The prices of Posti's letter services paid in cash will change on April 3, 2017.
The increasing popularity of digital communications is reducing delivery volumes considerably. In 2016, the volume of addressed letters decreased by 7 percent from the previous year. Posti is improving the efficiency of its operations in many ways in order to curb costs. The fewer items there are to deliver, the higher the picking, sorting and delivery costs of an individual item.
No-value indicator stamps are always accepted
The price of a domestic card or letter weighing no more than 50 g will be EUR 1.30 as of April 3 (earlier EUR 1.20). All domestic no-value indicator stamps purchased before that will also be accepted without additional stamps after the change.
The price of an international card or letter in the Priority class weighing no more than 20 g will be EUR 1.40 as of April 3 (earlier EUR 1.30). The international no-value indicator stamps purchased before that will be accepted in Priority letters.
Old 1st and 2nd class no-value indicator stamps can still be used. Their value corresponds to the domestic no-value indicator stamp and will be EUR 1.30 as of April 3.
The prices of cards sent from the postcard application will not change. You can also send a genuine card based on your own photograph from the application. The application can be downloaded from iOS or Android application stores.
The prices of Posti's forwarding and mail delivery interruption services and some other letter services will also change.
The changes will not affect the prices of Posti's contract customers.
