One of the easiest ways to improve the success of your mail order business is to offer customers more flexible ways to pay.

Cash on Delivery is a convenient and accessible payment option for your customers as they can pay for and collect your items at more than 3,800 Post Offices across the country.

We can collect payments on your behalf for the postage and Cash on Delivery fee only, payment for the item only, or both.

How Cash on Delivery works

Using Cash on Delivery is as easy as 1,2,3:

  2. The item will be delivered to your customer's nearest outlet and they'll be informed they have a Cash on Delivery item waiting for collection
  3. When they arrive to collect the item, we'll process a payment on your behalf and any remittances will be sent back to you via Money Order
