Money orders are useful any time you don’t want (or aren’t allowed) to use a check or cash to make a payment. Following are several situations where you may use a money order:
- You need to send a secure payment through the mail
- You’re buying something and the seller does not accept check or debit card
- You need to pay some bills but you don’t have a bank account
- You’re making a large purchase and you don’t want to carry around a large amount of cash
A Money Order provides a safer, more secure way to make a purchase and guarantees payment. The recipient will be able to cash the Money Order as they would a check.
