Delivery to households

  • In the case of complaints amounting to more than 0.5% in A and B areas or more than 1% in C areas, Austrian Post reserves the right to stop delivering regional publications to all households and instead delivering to advertising clients only. For the complaint rate, we will take into account all complaints in a specific postcode area in relation to all delivery points for that particular postcode area. Complaints received in the 12 months prior to the publication of the list mentioned in the paragraph below will be taken into account.
  • The updated list of distribution areas affected by this policy is published three months before it becomes effective, i.e. on 1 January as well as on 1 July of each calender year on www.post.at/medienpost
  • It is the clients' duty to inform themselves about any excluded distribution areas ahead of time.

Supplements

These include supplements and inserts printed solely in the interest of the publisher. TV and radio programmes are also considered supplements. There will be no additional supplement fee if the supplement is part of the newspaper or magazine. They are simply included in the weight calculation for the newspaper or magazine.

Inserts

These include all inserts added to newspapers or magazines on behalf of third parties against payment. Several inserts by one client are considered to be one insert, as long as they are placed in a sealed envelope or tightly bound together.

A separate insert fee will be charged (see "insert fees". The maximum number of inserts is four. The total weight of all promotional inserts by third parties must not exceed 200g.

The following items are considered third-party inserts:
