Invoices and letters

You can receive letters and invoices in electronic form to OmaPosti from the senders of your choice. These letters may be, for example, letters from the authorities, invoices, payslips or healthcare documents. You will get a notification of an incoming letter or invoice to the email address associated with your username. The letters and invoices arriving in OmaPosti are handled in compliance with mail, correspondence and bank secrecy, as well as the information security policy of the data protection ombudsman and Posti Group. We use standardized data transfer methods and secure connections.

How are the letters targeted?

Electronic letters are targeted to OmaPosti based on the name and address. A company or organization may alternatively use a personal identity number for targeting.

Targeting letters to OmaPosti based on the name and address requires that the recipient information on the letter exactly matches the information you have given Posti. You can check the contact details Posti has in your OmaPosti settngs and on the “Own information” page.

If your name is incorrect, please contact Posti Customer Service.

Targeting electronic letters to OmaPosti is disabled for information security reasons if more than one person with the same surname or first name as the letter’s recipient lives or has lived in the address on the letter within the past year.

Paying invoices

You can pay your invoices in OmaPosti using different methods.

• Pay directly in OmaPosti with a debit card, Pivo or the “Change the due date” function • Pay outside OmaPosti and mark the invoice as paid Paying with debit card You can pay most of your invoices in OmaPosti with a Finnish debit card. We recommend making a debit card payment at least 3 days before the due date of the invoice. The due date of the invoice may be passed due to a delay in the forwarding of the payment. Please check the consequences related to the passing of the due date (for example late payment interest) directly from the issuer of the invoice. Note! Not all senders of invoices currently accept payment with a debit card in OmaPosti. In these cases, we recommend copying the barcode on the invoice and using it to pay. Paying with Pivo Customers of Osuuspankki who use the OmaPosti application for iOS or Android and have the Pivo application installed on their phone have the option to pay with Pivo. A Pivo payment is charged from the account immediately.

Changing the due date

Use of the “Change the due date” function is currently in its pilot phase in the OmaPosti android application. You can use the function to postpone the due date by 2 weeks. If you change the due date, Collector Bank will pay the invoice on your behalf and send you a new invoice. The due date of the new invoice is 14 days after the current due date.

Copying the barcode

If the invoice has a barcode, you can use it to easily pay the invoice outside OmaPosti. Finding the barcode:

  • The OmaPosti browser version: check the invoice as active and the barcode will show up in the invoice information.

  • The OmaPosti application: open the invoice and click on the three dot menu in the top right corner. You will be able to copy the barcode from the menu.

Mark as paid

OmaPosti displays a notification on the day the invoice is due. The notification bubble will remain in the user interface for some time after the due date has passed. The purpose of the bubble is to serve as a reminder of the due date. If you have paid the invoice elsewhere, it is a good idea to mark it as paid. Marking the invoice as paid:

• The OmaPosti browser version: check the invoice as active. Click on the three dot menu in the top right corner of the invoice. Check the “Paid” box. • The OmaPosti application: open the invoice, click on the three dot menu in the top right corner and select “Mark as paid”.

Due date reminders

The OmaPosti service will remind you of the due date of an invoice and you can pay it directly through OmaPosti. Netposti did not have this function, and it has caused concern to many customers who are used to Netposti. If you pay the invoice using the OmaPosti payment function, the invoice will be automatically marked as paid. If you have paid the invoice outside OmaPosti, you can mark it as paid manually: 1. Open the invoice 2. Click on the three dot menu on the top right corner of the invoice 3. Check the “Paid” box You can also archive or delete the invoice.

Receiving electronic letters and invoices

After you activate OmaPosti, Posti will be able to deliver letters and invoices addressed to you to OmaPosti in an electronic form. In other words, OmaPosti serves as an electronic alternative to your traditional mailbox. You can determine which senders you want to receive letters from in electronic form only by clicking on “Sender selections” in the OmaPosti settings. Your selections will be forwarded to senders who use the OmaPosti service. Your selection determines whether you will receive the letters in electronic form only. Each sender determines which of their letters may be received electronically. For example, you can receive invoices from some companies in electronic form, but other communications still only on paper. If you want to receive letters only in electronic form, and the company in question uses this OmaPosti function, their paper letters will be completely replaced with electronic ones. In other cases, you will receive a paper letter in addition to the electronic letter or, from some senders, only a paper letter. Letters and invoices that are sent to you as a paper letter in addition to an electronic letter will be accompanied by the following text:

Please note that if you receive an invoice both on paper and in electronic form, the electronic letter will show up in your OmaPosti before the paper letter reaches your mailbox. Be careful not to pay the same invoice twice, first electronically and then in paper form.

How are the letters created?

The OmaPosti electronic letters and invoices are created from the electronic files (electronic letter materials) that the sender delivers to their printing operator and which are used as the basis for printed letters that are placed in envelopes and mailed. An electronic letter based on these materials is also forwarded to recipients who use OmaPosti. No paper letter will be printed if the sender uses the OmaPosti electronic letter service and the recipient has specified in OmaPosti that they would only like to receive an electronic copy. Otherwise, if the sender so desires, a paper letter will be printed and mailed in addition to the electronic letter delivered to OmaPosti.

All of this happens automatically within the IT system from the sender to OmaPosti, and the secrecy of correspondence is not compromised at any stage. The electronic letter is usually delivered to OmaPosti about 1–2 days before the paper letter is received in the mailbox.

The OmaPosti archive

OmaPosti gives you access to a free archive of your own. You can store letters and invoices in the OmaPosti archive for as long as you continue to use the service. The electronic letters and invoices in the archive are arranged by date. You will be able to easily look up any electronic letter or invoice by using the handy search function. You can print, save or remove electronic letters and invoices from the archive at any time. When you pay an invoice or mark it as paid, the invoice is automatically moved into the archive. You can archive arrived invoices, letters and parcels in OmaPosti. The archiving function works somewhat differently depending on the channel. Archiving individual items, browser version and applications 1. Open the item you would like to archive 2. Click on the three dot menu 3. Click on “Archive” Archiving multiple items, browser version 1. Click on “Edit” in the Inbox view 2. Select the items you want to archive 3. Choose all items on the list that you want to archive 4.

Tap on all the items you want to archive 3. Click on the archiving icon at the top of the page

Termination of use of the service

OmaPosti is a part of Posti’s electronic customership and you can terminate the service by terminating Posti’s electronic customership on the “Own information” page. The termination period is 14 days. When the termination period begins, all your electronic delivery method selections will be canceled and your letters will be delivered in paper form in the future. You may still receive some individual queued letters in OmaPosti during the termination period. After the termination period, your archives will be deleted.
