Is Postcrossing free?

Yes! Signing up and using the random matching service that enables you to connect with other users is completely free. We believe this is the best way to allow more people from around the world to join the project, increasing the diversity of postcards sent and locations available to make it much more interesting for everyone! So go ahead and join us if you haven't yet!

However, you will have to pay for the postcards and postage! We'd love to be able to help with these costs, but it isn't feasible, so the costs of postage are on you.

Running the project does have costs for us, so this is why we display ads on the site. We also have an option which allows members to support us via voluntary contributions.
