Automat labels the Netherlands
First automat labels in Heemstede.

On 6 November 2006 the first location of a new type of POST SHOP was opened by TNT POST in the town of Heemstede, a little south of Haarlem. Two new identical automats, manufactured by the firm Wincor Nixdorf, produce a new kind of automat labels The automats print the value and the number PK000002 on the labels, but no date. On labels for foreign destinations, the text PRIORITY can be printed on the blank strip to the left.
The automats also produce labels with the barcode for the destination for packages within The Netherlands. On these labels a date is printed on the left hand upper corner. The automats accept eurocoins and bills up to 20 euro's and they return the change. It is also possible to use a debet card or a credit card. With each sale the automat delivers a receipt. The latest information is that a second POST SHOP will be opened on 10 November 2006 in the city of Nijmegen, close to the border with Germany. The labels from this location will show the number PK000001. The Shop will be open to collectors as of 14.00 hours. Regular patrons can use the new location starting 11 November 2006. A detailed report about the new automats and the experiences on the first day of use will appear shortly in Postaumaat Bulletin 133.

Postage label the Netherlands
From 14-08-06 a new basevalue €1,12 at the postoffices

Surprisingly is the announcement of TPG postoffice, from Monday the 14th August 2006 the lowest value you can get from a Postage label machine is 1,12. The last day of the normal values 0,39 and 0,78 is Saturday the 12th of August. This is also for the low (additional)values 0,02 - 0,05 - 0,10 etc.
Warning!: this accounts only for the postoffices (recognicable by PK in front of the number on the left hand topside). It all looks like that values below 1,12 will be common at the TPG-servicepoints (SP) and the TPG-businesspoints (BP)

Postoffice visits on the 14th, 15th and 16th proved the programs of the Postage label machines weren't adjusted to the new bottom value of €1,12. Low values were still available. Postoffice employees got instructions to sell stamps instead of postage labels below that value. It now appeares to be to introduce the adjustments region by region in the postage label machines. Which can take a little while. At this moment it is not yet known what the last date will be of the values below €1,12.

New type automat.

On dates not yet known, in the first half of November 2006, a new automat of Wincor Nixdorf will be placed in shopping centres in Heemstede and Nijmegen. Probably there will be a new design of automat label used. Based on the image, the payment is only possible with a chipcard or creditcard, not with cash. Wether it's an ATM-automat or an ABAS type like the one used in Houten is still unclear.
