Wes, one can get a money order in any curency(?). When I raced we needed to purchase parts from a small french company's rep in the Daytona area. He worked the IMSA and FIA events here in the US, Mexico and Canada. We used MO's in French Franks. France hit any natonal or company(at that time) bringing in large amounts of US dollars with a "embargo tax". They didn't have to pay it if using the national curency. And no not only Canadians, on ebay I have purchased items from (looking at my records) items from 8 countries and everyone who didn't take paypal demanded international MOs. Also you said "When I send a MO from Canada to US I get a World International bank draft from my bank in US funds.. I didn't know that a Canadian could get a money order in US funds and not be cashable free of charge in any country.. I have never heard of a NON-INTERNATIONAL MO and still be in US funds". I don't know the procedures in any country, I didn't know this could happen here. But, it can and it did. Also you say you get a "World International bank draft", if those words are on the MO, then that is another difference between the ones you purchase and the one sent. Nowhere on it does it have anything about being drawn on an international bank. Looking at a stub from a MO I sent off it does have words to that affect. Either way it is done, even if it were just my bank passing on a fee. If the seller had given me my credit through paypal, the way I paid, I would have had my money a week ago.
