Not true, at least, not completely true.  I've been running a mial order 
business for 17 years, and never had any trouble depositing USPS money 
orders from customers.  That is, depositing, rather than directly 
cashing, but still - I get the money.  Ditto with the occasional 
Canadian money order/postal order (in US dollars).  Of course, I am also 
deep in (barely) blue state country, due to be annexed by Canada any day 

As far as foreign business, MC/Visa (and other majors) are the best way 
to go, but not easy for individuals doing small numbers of transactions, 
of course.
