they take cc.

I believe that's only the usps fee, for state department need a check. I also wouldn't try a business check, is hard enough to get passport now don't need another delay.

I have an appointment today but I realized I only have business checks, no personal.   They specify personal checks.  But will business work as well? Or I need to go get a money order?
Is the appointment at the post office or at the regional agency?

post office
Personal check means you do not need a bank check.

If they are not okay with the check you can always buy a money order at the post office.

I would just cross out the business name and write the name of applicant or parent.
