So, the story is following.

I was asked to translate an official letter that contained some financial terms.
I translated one phrase as follows: "...you have received the moneyorder onto your bank account..."

And then I was asked to change the word moneyorder into payment

I had some argument with that person (he agreed at last, by the way :twisted: ). In my opinion payment is something that you cat do, but you cannot receive it onto your account.

Aren't I right??

Please, tell me which variant would sound more correctly?

Thanx in advance.

Try,

The money order has been deposited into your account.
Payment for______(services) has been deposited into your account.

All the best, :D
