How to buy Mt Gox USD with a check or money order

To purchase bitcoin or Mt. Gox USD, send a money order or check to:

Matthew Courtney
P.O. Box 2592
Reston, VA 20195-0592

Be sure to include your name (or handle), your email address and that you want Mt. Gox USD. I also sell bitcoin, and without the note, the transfer may be delayed.

If you’re in the U.S. it should take only a few days. Once I receive the money and the check or money order clears, I will transfer the bitcoin or Mt. Gox USD.


I can only accept up to $500 per person per day, for now. Email me at bitcoinmorpheus at gmail dot com or pm me (morpheus) on the forum for more information.

When I send cash from Mt Gox, I create a redemption code which you can use at Mt Gox. If you don’t already have an account, please register before sending your payment. All accounts on Mt Gox are free and easy to set up.

Sending a check or money order

You can make the check or money order out to Matthew Courtney. Also, there is a 7 day delay to deposit the check. Once the delay passes, you will receive your bitcoin or Mt. Gox USD.

Sometimes, mail gets lost. If the check or money order doesn’t get to me, it can be canceled and you’ll get your money back.


I’m currently charging a 2% or $1 minimum fee for transferring money into Mt. Gox.
