EN>SP:
Is there any difference between Postal money and Money order? Can they both be translated as "giro postal"?

Thanks!

Explanation:
Yes,you are right. Both can be translated into giro postal.
"Postal Money" you can get only at the Post Office. "Money orders" can only be cashed at the bank.
In any case the best translation seems to be yours: Giro postal.

Greetings, :)

Explanation:
Postal money order (todo junto) es giro postal según Orellana, Urrutia
Money order es giro postal según A. Varó, Urrutia, Kaplan
Postal order es giro postal según kaplan.
Postal order es orden postal de pago según Cabanellas
Money order es orden de pago según Cabanellas.

La verdad es que nunca vi "postal money" sin el "order" detrás. Aparece como "money order" o "postal order", pero es todo lo mismo.

Espero que te sirva.
