  2. Mail a 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 to send and receive mail! Everyday I open my mailbox I find something new - from the bustling city of Berlin to the quiet streets of Singapore, I can't wait to experience what the postcards have to offer! And everyday I hope that a postcard will come - it has become my life!”
