Canadian readers can access up to 10 articles on NationalPost.com and its sister site FinancialPost.com for free each month, while international readers can access up to five. The site is optimized for mobile devices, allowing readers to access its content from smartphones and tablets in addition to desktop devices. The newspaper's print subscribers receive unlimited online access upon registering, and the company offers paid subscription options for digital-only customers.
As of 2015, individuals can subscribe to unlimited access to National Post Web content or to an ePaper. The ePaper presents content in an identical fashion to the company's print edition, but in an electronic format. This includes the paper's full Financial Post spreads, which are available through the company's website. The ePaper also features dedicated ePaper apps and access options for Apple, Windows, Android and Blackberry devices and several types of eReaders. The ePaper service also lets users share and comment, create RRS feeds, sign up for email alerts, translate articles and play text as audio.
The company offers an all-access subscription, which includes print home delivery, Web access, and app access for both standard content and ePapers. EPaper access is available as a monthly or yearly subscription, with 14-day trials available. Subscribers can also purchase individual issues at a much higher cost. Digital access is available on a monthly or yearly basis, with a reduced rate for subscribers' first trial month.
