To fill out a postal money order, write the name of the intended recipient and the name and address of the person sending the money order in the appropriate fields on the form.

Write the full name of the person you are sending the postal money order to on the "pay to" line of the postal money order. Depending on where you purchase the postal order from, this line might say "payee," or "pay to the order of."
Write your full name down on the "purchaser" line. On some postal money orders, this line might also say "from," "remitter" or "sender."
Write your address down where it says, "purchaser's address." Do not write the address of the intended recipient unless the postal money order has another address line for this specific purpose.
Write your signature on the front of the post money order where it says "signature," "purchaser, signer for drawer," or "purchaser's signature." Not all money orders require the sender's signature, however. In that case, there will be no signature line on the front. Do not sign the back of the postal money order, as this is where the recipient is supposed to sign.
