Postal Code Database

A Comprehensive Postal Code/Zipcode Database

Brief Intro To World Postal Codes Product

Before we beigin, its important to differentiate between postal code and zip code. The two codes are essentially the same in their purpose/use, but the term zip codes is mainly used in the USA whereas postal code is commonly used in other countries. ZIP Codes are postal codes used exclusively in the United States, and the basic format consists of five digits whereas a postal code is a series of letters or digits or both, sometimes including spaces or punctuation in itself. Moving on, the term ZIP is an acronym for Zone Improvement Plan. It was chosen to suggest that the mail/couriers/packages travels more efficiently and quickly when senders use the code in the postal address. And what we offer here?
