Cypriots Think Post Office Charges Too Much for Sending Packages

NICOSIA – Sending parcels through the mail on Cyprus costs too much, post office users said in a survey conducted by the Office of Electronic Communications & Postal Regulations (OCECPR) to get their opinions.

The survey, conducted from October to December 2002 included answers from 1002 people and 508 small and medium enterprises (SME’s) about using postal services, said The Financial Mirror.

It found that 95 percent of them used postal services, up 2 percent from the previous year when the COVID-19 pandemic was more severe, and that while Cypriots thought the cost of sending letters was okay, for packages it wasn’t.

But 75 percent of then didn’t compare prices with other providers although 35 percent of the business owners did, not said whether it’s because they likely send more packages more often and costs can mount up otherwise.

At the same time, most SMEs do not consider the fees of the Cyprus Post Office to be high, while 35 percent of businesses believe the fees of private providers are high as an option.

But individuals and SME’s said they were generally more satisfied getting deliveries from private companies than from the state-run Cyprus Post but the reasons weren’t given.
