Nga ara hei pōti

Ko te tangata e taea tōna ingoa te tohu i te rārangi tā i te wāhi pōti, ka hoatu ki a ia he pepa pōti taketake.

Ko te tangata kāore e kitea i te rārangi tā, me te hunga e pōti i waho kē o te wāhi pōti, me pōti rātou i tētahi pōti motuhake. Kei roto i ngā pepa pōti motuhake he puka whakapuakanga, me whakaoti me haina hoki e te kaipōti. Tērā ētahi take kāore pea e kitea he kaipōti i te rārangi tā – hei tauira, mēnā i rēhita ia i muri i te rā karanga pōtitanga, i whakarārangitia i tētahi rohe pōti kē, kei te rārangi huna, kāore rānei i rēhitatia.

Ko ngā kaipōti ka pīrangi kia āwhinatia hei pānui, hei tohu rānei ngā pepa pōti, ka taea te āwhina e tētahi hoa, whanaunga, āpiha pōtitanga rānei i te wāhi pōti.

Ka wātea ki ngā kaipōti tōmua e wehe atu ana i Aotearoa i mua i te tīmatanga o te pōti tōmua he ratonga whāiti mai i te 6 Mahuru i te Āpiha Whakahoki Pōti.

Ko ngā kaipōti kua tā ki te rārangi kaipōti kei te wāhi pōti, kāore he tikanga kia mahia he whakapuakanga ā-tuhi kia pōti tōmua rātou.

Ina kāhore i rēhita te kaipōti, ka āhei ia ki te whakakī i te puka rēhita i te wāhi pōti tōmua, mā te rēhita tuihono rānei, i tētahi PostShop, i te Kairēhita o ngā Kaipōti rānei.
