Fiji Post Promotes Stamp Usage

Radio New Zealand International is reporting Fiji’s sole postal services provider, Post Fiji Limited has temporarily put a freeze on its mailing franking machine in a bid to promote Fiji through the usage of stamps.

Fijilive indicates that the company has confirmed that all its franking machines will temporarily be removed from all post office counters.

A franking machine is a machine that prints an impression on mails, indicating postage has been paid, which qualifies it to be posted.

It can be used as an option to postage stamps.

The company, in a paid advertisement last week said the removal of the machines was part of its initiative to personalise letters and parcels by placing stamps on them to give it more value.

Post Fiji Ltd manager public relations Merelita Isimeli is quoted as saying that postage stamps, apart from paying the postage fee, promoted the countries from where it originated from and personalised items posted through the mail.
