How do I know if my Item has arrived at the post office?

To know if your item has arrived make use of the convenient track and trace System, available on the NIPOST website. You can also call or sent an email to the Customer Service Centre if you cannot find your mail item.

There are other tracking software but I recommend the NIPOST because the website has all the postal codes of all the states, L.G.As, cities, institutions, universities, towns, and villages in Nigeria. It’s also managed by the Nigerian government.

Does NIPOST deliver outside Nigeria?

The Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST) is the national carrier of all classes of mail items for delivery both within and outside Nigeria. Mail items, which include letters, postcards, printed papers, parcels, and aerograms are processed through the post office. On this, you need to learn postal code and ZIP code, how they work.

If you already have your tracking number, you can go straight to the ‘Track Trace’ page and enter the number in the text box to track your delivery.

Package/items can be tracked on NIPOST for free. You will need your ID and the tracking number to collect your item, plus money for import taxes and the handling fee if the item is being shipped from another country. You need to ask the sender for the tracking number.

Does Jumia use a courier or postal service for delivery in Ikwo, Ebonyi State?

It depends on what kind of delivery you choose yourself: free, or paid. This will determine the way of delivery. If it is free shipping, the parcel will likely be delivered by postal services. If it is a paid shipment – the courier service will be responsible for delivery. 

However, some goods on Jumia support only one specific method of delivery and you should consider this before placing your order.

And if the goods are to be shipped from outside the country, you should know that some courier services do not deliver shipments to certain countries, then the parcel will also be handed over to the postal service. 

It is best to check how the parcel will be delivered before paying for the purchase.

Your postal code or ZIP code is also used as a security measure. When buying items online with a credit card, you’ll usually be asked to provide the mailing address linked with your card. 

This measure is to ensure that you’re the one using your card. Some sites also prompt you to provide your postal code. Whenever I make purchases on Namecheap, they usually prompt me to provide my postal code and if I didn’t provide it the transaction will always be unsuccessful.
