Man: I need to send some money to Ottawa to pay for a magazine subscription, and I’m wondering what’s the best way.

Post Master: The best way is through posting money order, and for how much would the subscription be?

Man: Fifteen dollars.

The best way is through posting money order.

1- What does “The best way is through posting money order” mean?

  • Is “posting money order” a noun phrese?
  • Is “posting money order” a postal service"?

2- If no, is "posting " a verb? Does it mean “sending”?

Thank you

They probably said “posting a money order”.

The wording is weird.

The best way is to send a money order. (most natural)
The best way is by sending a money order.

Money orders can be purchased at many places, including the post office, some stores, banks, etc.

Post is a verb. Posting is a gerund.

He’s not too clear, but It sounds to me like “… through a postal money order.”
He just hints at saying both “a” and the “al” syllable in “postal”.
