Many philatelic collectors choose to purchase new Australia Post products via standing order, ensuring they automatically receive qualifying products on issue.

There are many benefits of setting up a standing order, primarily to ensure you never miss out on adding new, and often rare, qualifying products to your collection.* You can decide exactly what you want to receive, with no minimum issue restrictions on your purchase. No queues, no fuss, just products delivered to your door as soon as they are available.

What’s more, if you decide you want to change your order you can do so at any time. There are no handling charges associated with standing orders and you can take advantage of free delivery if products are sent quarterly.

  • Enter your name and address details.
  • Choose your delivery method: by issue, monthly or quarterly. Don’t forget quarterly is free.
