When do you receive payment for customer orders?

The amount collected from the consignee is returned to the sender in accordance with the carrier’s terms and conditions.

Most of our contracts provide for payment every week. There are limitations on transaction amounts. The maximum amounts allowed also depend on the GTCs of each carrier.

What happens if the customer refuses payment or does not have the money on him when the delivery person is at home?

The carrier will make one or two delivery attempts (depending on the GTC and the destination). As the goods are only delivered in exchange for payment at the time of delivery, the parcel will be returned to the sender in the event of refusal by the recipient.
