I receive mails (post) which has an extra field on top of my name in the address field. It shows like NLPnnn (where n - numeric).
Some are promo mails from business where I never subscribed or even visited. I thought it could be junk marketing mails, that got my name/address from somewhere. Some of these are addressed to my name and some to, "The valued member".
I couldn't understand how my credit card statement also has the same NLPnnn.
Is it something that is fixed for a house address ?

It's a Round Number. See https://www.nzpost.co.nz/business/sending-within-nz/over-300-letters-documents/bulk-mail-services/volume-presort

Each sequenced mail item must have two codes printed in the address block, as follows:

 

  • Round Number – comprising:

     

    • 3 characters (branch abbreviation)
    • 3 numbers (round abbreviation)
    • minimum 15 spaces
    • 1 number  (NZ Post line area) (e.g. NMS005         6)
  • Postcode - comprising 4 digits (e.g. 6035)
(Edit) Yes, it's a code that refers to your delivery round (not your house). Basically it's for the sorting people to say "ok, this needs to go to Greenhithe sorting centre, and on the Oak Street round" (pretty sure there's no Oak Street in Greenhithe, but you get the gist).

Awesome, thank you.
