Are you thinking of a postal order?

If you are go to the post office, swap it for however much you want, then send it and the person who gets it has to go to the post office to get the money.

If that not what you're thinking of ignore me :P

No, I know how and what postal orders are, I'm trying to buy the QC poster, and they're all the way over in the US and the lovely marketing person for them told me they accept money orders

Don't forget to send dollars, no pounds. Also, did you confirm they'd mail overseas?

It's a financial instrument, issued by a bank or other institution, allowing the individual named on the order to receive a specified amount of cash on demand. Often used by people who do not have checking accounts.

Pretty much a banker's draft.

I may be misrecalling but I think it was a money order I bought once to pay for some shareware from the States. If so, you get them at the bank - international money order.

Never worth it, the charges were more than the cost of the software. If they don't accept your parents' credit card, forget it.

You can get a cashier's cheque at a bank for ~6$ in fees + whatever the amount you're sending.

You can get a money order from a bank or post office. It's exactly as Higgs said it.

Well seeing it's $13 for the poster in the first place, if it's going to cost me more than that I wont bother. They do accept cards but I don't want to use my rents one,so oh well.

At least in the US money orders can be drawn from the post office for free. You'd just give them the $13 (or charge it) then they'd give you the money order. It's basically a check that won't ever bounce.

No, there is a charge for money orders at the post office.

And she was talking international...we can't get those at the post office and banks charge a hefty fee

Perhaps one of the American CG gang can get it for you and you can transfer the amount to their bank? Just a thought.

You need my bank details before you can donate your life savings to Counterglow.
