Money orders are not a thing here in Mexico. If you need to get money to someone, they can give you their bank info and you can do a money transfer through OXXO or one of the online services

Good info from Sean . Never really thought about it but Sean is correct. No money orders here.

I think if you asked for one you'd get a very confused look from the clerk...or bank teller. I'd guess most never heard of them.

As Sean said, if you need to get someone money here you get their account number and transfer the money using Oxxo.

You can also make payment for many goods and services that way.
