1 Delivery option Pakke i Postkassen

Pakke i postkassen is the recommended default shipping option for small, lower value shipments, as it is the preferred delivery method for recipients for these kind of items.

Mailbox Parcel is slower than Pickup Parcel and Home Delivery. It is uninsured and does not support ID control, age / social control, cooling or other additional services. For deliveries requiring such services, use Home Delivery or Pickup Parcel.

As mailboxes vary in sizes, the maximum size of Mailbox Parcel will not fit in every mailbox. To accommodate this, it is recommended to provide an option in checkout for the additional service Delivery to doorstep, as a fallback solution.

If the user ticks off and then agrees to terms, the mail carrier can leave packages that do not fit in the mailbox in a bag at the door, instead of sending it to the nearest pickup point. When the mail carrier activates bag on door, an additional charge will be added to the delivery. However, this is still cheaper and faster than re-routing to the pickup point.

Delivery to doorstep should also include a textarea to provide an apartment number or description helping the mail carrier make sure the package is left in a bag at the correct door.

Add the property unit number on the label

Adding the property unit number to the label will help ensure that the package will be delivered as a bag on door. We recommend adding this information to the label, either in the second address line, or in the additional information section (additionalAdressInfo).

Text input help text Bruksenhetsnummer … … sier hvilken leilighet i bygningen du bor i. Bokstaven forteller om du bor i U (Underetasje), K (Kjeller), H (Hovedetasje) eller L (Loft). De første to sifrene er etasje, eks: 03, de neste to sifrene forteller hvilket nummer leiligheten din har i denne etasjen. H0301 betyr eksempelvis at boligen ligger i tredje etasje (03), første dør fra venstre (01). Eneboliger med kun én boligenhet har alltid bruksenhetsnummer H0101. Property unit number … … the unit number indicates which flat in the building you live in. The letter indicates if you live on U (the lower floor), K (basement), H (main floor) or L (top floor). Combined with the letter, the first two numbers indicate which floor you live on. The subsequent two numbers indicate your flat number on this floor. For example, H0301 means that the property is on the third floor (03), first door to the left (01). Detached houses with only one residential unit always have unit number H0101.
