The standardized "Paid" bilingual handstamp was applied in lieu of postage stamps during the first year of the Imperial Post, due to delays in the supply of the first definitive issue of the I.C.P. stamps which were printed in Japan and unavailabe at this time, and shortages of the New Currency surcharges, which were only available on an irregular basis. The "Paid" handstamps were used from February 10, 1897 (Amoy) until the end of 1897, when Postal Circulars Nos. 4 & 5 forbade their use from January 1, 1898.
