Gone (mostly) are the days when philatelists waited around mail boxes (Figure 1) or made a commute to the neighbourhood stamp shop, to add to their collection. Indeed, the internet has revolutionised all aspects of human well being, including the pursuit of stamps and other collectibles. At present, more philatelists prefer to purchase stamps online than via any other route, and a variety of outlets are available, ranging from governmental bodies, such as postal agencies that produce and distribute stamps to independent vendors, databases, auction houses, online catalogues and others.
