Taking charge at the My Post 24 terminal

From Sandra Gurtner | 15.06.2018

Do you recognize this situation? You’re eagerly waiting for a parcel, but all you find in your letter box is a collection note? This does not have to be the case. With My Post 24, you can receive and send parcels when it suits you. But these handy terminals offer more:

Lockers

Did you know that the My Post 24 terminal can be used as a locker? This could be useful if you need to hand over keys and your letter box is unsuitable for this purpose. Or if you’re on the way home and decide to go for a drink but don’t want to lug your shopping around with you.

Confidential addresses

You may want to give a gift to someone special but don’t want the parcel to reach them in the mail before you arrive. No problem. You can address your item to the My Post 24 terminal of your choice. You can be sure the surprise won’t be spoiled.

Holiday addresses

If you don’t want to wait for a consignment until after your holiday, or you have ordered something special for your time away, you can use a My Post 24 terminal as your address if holidaying in Switzerland.Advent calendars, scavenger hunts, etc.

Do you want to bring some creativity to your circle of friends? Why not use a My Post 24 terminal this year to create an advent calendar of epic proportions? Or incorporate a My Post 24 terminal as a stop-off in your next scavenger hunt? The terminal sets no limits to your ideas.

Your security is paramount

Ensuring that your items are secure is our utmost priority, no matter how you decide to use the My Post 24 terminals. You therefore need to create a free user account at swisspost.ch/login as a one-off measure before you can use the service to its full extent. You will then receive a letter with a confirmation code for your address within three days. If you already have a login, all you need to do is go to the customer center, activate the option “My Post 24” under “Mailing and receipt services”, and check whether your address is already confirmed. If it isn’t, please request a confirmation code. After registration, you will receive an e-mail with your personal user ID. You will need the user ID to use a My Post 24 terminal as a recipient address. Once everything is in order, you can use the service as and when you need. The login process is also explained step-by-step at swisspost.ch/mypost24.
