In some countries the terms "Postal Order" and "Postal Note" are used as synonyms, notably in the USA. However, the term "Postal Note" seems to be often used to refer to items which only had internal validity within the country concerned, eg Canada, New Zealand and South Africa.
For further information on the US usage of this terminology see the Wikipedia page on "Postal Notes".
If you are looking in on-line auctions for "postal orders" it is advisable to look for "postal notes" too.

The following example of a Canadian "postal note" is taken from web page http://www.bnaps.org/tutor/tut_rev.htm



And a New Zealand originally one from web page

For other images use "Google > Images" for the words "postal note".

John,Fiji also issues their own postal notes in addition to issuing B.P.O.s.

To me,the terms 'postal note' & 'postal order' both mean the same thing.

It's worth noting that the original proposals and essays for British postal orders were headed "Post Office Note". There is an illustration of one on the cover of PON 26 (October 1992), and on page 10 of PON 19 (December 1990).
