USPS Pay-on-Delivery Returns with EasyPost

EasyPost offers USPS Pay-on-Delivery Returns (PoD) to make returns easy on you AND your customers. With PoD, you don't have to pay postage fees on your USPS return label until the return package is actually delivered back to you. At that time, USPS will determine the actual weight1 of the package. Returns also come with $100 USPS shipping insurance for free, and you can always purchase additional insurance through EasyPost. Modernize your returns process with USPS and EasyPost.
