The invoice will be sent to the email address you provided or to your address on the National Register, depending on the method of distribution chosen at the point of purchase. When choosing the invoicing option, you can choose to pay the full amount immediately or alternatively log in to bill.lindorff.no and apply for a part-payment agreement.

In order to use the service, you must have a permanent and official Norwegian residence at the time of purchase and be at least 18 years old. The payment method is only available to individuals, and assumes that you are in good financial standing and have a good payment history.
