A certified check is a check that Metco guarantees with funds in your own account. A member of the Metco staff will prepare the check for you, with the payee’s name on it and your signature. Metco will then reserve that amount of money in your account as untouchable — thus guaranteeing the certified check will not bounce. It’s as good as cash, but safer to mail or carry around, especially if the amount is large.
A money order is a payment order for a pre-specified amount of money. Because it is required that the funds be prepaid for the amount shown on it, it is a more trusted method of payment than a personal check.
Metco offers money orders up to $2,000. Stop-in to our office to get yours today!
