Why we are required to fill in Postal Code/Zip Code while purchasing from online ? 

Most countries in the world have postal codes, which are mainly used to speed up delivery and accuracy. A small number of areas such as Ireland, Panama, Jamaica and Hong Kong do not have postal codes for various reasons. Many websites are not designed to accommodate areas without postcodes, so everyone needs to fill in the Hong Kong postcode.

 

How to fill in the Hong Kong postal code?

Just enter 0000 or 000000 where relevant. If this column is not required, you may also consider leaving it blank.

 

Two reasons why Hong Kong does not use a postcode system

According to the information provided by the Hongkong Post website, Hongkong Post mainly considers the following two reasons for not adopting the postal code system:

  1. The mechanised letter sorting system now adopted by Hongkong Post is capable of identifying over 90% of mail items with printed or written English addresses as well as printed Chinese addresses, and sorting the mail items into individual delivery beats. It is unlikely that the use of postcodes would considerably enhance the efficiency of postal operations.
  2. Typically, postcodes of other postal administrations consist of five to seven digits, denoting all buildings covered by mail delivery by district and by street. If a unique and structured postcode is to be assigned to each of the three million local residential and commercial addresses, postcodes up to 15 digits may be needed. Hence, the use of such postcode system is not user-friendly in Hong Kong.

Given the fact that in the absence of a postcode system in Hong Kong, mail delivery still attains a very high performance standard, we therefore do not have any plan to introduce such a system.
