Q-What is the difference between postal and Zip codes?
A-They are both multicharacter codes for sorting and delivering mail.

"Postal code" is the generic term for such a code.

"ZIP Code" (Zone Improvement Program Code) is the (now expired) servicemark of the postal codes used by the United States' Postal Service (USPS). A Zip Code is therefore a postal code for a U.S. address.

If you are interested in the difference between the U.S. and Canadian postal codes--

Zip code: (from Wikipedia)
The first digit represents a certain group of US states.
The second and third digits together represent a region in that group (or perhaps a large city).
The fourth and fifth digits represent a group of delivery addresses within that region.

Canadian postal code: (from Wikipedia) The format is letter-number-letter, space, number-letter-number. The first three characters are called the Forward Sortation Area (FSA). The last three characters are called the Local Delivery Unit (LDU).

It´s enough to you understand that (usually) between countries you talk about postal codes. Within the country you will have the ZIP Code" (Zone Improvement Program Code).
