Financial life cycle

In addition DPD is the only parcel and express service provider which enables customers to check the financially relevant details of their shipment online, together with the standard parcel tracking service. On the basis of this financial history shippers can see, for example, when the DPD driver collected the C.O.D. amount and when the money was transferred.

When your C.O.D. parcel reaches the collection depot, all the relevant data is immediately recorded and sent on to the delivery depot. As soon as the C.O.D. amount has been paid in at the delivery depot, the remaining stages of the financial transaction are automatically activated.

You can follow the digitalized financial life cycle here on the DPD website in the Tracking section. This creates transparency and security along the whole route of your C.O.D. parcel, right up to the point where the money is transferred to your account.
