Postage due stamps were used in New Zealand from the 1st of December 1899 to speed up the collection of short-paid postage. The stamps were applied by the post office delivering the mail. The value that was charged was normally double the amount of postage the mail was short by.

Most probably as a result of plate wear, the low value postage due stamps were redesigned in 1902 while high values from the 1899 issue continued in use until 1916.
