What Are Zip Codes?

The word “Zip” in this context is a simple acronym for Zone Improvement Plan. Zipcodes are often used to determine the geographic area a person is located in. This helps to facilitate package delivery because a zipcode represents the postal code of a community, area, or building to which a package is meant to be delivered.

Zipcodes were first introduced in the 1960s by the United States postal service. This discovery was made when the United States Postal Service realized it was faster and more efficient to deliver mails using zip codes.

Ever since, numerous countries across the world, even in Africa, have adopted the usage of zip codes.

What is the Zip code for Ghana?

Just like other African countries like Nigeria, Kenya, and South Africa and so on, Ghana also has zip codes, you can also call it postal codes although it started late after most African countries are already making use of it.

Ghana uses the postal code system to help deliver mails and other packages. So be it zip code or postal code it can be used for mail delivery or for online forms.

On most e-commerce platforms or online forms, the zip or postal codes below in this article are not recognized but Ghana has a general zip code or postal code you can utilize for online forms or e-commerce websites which are 00233 and 23321.

The two codes have been used by Ghanaians before every district started having theirs or before the launch of GhanaPost GPS. So, if you are on an online platform that doesn’t recognize your district zip code you can make use of 00233 or 23321.

What is the Difference Between Zip Code and Postal Code?

Zipcodes and postcodes are virtually the same things. Postal codes are used for the same purpose as zip codes – mailing and delivery purposes. They help to direct mails and packages to the right recipients.

The modern postal code system was first developed in Ukraine in 1932 while they were a member of the USSR. Some years later, Germany started using postal codes, after which Argentina joined, and then the UK, as well as the United States.

But despite the fact that so many countries across the world use the zip code and postal code systems, there are still some countries such as Hong Kong and Gibraltar that haven’t adopted them yet. The main reason for this is that these countries are quite small geographically, so they don’t see the necessity to use postal codes or zip codes.

So, the platform you are on will either use the word zip code or postal code and this depends on the word mostly used in that particular country.
