Cash on delivery - Secure payment for delivery

The cash on delivery service enables you to ensure that the recipient only receives the DHL Paket after payment of the cash on delivery amount. This means that you, as a sender, can be sure that you will receive your money.

Postage not paid

Do you require the recipient to pay the costs of delivery?

With the postage not paid service, you can send your parcel without paying for the postage and the costs are paid for by the recipient. The recipient pays the delivery costs (the price of the postage not paid service) upon receipt of the shipment. If the recipient refuses payment (and therefore acceptance of the parcel), the parcel will be returned to you and you will be obliged to pay the delivery costs.

The postage not paid service can be combined with the bulky goods service, in which case the delivery costs amount to EUR 38.80. This service cannot be combined with any other services.2

Postage not paid
EUR 15.00 (includes parcel price, flat rate up to 31.5 kg)1

Advice of delivery

Do you require written confirmation of receipt?

By attaching a prepared advice of delivery to your parcel you can ensure that the recipient confirms receipt of the item with their signature. The signed advice of delivery will be sent back to you as confirmation of receipt. The required advice of delivery form is available from your nearest outlet.

The advice of delivery service is not available in combination with postage not paid.

Advice of delivery
+ EUR 1.80 (in addition to the parcel price)1
