Here I will give a quick guide so that you know – how to join postcrossing and do it correctly and without mistakes.
- To join postcrossing, go to the official website – postcrossing.com
- Fill in your English profile (so anyone can understand what you’re writing about) and give your home address. It will be visible only to members of the system and those who will send you a postcard. Don’t worry, postcrossing is safe.
Suppose you are not from the U.S. or another European or Asian country. In that case, I suggest that you duplicate your address in your local language to make it easier for the letter carriers to figure out who to deliver the card or envelope to.
Many people do this for convenience because many participants do not write the postcard address, print it out, and stick it on the postcard.
For example, if you are from China or Japan, then write your address in your English profile (international language) and write below in hieroglyphs.
I think with this all is clear. Let’s move on…
