Comments

The postcode team built the website extensively throughout the world. The website currently provides postcode inquiry service around hundreds of countries in 50+ languages. There are more than 40,000,000 postcode / ZIP code data in http://PostCodeBase.com.

The postcode information for Jamaica are clearly stated but cannot be downloaded on the computer due to not being machine readable (PDF, CSV, etc).
