DPD releases the consignment to the recipient only after payment of the price the customer has specified for the goods. The client bears all risks connected with non-payment or improper payment of COD and DPD may not be held liable for these. COD may be paid in cash or by credit card. Only couriers equipped with card terminals accept credit card payment. In case of credit card payment, the recipient accepts that DPD will send the payment certificate electronically to the e-mail address given by the recipient. The maximum cash amount of COD is HUF 300,000 (three hundred thousand forints) in cash. There is no limit for credit card payment. The charge for the service is payable even if the consignment is not handed over. Money paid in COD is transferred and accounted for once weekly, within seven banking days of collection. The sender is not entitled to interest for this period.
