Money Orders FAQs

A money order is a secured form of payment that is guaranteed in advance because it is purchased with cash. It’s paper like a check, but payees generally prefer a money order over checks because it can’t bounce. If you receive a money order, you can cash it or deposit it into a personal banking account.

Using a money order instead of a check protects your privacy because your account information isn’t printed on it. If you don’t have a checking account or credit cards and the payee doesn’t accept cash, a money order could be a good option. Money orders are also beneficial when you want to send someone money by mail because it is more secure than putting cash in an envelope. Be sure to keep your receipt for tracking purposes.

Places that issue money orders typically charge a fee in addition to the amount of the money order. The fee amount can vary from state to state and is disclosed during the process of purchasing a money order. Go to your nearest ACE store to get the details about money order service at that location.
