Post PNG’s innovative e-commerce project, especially with an online shop, will go down in history as the first in PNG.
The company last year undertook this project, bringing to reality its concept of an online one stop shop for its customer base.
E-commerce offers Post Stamp, Post Shop, Post Market and Post Box, through the technological platform, similar service as to the known E-bay site.
Post Stamp was launched last year in May, as the online platform to sell all Post PNG issued stamps to collectors.
Post Shop, taking the concept of an online mega-mall allows established businesses to sell their products through this one shop. Since coming live last August, Post Shop has attracted six companies including Ela Motors and Fone Haus.
Post Market is the most recent one to come live as of the last week of March. It gives any individual the opportunity to sell whatever product they have to offer and establish contact with their customers. This site is to grow the Small and Medium Enterprise.
Post Box is the final phase of the project which is still under construction. Anyone with a Post Box account will be notified when they have received mail.
Philatelic Manager Banian Masiboda says these developments have been made to provide an efficient and convenient service to customers.
"As PNG is developing, the timing of the project, for some reason, may seem premature in terms of technology advancement and the general perception by our people, however, come to think of it, it is imminent.
"The e-commerce project is one that was muted some years back while we were in Boroko, however due to lack of support from previous management, it was shunned until last year (2015).
"For the project to materialised, I must give credit to our current CEO Mr Greyling Park, who gave my department the vote of confidence, and continue to see it through to this day," he said.
