    Crossed is when there are two lines across the whole postal order (as if it had been crossed out). It means the recipient has to pay it into the bank account of the person whose name is on it.

    If theit is uncrossed, then it can be paid into a post office with just a signiture.

    Even if it is crossed most Post Offices will cash it if you have ID.

    An uncrossed one just makes it easier for the recipient to get the money, that's all.

    But an uncrossed one is just like cash, so if it goes astray anyone can get the money

    You can cancel it if it goes missing tho (I'm assuming it's an Ebay thing where you would know soon enough the seller hadn't received it). Most postal orders aren't for very much money...I can't imagine anyone robbing the post for a £5.00 PO from Aunty Bessy.
