Online money orders

Is the exchange rate at the branches the same as online? Do you charge any commission? Do I have to send some sort of document to place my order? I have already placed my order, where and how will I receive my currency? Can I cancel an online order? Do I have to be home or drop by Correos to collect my order? Can I return an order that I have picked up already? What happens if I have some leftover currency after my trip?
