The price for one card is € 2.50; you can pay via credit card or paysafecard.
And this service is not only available during the Christmas season. At, or under the “Online Services” menu item on Österreichische Post AG’s website,, you can provide online text for letters, post cards and even facsimiles throughout the year.
