This check cashing article describes Kansas City money order cashing and what you need to know in advance when cashing a money order.
It is often that people will walk into our WaldoFinancial Kansas City check cashing location and ask whether or not we will cash money orders in addition to check cashing.
The answer is always: Yes, of course we do!
The next Kansas City money order cashing question that comes up is usually about is the cost of cashing the money order.
We charge a fee of 10% on all money orders unless we were the company that issued the money order.
If we issued the money order ourselves and the money order is brought back to us within a 24 hour period, we will cash the money order free of charge.
If the money order was issued more than 24 hours earlier, but within a week of the purchase date, we would charge 3% of the money order amount.
When the money order is older than a week old, the check cashing charge would be the same 10% fee that we charge on all other money orders.
