How often do you weigh parcels at home and then print out the postage, so you can pop it in a post-box and avoid a lengthy queue at the post-office? Now there's an even easier way to pay for postageā€”in Sweden and Denmark at least, where customers will be able to pay via SMS.

Once the customer sends an SMS to the postal service (with the charge showing up on their phone bill), they receive a unique code back which can be written on the parcel to confirm payment. It's launching on the 1st of April in Denmark, with Sweden sometime after summer. [The Local]
