The typical 7-Eleven money order costs between $1 to $5. The exact fee depends on the size of the money order. The fee increases as the money order amount increases.
The 7-Eleven chain of convenience stores is a popular place to purchase money orders. The chain sells about $5 billion worth of money orders a year. The store is not a bank, so no checking or savings account is needed to obtain a money order.
In addition to money orders, 7-Eleven also provides customers with ATM kiosks to allow customers to withdraw cash quickly and easily. Anyone who desires a cup of coffee, a hot dog or snacks can get the cash needed to pay at the register.
