How to send in 3 steps

Prepare your mail


Open the app and tap “registered mail” from the list of products that can be sent. Select the format of your mail item and any extra options, and fill out your sender details and the addressee’s details. 

Print and affix


Complete your order to receive your shipping label in the app and by email. Print your label or pop along to the Post Office to have it printed there and affix it to the envelope as per the instructions.

Post and track your mail


Post your registered mail at a Post Office, a Post Point or in a Red Letterbox (check the collection times). Track your mail item automatically in the app.

Drop by a Post Office or Post Point


Tell the person at the counter you want to send a registered mail. You can take your own envelope or buy one when you get there.

Select the type of registered mail


Tell how you want to send your registered mail: the standard way, with proof of receipt for complete peace of mind or insured if you send something of value.

Track your mail item online


You will receive a proof of sending with the barcode of your mail item. Use this code to see the status of your item at any time in Track & Trace or the My bpost app.

When delivering registered mail and parcels, our postmen are required to ring the doorbell and wait a minimal time. Unfortunately, you might find a failed delivery notice in your letterbox even though you were home. You can file a complaint about this. Keep your failed delivery notice handy because you will need it to complete the form.

The price of registered mail depends on the following factors:

  • weight
  • size
  • type of registered mail

Calculate the price of your registered mail (letter or parcel) with our price calculator.

If the addressee is not home, a failed delivery notice is left behind by the postman. The addressee has 15 calendar days to pick up your registered mail with confirmation of receipt (in the Post Office or Post Point mentioned on the failed delivery notice).

If the addressee does not pick up your mail within 15 calendar days, it will be sent back to you. Make sure that your name and address are clearly written on your shipment.
