The Philippine Postal Corporation will issue additional PHLPost Mailing Center Stamps. These definitive stamps are exclusively made for Postal Station operations. The Postal Station is one of PHLPost’s answer to the call of President Noynoy Aquino for government agencies to venture into Public-Private Partnership. It aims to give business and livelihood opportunities to people who want to enter in this kind of activity without having to invest large capital. Also, it is PhiPost’s way of bringing the postal service closer to the mailing public. Any would-be postal operation operator will have to pay an accreditation fee of Twenty Thousand Pesos (P20,000.00). Sixty percent (60%) of which (P12,000.00) shall cover the marketing tools and equipment, the starter kit and the training needed to operate. In return, he is entitled to a twenty percent (20%) rebate on PHLPost products, services and merchandise. But more than a business partner, the Postal Station Operator is seen as one of PHLPost’s advocate of efficient and effective public service. The Postal Station offers postal business transactions anytime, anywhere.

Stamps and Official First Day Covers of PHLPost Mailing Center will be available starting November 8, 2018, at the Philatelic Counter, Manila Central Post Office, Liwasang Bonifacio 1000, Manila and all the postal areas of the Philippine Postal Corporation.
