7-Eleven Money Orders
7-Eleven sells Western Union money orders but doesn’t cash them. To find out more about 7-Eleven’s money order policy, we contacted store locations in California, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Washington.
Limits & Fees
The maximum amount you can purchase on a 7-Eleven money order is $500.
If you need a money order greater than $500, you’ll need to purchase more than one money order.
How to Buy
If you plan to visit the store at a late hour, you might want to call ahead to be sure that money order services are still available.
After purchasing a money order, you’ll need to fill it out before giving or sending it to the recipient.
It’s best to fill out the money order soon after buying it. If you lose a blank money order and someone finds it, they can write it to themselves and cash it.
Check out our step-by-step guide on how to fill out a money order.
If you need to know whether the recipient has cashed the money order after you fill it out and send it, you can track it.
To check the status of your money order, call Western Union’s money order customer service line at 1-800-999-9660.
If you end up not needing to use the money order for its intended purpose, you can request a refund directly from the issuer rather than 7-Eleven.
For money orders less than $20, a $3 fee will be deducted from the refund, while a $15 fee is deducted from money orders greater than $20. Refunds take up to 30 days to process.
Note that you can’t get a refund if someone has already cashed the money order.
