How it works

Save time and skip the queues by paying and printing your postage labels online in a few easy steps:

1. Register for an account

Register for a free Jersey Post account or login if you already have a username and password. 

2. Buy postage online

Once registered, create, buy and print your postage label and affix it securely to your item.

3. Post your item!

Drop your item off at any of our island-wide post offices, or pop it in a postbox if it fits.

By buying postage online, you benefit from a 2% discount. It is the simplest and most convenient way to buy postage as there is no need to visit and queue at the post office.

Driven by Universal Postal Union (UPU) regulatory changes, anyone sending parcels internationally must provide electronic pre-advice customs information. This includes information on the sender, the recipient, and the details of the contents within the parcel. For more information, click here. 

Dedicated label printing machines have been made available at all of our Post Offices for customers that do not have access to printing facilities. This means you can still create and buy your postage online and email it to the printer when you arrive at your nearest Post Office. 

Once you've securely and correctly affixed the postage label to your item there are a number of ways you can get it to us, either:

  • Drop it in to the counter at our Broad Street Post Office or Postal Headquarters at Rue des Pres;
  • Post it in a letterbox providing it will fit; or
  • Have it collected as part of a scheduled Business Collect service (only available to business customers)
