  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

“Receiving cards makes me warm and I'd like to share some happiness with who is unknown to me. Postcrossing makes two happy - the sender and the receiver. Double happiness, why not?!”
