Cash on Delivery (C.O.D.)

Rely on UPS to collect payment for your shipment at the time of delivery


UPS will attempt to collect the amount shown on the C.O.D. tag or package label, and then send the payment to you within 20 days. If UPS cannot collect the payment after three attempts, the package will be returned.
