Choose your return option

DHL offers three options for providing your customers with a return label so that you can control the return shipping of your goods in accordance with your requirements.

Your customers receive a fully prepared return label with their delivery. If they choose to send an item back, all they have to do is pack it and affix the label. As a further option, you can also have DHL Retoure picked up from you customer's address with a pick-up order.

The customer contacts your customer service department and arranges to return the item with a pick-up order. The DHL delivery employee collects the item from your customer's address on the agreed day, bringing the prepared return label.
