Do NOT mistake the $1, $2, $3 or $4 stamp you may use ON your Claim contract, for the postage you will be required to buy in order to mail your Registered Mailing envelope containing your Claim contract (from yourself to yourself). Registered mailings can be somewhat costly, but are key and may be of various postage fees, for example: $14.55.
QR CODES, DIGITAL STAMPS AND OTHER DETAILS:
For Registered Mailings the post office attaches a Registered mail sticker and to your envelope with a long digit numerical value assigned to it. This becomes your vessel number.
Post offices in countries like Australia, Canada, USA or Europe, may give you a Digital barcode or QR square box code, with a 8-16 digit or other long numerical value assigned to it FOR BOTH YOUR POSTAGE FEE AND YOUR REGISTERED MAIL NUMBER. To avoid confusion, verify with your post office which is your Registered Number and not the postage fee code. This is critical since the Registered number is used on your envelope (not the postage fee number). Your Regiesterd Id number becomes your Claim vessel number used on your future contracts.
Get a copy of the Registered Mail number on your receipt. If you do NOT SEE THE ACTUAL NUMBER ON YOUR RECEIPT, ASK YOUR POST OFFICE ATTENDANT FOR THE NUMBER AND WRITE IT ON YOUR RECEIPT OR HAVE THEM DO IT. IN FRONT OF YOU AND BULLET STAMP THE RECEIPT.
In some cases, you may mail your envelope via International Mail- from yourself to yourself. This will also give you your Registered mailing number that Chief will accept- however some post offices frown upon this procedure since it is being shipped to yourself.
NEVER cut out, glue or attach any digital stamp or QR code to your claim. Simply provide a copy of it when you mail your 2 Claims to chief.
