Malawi Posts Corporation provides a cost-effective delivery service of letters and documents domestically and internationally. This is a standard postal service with set delivery standards from the time of dispatch to arrival at the point of delivery.
Customers send ordinary mail by purchasing postage stamps and stamps issued by means of impression of franking machines and prepayment of postage in cash at the post office counter. The postage rate is dependent on the weight of the envelope and the destination.
A postal franking machine is a stamping machine intended to stamp impressions of dies of approved design on private and official postal articles in payment of postage and postal fees. Customers who process huge volumes of mail purchase these machines from manufacturers, or their agents for the purpose of franking correspondence with an impression, denoting the amount of postage prepaid.
- Easier and convenient to use than stamps
- The franking machine can be pre-set with current postage amounts, hence saving time required to refer to postage rates in use.
