The UPS Consignee Billing program is a contractual offering that applies only to United States and Puerto Rico shipment origins and destinations. UPS Consignee Billing is not a substitute for UPS Freight Collect/Bill Receiver.
A consignee is a UPS customer who has agreed to pay your shipping charges. A consignee must have a UPS contract for consignee billing, and you must have the consignee's approval to use this billing option.
This payment method allows you to bill the charges for a specified shipment to a consignee who has agreed to pay the charges. All shipping charges are billed to the consignee's UPS account number, except charges such as declared value for carriage, additional handling, verbal delivery confirmation, and Saturday delivery. These charges are billed to your shipper UPS account number.
To use this feature, the Bill Consignee payment method must be enabled in My UPS for the consignee. Go to your UPS Address Book in your My UPS profile to confirm that the Consignee Billable checkbox has been selected for any individual or business.
