From 1 January 2018, Irish post offices will only offer postage at post offices located within the same metro area.
The move is aimed at preventing “post-paid” customers from using post offices in other locations.
What’s the catch?
Irish post office companies were already offering postage as part of the basic service and a fee was charged.
It is not a full payment for the post office, but it is still a small part of a fee.
The post office will not charge customers for their post-paid usage, but the fee will be applied at the point of use.
This is a major change for Irish customers, with some claiming the change is “unfair”.
It comes after a backlash against the change by the postal service and the post industry.
How will the change affect you?
As an example, if you have a post office in Dublin that has a postcode of 710, you will be charged €0.75 per kilogram, up from €0 at present.
However, if your post office is in a different area of Dublin, you’ll be charged a lower rate of €0, up to €0 per kilo, and if your postal service is not in Dublin, it will charge you the same amount.
Where to get help?
Irish Post offices are not the only ones being forced to implement the new pricing model, with other Irish post service providers facing similar changes.
Posties in the UK and the US have also been told to drop their pricing model.
What is Ireland’s post system?
Ireland’s Post Office is the national post service and is the only government agency that has the power to issue and collect post parcels.
It has been in charge of delivering parcels since the 18th century and is responsible for the delivery of parcels to post offices across the country.
How much do post offices charge?
The Post Office charges customers the same as a bank would charge you.
For example, the fee for sending a parcel to a post box is €10, while a post-card to a local post office charges €1.
However this is a fee based on how much money a customer has on their account.
A post office may charge a higher fee for a larger or larger amount of post, depending on how many parcels it has to deliver.
Where do I find a post address?
Post offices in Dublin and parts of the rest of the country will offer post address options on their website.
These post addresses are listed in the same format as a telephone number, but they will not offer phone numbers or personalised numbers.
How do I check my post address online?
The Irish Post Office offers a range of online services, including a postcard service, which lets you print a post card that will be mailed to your post box.
The cost for this service is €3.
The service also lets you enter your postcode online to see where your parcel is to be delivered, as well as to check the status of your parcel.
If your post-box has not been received, it can be returned to the Post Office, although this is more expensive.
If you are unable to access your post address, it is possible to contact your local post offices via email.
However there is no way to track the progress of your parcels.
When is a postbox eligible for a fee?
A post box will not be eligible for the fee until it is returned to its Post Office and is fully functional.
This means that your parcel may not be delivered until it has been fully processed and has been certified as complete.
This process usually takes up to two weeks, depending upon how quickly the PostOffice processes the parcel.
When can I expect a postmark?
The postmaster of each post office must have a “postmark” in order to deliver your parcel to the postmaster’s office.
A “post mark” is a stamped piece of paper that can be found on your parcel, which shows that the parcel has been delivered to the office and that the Postmaster has the proper address to deliver it.
A valid postmark is displayed on a postage stamp before a parcel is delivered to its destination.
What are the benefits of paying for post?
There are several advantages to paying for postage.
First, postage is often cheaper than in the case of the value of your package.
If the Post office offers a free postage service, they will often charge more than a fee, so it may be worth it to spend a little extra to get the postmark.
Second, paying for the postage may also help you save on your package, since you will need to cover the cost of delivering it to the Postal Service.
Third, it may save the Postoffice the cost and inconvenience of waiting for a parcel delivered.
The Post office also collects a small percentage of your postage charge, so if you pay less, it does not have to collect your fee.
