Default Has anyone had problems using Jpay?

Has anybody had any problems using jpay in the past? I have been sending money through jpay and all of a sudden i get a call today asking me to send money western union which is more expensive. I am like this the more money it cost to send the less money you will have to spend. Any ideas for his choice in companys?

I've used JPAY and the State of Alabama's pay system. No probs. I've also learned that if I send money orders, the money gets posted to my LO's books quicker. That may be a facility 'thing'. I send money orders most of the time and it's significantly cheaper.

Money orders do seem to get posted faster and are cheaper.

I was sending money through the ADOC site and it was posting the next day, then when they started making you sign up and pay up to $2.00 for an acct. just to verify that the email and checking acct. is mine, I decided I was not going to give them that money! That's ridiculous to pay them just to sign up on their website! I have used JPay a few times, so I started using it again two weeks ago and my husband has been getting his money within 2 days with it. I have never had a problem with them. I always heard people saying it took longer to have money orders posted because you have to mail it and then you have to wait for them to post it. I have a friend that her husband was in Limestone CF with my husband and she sent a money order and he didn't get it until a week later after they should have received it and she had to call them about it and they told her they didn't have it and then miraculously the next day it appeared on his acct.! But Limestone CF inmates have been told last week in a memo that they are cutting all of these ways of paying out starting Nov 1st and they are going to be using a company out of state and they will no longer accept money orders mailed to the prison or through JPAY or any other form except the new company they are changing to and my husband told me that some of the inmates said they have heard that this company takes sometimes up to a month to get the money posted to the inmates acct, so I guess we will see! I hope that's not the case and hopefully it will be cheaper for us! But I'm not holding my breath!
