    i'm a bit confused, do you have to write your signature onto your postal order or do you just put it in the envelope and send it off, without your own signature.

    *i have had the recipients name typed onto the postal order.

    yeah its usually typed... and they ask if you want it crossed or uncrossed...


    Crossed: They have to go to bank to get it cleared

    Uncrossed: They can simply get money straight away

    Been a long time but I'm pretty sure you don't need to do anything to it.

    You don't normally need to sign a postal order.
    You can get it done at the post office desk, tell them who you want it addressed to (their name for example, like on a cheque, not their actual address) and the amount, and the post office worker fills it in for you. You can get it crossed (which means the person you send it to then needs ID to hand it in for the money) or uncrossed (which means anyone can hand it in).

    There is normally a small charge on top of the amount you ask for too.

    I've done many postal orders in the past 2 years.
