I refuse to accept anything other than USPS Money Orders when payment is coming by mail. You don't need to wait for them to clear. They call up to verify whether it is legit and cash it on the spot. They can also be tracked like a check if they are deposited into a bank account. At the very least, they can tell you which branch it was cashed at if it was not deposited.
Next time specify that and see how they respond.
