The function is in the pilot phase
The function is currently in the pilot phase and only works in the Android application. This means that you see installment functions only with the Android operating system if you belong to the pilot user group. The pilot function is assigned to some users at random and cannot be specifically assigned to a certain user. The aim of the pilot is to collect experiences of the use of the function and to ensure that it works smoothly before introducing it to all users. Using the function is not obligatory.
If you use OmaPosti with another device or through the OmaPosti website, you will not see invoice-related installment functions. However, you can pay your Collector Bank invoice in full through other channels.
