2. Where Can You Buy a Money Order?

The post office is the primary place to buy a money order. You can also buy them at any Western Union office. Many supermarkets, big box stores and convenience stores also sell money orders, as do banks and credit unions, and payday loan and check-cashing facilities. Each of these establishments also guarantees the money being transferred by means of the money order — which is safe for them to do, because you pay them the full value of the money order when they issue it.
