This does not address the main issue of repetitive manual input, and the 
only difference between a bank account check and a money order (in terms 
of bouncing) is that it is slightly more difficult to bounce a money 
order (at least intentionally).  However, both options can be bounced, 
and, yes, I am speaking from personal experience.  I used to work for a 
Bankruptcy Trustee, who only accepted mo/cc.  There were instances of 
bouncing, and those tended to be mistakes by either the purchaser 
(reporting wrong lost mo/cc) or the issuing entity (incorrect input on 
cashed or lost mo/cc).  Even though a bounced mo/cc is rare, it causes a 
huge headache.
