Registration as an individual
To use the Services, you'll first need to register for a MyPost Account. You can register at a Post Office, or on our Website or via the App. A MyPost Account is a personal account specific to you in your capacity as an individual and cannot be shared with any other person. You'll need to provide a personal email address as part of the process.
When registering for a MyPost Account, you must fill in all mandatory fields, using accurate, complete and up-to-date information. If any of your information changes, you'll need to let us know via the MyAccount page on the Website.
Use of Services for a business or organisation
Your MyPost Account is unique to you and is not transferable to any other person. You'll need to choose a unique password - keep it safe and don't share it with anyone else. The email address you supply will become your MyPost Account user name.
You are solely responsible for all activities that occur through the use of your MyPost Account by you or any person acting on your behalf. This includes any transactions that are processed or conducted through your MyPost Account. You must keep secure, and must not share, any login details for your MyPost Account. If you become aware of any unauthorised access or use of your MyPost Account, you must let us know immediately. If your negligent acts or omissions result in unauthorised access to your MyPost Account, you are solely responsible for all transactions conducted through your account during the unauthorised access.
THIS IS A BINDING AGREEMENT between Australian Postal Corporation ABN 28 864 970 579 (which we'll refer to in this document as 'Australia Post', 'we', 'us', or 'our') and any person ('you' or 'your') who registers a MyPost Account.
In consideration for us giving you access to and use of:
(a) your MyPost Account,
(b) the Website, or
(c) the Services
you agree to be bound by and abide by the terms and conditions set out in:
(ii) Australia Post's Website Terms & Conditions, and
(iii) any Additional Terms.
Having a MyPost Account gives you access to a number of different Services. Each Service that we provide will be governed by:
|2.3||Fees and charges
Registering for a MyPost Account is free, but there may be fees and charges for other Services we provide to you. Those fees and charges will be specified on the website or in the Additional Terms applicable to each Service. Fees and charges may be varied at any time at Australia Post's discretion by giving you reasonable notice of the change via email and/or the website.
|2.4||Changes, withdrawal and cessation
We reserve the right to change, or temporarily or permanently withdraw any Service. We'll give you notice if this happens in accordance with clause 13.6. To the extent possible under the law, and subject to clause 8, we will not be liable to you for any loss, damage, cost or expense you may incur as a result of the exercise of our rights under this clause 2.4.
|2.5||Online support and advice
We may, from time to time, as part of the Services we provide, either through the Website or through other online resources, offer support or advice regarding our Services or the products offered by us. You acknowledge that any such information or advice provided by us is general in nature, and is provided for general information purposes only. We do not represent that any such information or advice is suitable for your particular circumstances or purposes. It is up to you to determine whether the information or advice is suitable for your particular circumstances or purposes, and whether or not you should act in reliance on, or in accordance with, that information or advice.
Once you've registered your MyPost Account, you have the choice to apply for a MyPost Card.
To apply for a MyPost card you'll need to undertake an identity check. In most cases you can do this online, by providing a form of identity, which we, or one of our service providers, will verify. If your identity check isn't successful online, you will be required to complete the identity check at a Post Office.
Your MyPost Card can be used:
You agree to keep your MyPost Card issued in respect of your MyPost Account secure and ensure that no one else uses it. Your MyPost Card is not transferable.
You are solely responsible (and liable) for all activities conducted through your MyPost Card, whether or not you authorised such activities. You must notify us immediately if you become aware of any unauthorised use of your MyPost Card.
|4.1||Internet and Email Access
To access and use the Services, you'll need to have access to the internet and email. Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) ,not Australia Post, is responsible for providing internet access (subject to any agreement you have with them), and you are responsible, and solely liable, for any account charges or other costs associated with obtaining internet access and the ISP's service.
You agree to provide us with all the information we need to provide the Services and you must make sure that all information is accurate and complete. We won't be liable for any loss, damage, cost or expense that arises from any inaccuracy, omission or other defect in any such information (including in any Data).

(ii) negligent, malicious or wilful acts or omissions by third parties (including our third party service providers) but not including any fraudulent conduct engaged in on behalf of or on the part of Australia Post;
