ordene de pago

Post by hlf2888 » Fri Sep 13, 2019 12:49 pm

What exactly is this mysterious orden de pago, google says it is a money order. I had asked if I could send a wire transfer which I had done successfully many times from my bank in Canada to Chile when present in Chile. This time I asked if I could send the wire transfer from Canada, while in Canada, and got this elusive to me, answer.

When I asked the bank manager (by email) I used the google translate term for international money order which was
un giro postal internacional


"Debe emitir una orden de pago al exterior hacia Chile por el monto que desea, debe respaldar el origen de los fondos para que cuando este en Chile y quiera hacer el cobro no hayan inconvenientes".


Can anyone explain please in baby words what they want? gracias

Anti-money laundering measure, proof of origin of the funds, if you can't show this, you may have problems on it being released in Chile.
There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true;

the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

I think you should have said SWIFT instead of the giro postal. They're thinking you're going to send them a cheque and they're telling you they won't accept a simple cheque, but will accept a certified cheque/money order. The moment you get certified cheque/money order at your Canadian bank, the money is taken out of your account and placed in the bank's holding account until the Chilean bank asks the Canadian bank to wire them the money based on your certified cheque/money order.

It was all about "the Swift".....It shows I don't send or receive money from overseas.😁
