.post could become focal point for global e-commerce

Posts are expressing enthusiasm about .post, the UPU’s top-level internet domain, saying it could become a major hub for online shopping and exchanging sensitive data.

The exclusiveness of .post could give customers a heightened sense of security, says Ogone Oscar Mokoko Gaboutloeloe, Head of Government, Regulatory and International Affairs, Botswana Post.

Integrating various e-services into the .post platform could improve the customer experience, say Mohd Zaidi Abdul Karim (left), Head of Postal Regulation and Digital Signature, Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission and Chum Choy Han (right), Chief Operating Officer, Pos Malaysia International.

The first priority of the UPU's .post group is to develop a trusted e-commerce platform, says Sander Hart de Ruyter, Information Manager, International Mail, PostNL.
