Find your ZIP code based on your geographic position or click the map below to find your ZIP code. You should authorize us to use your location to find your postal code. It works for Colombia, Ecuador, the United States, Mexico and Uruguay. For other countries, go to the home page.
You can find your postal code in two ways: 1) authorizing us to know your location and we will inform you what your postal code is 2) browsing the postal code of your country and then filtering by department/state/province and then by city.
Each area of the city is assigned a different code. Read the question above to find the best way to find yours.
Each zip code applies to certain areas in each city. Based on your geolocation, we will locate the approximate address you are at and search which ZIP code area you are in.
In this case we need to locate you on the map. When we have your approximate location we can locate inside that postal zone you are.
If you do not want to authorize the detection of your location, you can go to zip code and browse by country, state, city until you find the ZIP code for your area.
A postal code (also known in several English-speaking countries around the world as ZIP code, PIN Code or Post Code and CEP in Brazil) is a series of letters and digits or both, sometimes including spaces or punctuation marks, included in a postal address with the purpose of ordering the correspondences.
Its use is increasingly popular in the countries of the world. As of February 2005, 117 of the 190 member countries of the Universal Postal Union had postal code systems.
Although postal codes are generally assigned to geographic areas, special codes are sometimes assigned to individual addresses or to institutions that receive large volumes of mail, such as government agencies and large commercial companies. An example is the French CEDEX system.
The development of postal codes reflects the increasing complexity of postal delivery as the populations grew, the built environment became more complex and currently, with the advent of e-commerce the need for established postal zones was significantly increased.
This happened first in the big cities. ZIP codes started with postal district numbers (or postal zone numbers) within large cities. London was subdivided for the first time into 10 boroughs in 1857 and Liverpool in 1864. By World War I, such district or area postal numbers existed in several large European cities. They existed in the United States at least as early as the 1920s, possibly implemented only at the local post office level until WWII.
Classic postal codes from the 1970s are not accurate, cannot be used as a location (i.e. not can be converted to the approximate latitude / longitude of the address). But modern digital maps can generate geocodes (such as Geohash), they can be used as a finer location code with the same number of digits and without an administrative cost.
In addition, classic postal codes are managed by a central authority: this control can be used to make a profit when the data is not opened. For 2016, according to ODI (Open Data Index is a project of Open Knowledge Foundation), only 8% of the emails were opened the codes.
