Locating the postal code (or zip code) of any place in Nigeria can be a huge headache. This is majorly due to the low level of awareness of Nigerians on postal services in the country.

Firstly, a postal code is a series of letters, digits included in a postal address to ease sorting of mail. Also, Zip codes and postal codes means essentially the same thing. Zip code is used more in the USA.

There are several benefits of using a correct postal code. One of the advantages is that when ordering for items from stores like Aliexpress, Amazon, Gearbest etc. it ensures that items are delivered to the closest post office within your location for easy retrieval of the item.
