    I need to send a Money Order to someone in Canada... I seem to recall a problem with this in the past, but can't recall what the problem was... maybe I got a USPS one and that was no good... I don't remember.

    Can one of our friendly Canadians tell me if there are any issues USians should be aware of when sending an MO to Canada?

    Ceddy - I think you can get an International Money order at the USPS.

    If not, try Western Union.

    Sending money orders to Canada is not a problem, however many times up here a US postal money order can be almost impossible to cash, a bank money order is generally not a problem at all.

    Cedric;

    If you send a regular U.S. money order it can't be cashed in Canada. You need to get an International money order. They can be difficult to get. Alot of the time you have to go to the main postal office because the smaller outlets don't do them.
    Ironically, we have absolutely no problem cashing a U.S. check (why? no idea)
    Also, Canadians are known to readily accept U.S. cash, especially at par [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Thank you, both!

    [edited to say: thank you all *three*. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] I don't want to send cash and I don't want this person to have my bank info. It's not nearly as sinister as it sounds, just being cautious.]

    You can always get a cashier's check from any bank and that will work fine.
