Payment indications

The pricing model is based on

  • The weight of the item

  • Delivery area (areas A, B, C)

  • Batch size

  • Timing of the order (advance order)

Postal codes are divided into three areas (A, B, C) based on their special characteristics, such as population density and cost level. Area A is typically a densely populated area, such as a city center; area C mainly consists of sparsely populated areas.

Prices are also available through ordering channels.

The price of Home Direct includes the carbon neutralization of the emissions caused by the delivery and the transport process from the drop-off location to the addressee. The price does not include, for example, transport from a printing company to the posting place, mail preparation (such as bundling and unitizing), impact area analyses, or campaign surveys.

The payment method is contract-based invoicing. The mailing batch is ordered through Kontakti or Mailing Desktop. Invoicing takes place once a week, unless the customer and Posti have mutually agreed otherwise.

The order is placed through Mailing Desktop or Kontakti. In addition to the price information, you will receive real-time confirmation of an approved delivery time and always the correct mailing instructions.

Changes to the delivery day and services are also subject to a charge, as described above. If you want to change the service you have ordered, cancel the order and place a new one. The charges specified above apply to the cancellation, and the price for the new order will appear in the summary.
