Advanced Search Module

Stamps.org includes a completely rewritten search module for dealers and clubs. This module, while powerful, does function differently from the previous search tools.

The upgraded site is the beginning of a new approach to online communication from the American Philatelic Society. The goal is to develop a modern web presence that is mobile-friendly, well-organized and easy to use.

Here are step-by-step guides on using the search functions:

 


Search Local Clubs by Zip Code

 
To search by zip code:

Step 1:

Navigate to stamps.org/Clubs

 

 

Step 2:

Step 4:

Adjust your zip code search radius and select “Set Filter”

 

 

Step 5:

Select “Search” at the main Club search bar and you should see only the zip code rage you selected.

To remove the filter, remove the zip code from the search and set the filter like Step 4.
