Frequently Asked Questions FAQ
What is BeePost? – BeePost is a private postal operator concentrating on the delivery of mail in the manner attractive to collectors – all deliveries to be paid with affixed BeePost postage stamps. BeePost post has branches in three countries: Lithuania, Estonia, and Finland. The nominal (face) value of BeePost stamps is expressed in Euro.
Can BeePost EE (Estonia) stamps be used to pay for sending correspondence from another country where BeePost operates? – No, BeePost issues separate stamps for each country of its operation, and they are valid and used to pay for the mail originating from the respective country only. You can easily detect the country of service by the internationally accepted codes: EE – Estonia, LT – Lithuania, FI – Finland. In other words, BeePost Estonia cannot pay for sending a letter from Lithuania or Finland and vice versa.
Are BeePost stamps “souvenir stickers” or postage stamps? – BeePost stamps – are real postage stamps. Those stamps represent the only payment mean for the mail forwarding service via BeePost and according to BeePost tariffs. BeePost stamps are classified under the heading “postage stamps of private operators”.
In which philatelic catalogues can I get information about BeePost stamps? – BeePost launched the activity in October 2022, so there is no traditional BeePost catalogue yet. Until the BeePost stamps appear in popular philatelic catalogues and until the BeePost catalog is released, the publication of which is scheduled for the end of 2023, follow the information found on the site www.beepost.shop.
What is a private postal operator and how does it differ from the traditional state postal operator? – In many countries, the state postal operators no longer exist, as a rule, their functions are performed by the private business of international logistics companies (for example: in Germany it is DHL, in Sweden it is PostNord, in Estonia it is Omniva, etc.). Even in those countries where the present postal operators have retained and are still using the historical title POST, they are often operating as joint-stock enterprises in which the state (sometimes) owns a smaller or bigger part of the shares. Apart of some exceptions, the state-owned postal operators have survived only in countries with authoritarian rule or a closed economy.
Can BeePost stamps be used to pay for the services of other postal operators? – No, and in order not to accidentally confuse the BeePost stamps with the stamps of other postal operators, we created a unique original design and do not use the full designation of nationality (the countries names), but only the internationally accepted abbreviation (LT – Lithuania, EE – Estonia, FI – Finland).
Where can I find the BeePost stamp release plan? – The plan of the future stamp issues soon will be available on our website www.beepost.shop.
