Suitability for automatic processing

To process your advertising mailings, Deutsche Post uses sorting systems that are able to sort shipments fully automatically. So that DIALOGPOST shipments are suitable for machine processing, both basic formats, Standard and Groß \[Large], must be fully suitable for automatic processing.

DIALOGPOST items that differ from the shapes and dimensions of the specified basic formats, as well as items that do not have straight outer edges, may be posted as creative special formats.
This incurs a surcharge for non-machinability.

If items cannot be automatically processed and lead to disruption during machine processing, the surcharge incurred can be imposed within four weeks of the day of posting for the entire posting volume of the order.

If they are not fully suitable for automatic processing, the following surcharge will apply per shipment:

  Surcharge per item

Optimize postage costs

If you do not reach the relevant minimum volumes, you can pay the difference. This is based on the net shipment charge (charge for the individual items).

If there are variations, the surcharge is based on the shipment with the lowest weight.
