What is a zip code and how do I find it?

What is a zip code?
A zip code is a kind of digital (or alphanumeric code) that is attached to a mailing address. This code greatly simplifies the process of sorting, sending, and receiving mail. In fact, a zip code is a digital address that is assigned to each individual post office.

In various systems, it is sometimes required to fill in your personal data, including your residential address, etc. This even applies to adding a bank card to the payment system for payments using NFC.

Many users see the "Index" field and are lost, do not know what to enter. Some even believe that this index is located somewhere on a bank card ... But it is the postal code that is meant.

What is postal code?
The postal code is a conventional numeric designation of the postal address, assigned to the object of postal communication. In simple terms, the postal code is a unique number of the post office.

For example, the post office, which is located at 46 Malaya Gruzinskaya Street, Russia, Moscow, has a postal code of 123557. We can say that this is a digital address that is issued to each post office and is used to sort postal items - manual and automatic. Thanks to the index, it is immediately clear to which post office you need to deliver this or that correspondence.

How can I find out the postcode?
In order to find out your postal code, you can use online services, for example, the official website of your country.

Thanks to this service, you can also find the address of the post office by zip code. But the main function of the service is to show the post office indexes.

Previously, when correspondence between people was carried out by sending / receiving letters, almost every citizen knew his index of postal code, since it was written on the envelope every time. Now, many do not even know what it is.

However, it is worth opening memoirs and descriptions of everyday life that tell about the events of the 18th-19th centuries, how this very humanity, the struggle for the lofty ideals of freedom and equality, as well as honor, conscience, convictions and principles will flow from their pages. Moreover, historical books will acquaint the reader with bright and strong personalities - politicians, military leaders, educators, poets and scientists.

Even a short description of their biographies full of passions and achievements will be enough to understand how the goals, aspirations, dreams, desires have narrowed and simplified since then. That is why the "ordinary consumer" needs at least sometimes to break out of the cycle of primitive needs and read historical novels, memories of bygone eras, polemical articles by prominent writers of the past, works of educators, philosophers and publicist
