Bitcoins and Money Orders

One of the biggest barriers to getting into bitcoins is the tedious process of going through several payment processors to actually get the bitcoins… Besides cash itself, the other alternative I can see would be money orders where you know that you can cash it without having to worry about check fraud and waiting for it to clear.

So, why don’t more exchanges have this as an option?

Money Orders are a physical paper medium and most Exchanges don’t want to get into the business of processing and sending out paper - which would be even slower and more costly than existing options.

They also typically have $1,000 limits - which would get in the way for a lot of users at Exchanges.
