Post Office to launch electronic services in July

THE SLOVAK Post Office, Slovenská pošta (SP), will begin offering a package of electronic services to its clients in July this year, company officials said.

The initial package of e-services should include the electronic administration of packages, payment of checks through the Internet, and hybrid mail, which means that people can write letters or postcards on their computers and SP will print them and forward to the addressees.

Among other services, clients will also be able to reserve a P.O. Box through the Internet, the Hospodárske noviny daily reported.

Prices for the services, which will be available through www.epost.sk, are not known yet because they still have to be approved by the postal market regulator.
