Cash on Delivery Letter

Use COD (Cash on Delivery) if you want to ensure that a fee you have determined is collected of the item before it is handed over to the recipient.

When you send a Cash on Delivery Letter, the recipient claims the item from a Posti outlet by paying the preliminary amount you have set. Please note that if you wish to charge other costs in addition to the preliminary amount, for instance the letter’s mailing costs, from the recipient, they must be added directly to the COD (Cash on Delivery) amount.

The sender always pays for the postage fees of the item, or the COD (Cash on Delivery) amount and transportation charge, upon sending.
