FedEx Ground U.S. Collect On Delivery (C.O.D.)
FedEx Ground® C.O.D. allows the shipper to designate the amount of money that the FedEx Ground driver collects from the recipient when a package is delivered. If the FedEx Ground driver collects guaranteed funds, or a company and/or personal check, the payment is sent directly to the shipper via U.S. mail. If cash is collected, by the next business day, FedEx Ground issues a check to the shipper in the amount of the cash collected. The FedEx issued check is sent to the shipper using the U.S. Postal Service. The shipper must designate the type of payment to be collected by FedEx Ground. FedEx Ground C.O.D. is not available with the FedEx Home Delivery® service. Available options with FedEx Ground C.O.D.:
- Delivery Signature Services
- Hazardous Materials (FedEx Ground U.S.)
- Additional handling options
are available in
FedEx Ground U.S. Shipping.
Note: FedEx offers a FedEx Ground® Electronic C.O.D. (E.C.O.D.) option. When you contract to use this option, FedEx electronically deposits your C.O.D. payment into your bank account within 24 to 48 hours of collection. Because E.C.O.D. is a contract service, you must contact your FedEx account executive to register for this option. No additional entries are required to create an E.C.O.D. shipment in the Ship request.
