Payday Express Money Order Services Makes Sending Money Simple and Secure

As proud Western Union agents, our money order services provide a secure way of sending money anytime, anywhere.  A money order is similar to a check, but much more reliable. Money orders are widely considered to be one of the safest forms of money transfers. Most businesses accept money orders when they may not accept typical forms of payment, such as checks or credit cards. This is due to the simple fact that money orders are incredibly reliable and risk-free. You can use money orders to pay bills, send money to a loved one, or save the money to be used for yourself at a later date. The money order never expires, so you can use it whenever the time is right for you.

Benefits of Money Orders

Money orders are one of the most reliable ways to send money or make payments. One of the main reasons money orders are more reliable and secure than standard methods of payment is that, unlike a personal check, a money order will never bounce due to insufficient funds. Once deposited, your money is secured until the proper recipient claims your money order. The money order will never bounce, unlike a check.

Many businesses prefer money orders over checks for the sole reason that they know that they will get their money. As a certified partner with Western Union, money orders from any one of our locations are the most reliable and secure alternative payment solution for you.
