BE CERTAIN YOUR PRODUCTS GET THERE WITH PROOF OF DELIVERY
An estimated 500,000 letters are lost in the UK post each week. Of these, 400,000 never arrive and 100,000 are over two weeks late. This uncertainty has high cost implications for businesses who regularly send products or important documents.
Whilst a certificate of postage has been standard practice for businesses for many years, this only proves that the product has been posted - not that the customer has received it. As the seller is responsible for getting the item to the customer, proof of delivery offers much more protection – read more about this in our blog.
Not only can the customer track their purchase, proof of delivery also gives the seller certainty that the customer has received it – thanks to a signature or scanned barcode. This means businesses can protect themselves against any lost item claims and the associated refunds.
As proof of delivery services and compensation processes differ between carriers, we’ve already done the comparisons for you.
If you frequently post products, download or print this proof of delivery comparison table as a handy reference guide for use around the office or at home.
