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 to the UK or 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. 

We have printing machines at all our post offices, which means you can still use our online postage portal to create your postage labels. Visit any post office and show one of our counter staff the label and barcode number. They will then print the label instore for you to affix to your parcel. To purchase your label online please start here.

Please note that these printers are only for printing postage labels that have been purchased using our online postage portal. If you wish to print labels from Amazon and other retailers that are not a Jersey Post returns partner, you can print these at Rue des Pres and Broad Street. You can view our full list of returns partners here.

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 any of our post offices around the island
  • 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)

If you are interested in registering for a Business Collect service please click here for more information.

It is very difficult to provide exact delivery timescales to off-island addresses as there are so many factors* outside of Jersey Post's control e.g. weather, transport delays, processing in the destination country etc. However, as a rough guide we say: UK, other Channel Islands and Isle of Man - 3-5 working days. European addresses - 7-10 working days and Rest of World destinations up to 10-12 working days. Please note - these timescales are for letters and documents. Due to Customs restrictions and controls in other countries it is impossible to provide delivery estimates for goods or merchandise. 

*Please note that there will be a handful of occasions throughout the year, due to earlier tide times, when we must bring our post office cut off times forward to ensure same day despatch on the ferry service. On these occasions we will provide notice on our service updates page.
