Sweden to allow text messages instead of stamps

System returns a confirmation code

The Swedish postal service is considering a new service that will allow customers to pay for postage using text messages rather than traditional stamps. According to a report in The Local, the messaging system will respond with a coded number, which can be written on a letter as proof of postage payment.

Officials have yet to finalize the plans or set a date for its deployment, though the launch is unlikely to occur before the summer, according to Anders Asberg, the head of marketing and development for the Swedish postal service.

The plans were likely inspired by neighbor Denmark, which will implement a similar service beginning in April.
