UPS billing options give you the flexibility to choose your payment method or indicate the method of payment that best suits your customers.
Bill Shipper: The Shipper pays all shipping charges, including additional UPS service charges.
Bill Receiver: The consignee pays all the shipping charges. The receiver must be located in Canada and have an active UPS Account. A service charge of $6.50 CAD applies.
Bill Third Party: The shipper may request that the shipper's portion of the shipping charges be billed to an alternative party. The alternative party must have an active UPS Account. A service charge of $6.50 CAD applies.
For all billing options:
The shipper must notify the consignee prior to shipping if any option other than Shipper is selected; the billing option required must be indicated on the appropriate UPS pickup record in the space provided.
The shipper is liable for payment in the event of non-payment by the consignee or the alternative party.
