For safety and proper identification of each parcel, you will need to either print and attach to your package an individual invoice with a QR code or write down the order number and unique passcode (first 4 numerical digits of your order number) on your package. Our delivery agents are then required to either scan a QR code on the parcel or enter the unique order passcode upon arrival at pick-up point before they can begin the delivery process.
