Jersey Post has today confirmed that postal orders will no longer be valid as a form of payment from 3 October 2018.
Jersey Post has been informed by the UK Post Office that they will be discontinuing this service to all Crown Dependencies later this year due to declining usage.
Neil Harrison, Head of Retail Operations at Jersey Post said, “We are very sorry that we will no longer be able to offer a postal order service locally from October this year. Unfortunately, the UK Post Office has confirmed that the service will be removed from post offices across all Crown Dependencies later this year.”
Postal orders will be available to purchase from post offices up until 2 October 2018 for use as payment in the United Kingdom, but customers wishing to cash a postal order should do so at any island post office in advance of the October deadline.
