How to Send International Money Orders

International money orders can be purchased at any Post Office location in values up to $700 ($500 for El Salvador and Guyana). An international money order is printed out with only the dollar amount filled in, and all other fields are left blank. As the purchaser, you’ll need to fill in who the money order is payable to.

  1. Decide on the money order amount.
  2. Go to any Post Office location.
  3. Take cash, a debit card, or a traveler’s check. You cannot pay with a credit card.
  4. Fill out the money order at the counter with a retail associate.
    NOTA: International money orders are only printed with the dollar amount. Other fields are left blank. You should fill in the "Pay to" field as quickly as possible; otherwise, if the money order is stolen, anyone can cash it and you cannot apply for a refund.
  5. Pay the dollar value of the money order, the issuing fee of $10.25, and the processing fee based on country.
  6. Keep your receipt to track the money order.
  7. Send the money order via Priority Mail Express International®, Priority Mail International®, First-Class Mail International®, or First-Class Package International Service®.

Receiving Money Orders – How to Spot a Fake

Antes de aceptar un giro postal, compruebe que sea auténtico. There are several key things to look at to spot a counterfeit money order.

Examine el Papel

Real USPS® money orders have specific marks and designs to prevent fraud. If you hold the money order up to the light you should see:

  • Watermarks of Ben Franklin on the left side repeat top to bottom (circle 1 on image).
  • A la derecha de la marca de agua de Franklin, un cordón vertical multicolor con las letras “USPS” entra y sale del papel (círculo 2 en la imagen).

Verifique el Monto en Dólares

  • If the dollar amount is discolored, it may have been erased, indicating fraud (circle 3 on image).
  • Make sure the dollar amount is imprinted twice (circle 4 on image).
  • See if the dollar value is too large.
    • Los giros postales domésticos no pueden ser mayores que $1,000.
    • Los giros postales internacionales no pueden ser mayores que $700 ($500 para El Salvador y Guyana).
