Pay for postage online

You can pay for the postage for registered mail online. For this, you buy an address label in Online Porto, which you then print out and put on the letter. The postage is included.

Advantages of buying postage online:

  • The price is lower when you buy online.
  • Easy administration when registering the sender and recipient.
  • Printing of address label (as with parcels).
  • Possibility of electronic confirmation for posting the item to PostNord (replaces postal receipt/special receipt).
  • Possibility of notifying the recipient that a registered letter is on its way.

Can I send whatever I want?

You can send anything, with the following exceptions:

How do I send the letter?

  • If you are a private customer, you can hand in your registered letter at the post office. If you have not purchased the postage online, your letter will be labeled with a barcode that you can use to track it. When handing in the letter, you can obtain a receipt, on which you fill in the sender and the recipient. These are then confirmed by us.
  • If you are a business customer, you can hand in the letter with a shipping document at your nearest letter terminal.

Do you want to track your shipment?

If you have your shipping reference number, you can easily track your item of mail. The shipping reference number is stated on the receipt you received when you handed in the letter for mailing.

You can see when your registered letter has left Denmark. When you send something abroad, you can also see when the consignment has reached the destination country and been delivered to the recipient. Please see the country facts bar for more information (in Danish).
