Q: Can you get a money order in China?

I know they are not common back home anymore, but I was curious if they do have bank, or postal money orders in China? If so is there a limit(if you were to send one internationally)?

Post offices around the world do money orders, even back home and in China. You can use Western Union also, but I think the fee is more.

Post offices DO NOT do money orders any more due to the 419 scam. Western Union is person-to-person and not viable if you need to send money to a governmental organization.

 

Certified cheques can be obtained at main branches of ICBC (have someone phone and check ahead for you). You can have them made out in various major currencies.
