- COD (Cash on Delivery) for a letter
With COD (Cash on Delivery), you can ensure that you receive payment for the item in your account before it is handed over to the recipient. You can add the cash on delivery service to Priority and Economy letters and Insured Items.
We are responsible for forwarding the COD amount that you have specified to a Finnish bank account within 2 to 4 banking days from the payment. The maximum amount of COD is EUR 2,000.
For a payment with a bank reference, the reference number is transmitted to the recipient of the payment; for a payment without a reference number, the payer’s name is transmitted. IBAN account numbers and bank-identifying BIC codes, complying with the SEPA regulations, are used for COD (Cash on Delivery) items. If the account or reference information is incorrect, we accept no responsibility for delays or losses.
There is a separate address label for COD (Cash on Delivery) items. You can add an electronic notice of arrival to a Cash on Delivery Letter.
From the beginning of 2019, domestic and international letters with address labels can be ordered through the Posti SmartShip ordering channel, or through another EDI interface, and other ordering and payment methods and multi-section address labels will no longer be in use.
