Australia Post floats user pays model

Australians may have to pay $30 a year for daily mail delivery or face a less frequent service.  Recently, Australia Post chairman John Stanhope said a user-pays postal system was a viable option after the company's letter operations ­suffered a $218 million loss last year with letter volumes falling by more than 25% from 2008.  Under a user-pays model, residents would pay a yearly fee in addition to the stamp price, which increased from 60¢ to 70¢ in March. Alternatively, they could opt not to pay the fee and switch to a cheaper three day a week mail delivery system.  Fears that mail volumes could completely disappear within the next decade would put the iconic role of the ‘postie’ in jeopardy.
