
- Ask the person sending you money for their MoneyGram reference number.
- Visit your closest post office to pick up your money. Bring along your reference number and government-issued identification (such as a driver’s licence or passport). The name on your identification must be exactly the same as the name the sender indicated on the MoneyGram form.
- Once you have provided your identification and a signature, you will receive your MoneyGram by cash (up to $500 depending on available funds), e-transfer, Canada Post money order or a combination of payment methods.
