In the Philippines, a ZIP code is used by the Philippine Postal Corporation (PhilPost) to simplify the distribution of mail. While its function similar with the ZIP Codes used in the United States, its form and usage are quite different. The use of ZIP codes in the Philippines is not mandatory, however it is highly recommended by the PhilPost. Also, unlike American ZIP Codes, the Philippine code is a four-digit number representing two things: in Metro Manila, a barangay within a city or city district (as in the case for Manila), and outside Metro Manila, a municipality or city. Usually, more than one code is issued for areas within Metro Manila, and provincial areas are issued one code for each municipality and city, with some rare exceptions such as Dasmariñas in Cavite, which has three Z
