WNS - The WADP Numbering System
The WADP Numbering System (WNS), with its respective bilingual (English and French) website www.wnsstamps.post, is the central register of official postage stamps issued by the UPU designated operators.
It aims at promoting the legal stamp market by allowing the public as well as all players in the philatelic market (catalogue publishers, collectors, stamp dealers, philatelic press) to verify the authenticity of their postage stamps.
Besides, the WNS website allows easier thematic search by collectors through themes and sub-themes accessible via a multi-country website.
Finally, it serves as a commercial tool to promote sales by providing direct links to the philatelic shops of designated operators around the world and fosters direct customer/dealer relationships.
