Send letters and small packages in Norway
Common letter can be many things; a nice greeting, a book or a T-shirt. The shipping price is determined by weight and size, and is the same regardless of where in Norway it is to be sent. Shipping time is two to three days, and it depends on where you ship from and to.
Send letters and small packages with stamp postage
Stamps are the most affordable shipping option for shipments under 350 g, and the easiest way is to buy digital stamps here. Then you get a code that you write on the shipment, and you can choose whether you want to send from your own mailbox or deliver yourself at Posten.
Alternatively, you can choose Norgespakke™ if you need tracking or compensation for loss or damage.
5 tips when sending something
- Write the address clearly and correctly:
Addresses are written in slightly different ways, depending on the type of home and location. Read more about correct addressing.
- Choose the right packaging for your content:
Use envelope, gray paper or boxes. A shipment is reloaded several times before it reaches the recipient. The packaging must therefore be solid. We sell both small and large boxes. Read more about packaging and our boxes.
- Find a measuring tape and a baking scale; size and weight determine the price.
Our maximum size for letters:
Length + width + thickness: 90 cm
Length: 60 cm
Weight: 2 kg
(If the shipment is larger or heavier than this, you can send it as a Norgespakke™.)
NB: Look in the column for more than 7 cm thick in the price list for letters that are more than 35.3 cm long or more than 25 cm wide.
We also have a minimum size for letters: 9 x 14 cm.
For roll format, there are separate measurements:
Length: 90 cm
Length + double diameter: 104 cm
Minimum size for a roll:
Length: 10 cm
Length + double diameter: 17 cm
Not everything can be sent by Posten and it is your responsibility that the contents of the letter or package are legal. Read more about what is dangerous or forbidden to send.

Valuable content that you want to insure.

You pay domestic postage and in addition you fill in customs documentation if the shipment contains gifts or goods of value.
