Time span: At least 4 hours/distribution
Working days: Wednesday (and Saturday), sorting possible partly already on Tuesday

Distribution days

There is work once or twice a week, on Wednesdays (and on Saturdays). If you are interested in working more often, it is possible to do sorting work for Wednesday’s distribution already partly on Tuesday. This way you will be able to finish, for example, two distribution areas on Wednesday.

Distribution area

Distribution areas change often. Occasional runners usually finish 2–4 distribution areas/distribution day. One area includes on average ca. 250 mail slots.


Runner is given a distribution cart and/or -bag to be used free of charge. The tools significantly help the execution of the distribution.

Sorting of advertisements and city papers

Advertisements are delivered to runners in bundles. The sorting of the distributed advertisements is an essential part of the distribution work. There might be 5–15 different advertisements in the same distribution. Sorting often takes as much time as the distribution itself. Sorting might feel difficult at first, but you will soon learn to handle the products quickly.


Distributing advertisements requires diligence and sustainability. It takes usually 1–2 hours to finish the distribution, depending on the area.


Salary is based on the size of the distributing area and the number of distributed products. Since the distribution area varies, the salary is larger than a normal salary. We pay mileage for car area runners for using their own car. You will need a car for this job.
