PHLPost encourages stamp collectors with new scheme
The Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) has launched a door-to-door delivery service called “Stamps on Wheels” for stamp collectors and enthusiasts who love to collect and use postage stamps for their mails.
By ordering online or through telephone, specially designated postmen or “wheel riders” will deliver these stamps and collect payments through Cash-on-Delivery (COD), a convenient method of payment upon receipt of items.
“Stamp collectors and those who are in their senior years find it difficult to travel or go out of their home to visit the post office during this pandemic period. We are offering this “special service” for the safety and convenience of our clients”, OIC, Assistant Postmaster General for Marketing Maximo Sta.Maria said.
He added, “PHLPost made stamp selling easier by regularly posting the updated listing on the quantity/availability of the stamps released for the information and appreciation of stamp collectors and philatelists.
Stamp collectors shall select items (stamps, philatelic goods) available on “The Stamp on Wheels” Facebook group page. The customer can also refer to the stamp release archive found on the PHLPost website (http://phlpost.gov.ph).
This program hopes to encourage stamp collectors to go back to their hobby now that they have time in their homes amid the threat of COVID-19.
The service is initially available in Metro Manila.
PHLPost continues to serve communities in the country by delivering mails and parcels while keeping its post offices safe for employees and the public.
