Posti reserves the right to charge the fee defined in the price list for the refund of postmarking errors.
Approved postmarking errors are added to the operating assets of the franking machine, and the amount can then be transferred to the machine.
Underpaid items are treated as items with an insufficient transportation charge for the chosen service level or an insufficient transportation charge for the item to be delivered to its destination. The items are usually offered to the recipient with an additional charge composed of a fee for claiming the item and the missing transportation charge.
