Mpost registration is all about converting your mobile number into a virtual postal address. This will ensure that all your mails are sent to your Mpost address(which is your phone number). To make it much better, when there is a mail for you, you will be contacted by the agents at the post office to go pick your post. Hence, you do not keep going over to the post office to check if there is a dispatch for you like with a physical post office address. Furthermore, you just pay a total of 300 Shillings per year, thus very affordable for many Kenyans.
You can just place the address or rather the postal code as the place you can easily access, as long as there is a post office in the selected location.
