Post office to begin international mail carrier service

April 29, 2011

Costa Rica’s post office will begin an international airmail service called Comercio Electrónico (Electronic Business) in November. The government wants to implement the service before the holiday shopping season begins in the United States in late November, according to the daily La Nación.

The service will include an international mailbox and a virtual site where you can purchase products and access offers and a help center. The country’s postal service enters a crowded market of international mail carriers, including Aerocasillas. A representative from the postal service told La Nación that deliveries will be made “to your door” and monitored closely from purchase to arrival.
