Question and answers about Norgespakke™ small
If the package is picked up by the mailman or received over the counter, we must do a search to find it. Did you include sender or recipient information on the shipment? Are there any special features on the package? Please contact our customer service.
No, only payment solution over the web and the code you receive is valid for this service.
No, but you will receive an SMS confirming the submission when it has arrived at the terminal.
Yes, we must have a mobile number on the recipient. We have chosen to notify this type of shipment only via the Posten app or SMS. Then the recipient receives a faster notification that the shipment is on its way, when it has been placed in the mailbox or where the recipient can pick up the shipment if it does not fit.
You can not order pickup from your own mailbox if the shipment does not fit. Deliver the package to Posten.
You can, for example, enter into an agreement on a fixed place of delivery at home and have packages left where you want, or buy a larger mailbox if possible.
No, not yet, but it's coming soon.
We need the code to send the package through our systems. Contact our customer service for assistance.
The package weighs more than 5 kg or has a size exceeds 35 x 25 x 12 cm. The package has been converted into an ordinary Norgespakke and invoiced for the intermediate plus handling costs.
Updating in tracking only takes place when the package has been processed at the terminal.
Unfortunately, this is primarily a service between individuals and single packages. You can of course also use the service as a company, but then this is the limitation.
If the package exceeds the maximum size (35 cm long, 25 cm wide and 12 cm thick), it does not fit in a regular mailbox and will be changed to Norgespakke™ large. The package will be forwarded for delivery at the recipient's collection point and not to the mailbox. You will be billed for missing shipping and a surcharge.
No, cash on delivery can only be used on Norgespakke™ large.
Write the code preferably with a black marker on a light background. Write it over 3 lines in the middle of the broadcast and be careful so that you get all the numbers and in the right order. You do not need to write the recipient's address, but feel free to write your own address on the back.
