  2. Mail the postcard to that address
  3. Receive a postcard from another postcrosser!
  4. Register the Postcard ID you have received
  5. Go to number 1 to receive more postcards!

User testimonials

“I love getting post! But now it is like an adventure. My kids cannot wait to see where the next one comes from. The hunting for nice postcards is also adding to the fun. It is like a little geography lesson every time you go to your postbox! Happy postcrossing!”
