You can now complete e-consignment notes for your parcels to save time before heading to Pos Malaysia branches anywhere

According to the Pos Malaysia website, customers will no longer need to fill in consignment notes manually upon arrival but can opt to do them anywhere beforehand on their Pos Malaysia smartphone app.

This new service would mean that customers can save dropping-off time, especially for bulk deliveries, and not hold up a line at the post office.

The e-consignment forms will also help users keep a history of transactions as well as easily track current shipments on their phone.

Pos Malaysia announced that the new convenience will be available to customers beginning 17 August, but a check by SAYS shows the feature on their app has already been made accessible!

Here's a walkthrough to introduce you to the new service:

1. Download the Pos Malaysia app

It is available on both the App Store and Google Play Store.

To get started, click on the 'New Consignment' button on their homepage.

2. Fill in the sender's and recipient's particulars

Names, phone numbers, and addresses are mandatory to fill in, but not e-mail.

3. Enter the total weight of your parcel and a description of its contents

The app will then generate an estimated price based on the details that you have keyed in.

Lastly, click 'Confirm'.

And there you go!

A summary of your parcel details will appear, followed by a reference number and QR code for you to bring to a Pos Malaysia outlet.

At the post office, scan the QR code at a designated printer and print out the e-consignment label to attach to your parcel before payment at the counter.

The final weight of your parcel will also be determined then. If there are no discrepancies, you're good to go.
