Shipper Paid Services
Shipper Paid Services is an ACS fulfillment option that allows parcel mailers to receive an electronic address correction and pay forwarding or return postage via their ACS account rather than charging the customer.
Who are Shipper Paid Services for?
Package and Shipping Services parcels and Bound Printed Mail flats that must be forwarded will arrive as “Postage Due” at the new address. If the addressee refuses the piece to avoid paying the forwarding postage, the parcel is returned to the mailer, and both the forwarding and return postage is charged. Shipper Paid Service provides an option for the shipper to pay the forwarding postage via the ACS account, minimizing the chance that the parcel will be refused.
