The use of a Czech or other foreign account for cash on delivery transfers selected in export destinations is not excluded either. However, it is necessary to keep in mind the current bank fees associated with the transfer, as well as exchange rate differences that may lead to a change in the original value of cash on delivery. GLS has no influence on and is not responsible for the origin and amount of fees.
Cash on delivery amounts transfer
GLS strictly separates collected payments from other finances, and manages it at a separate bank account, and keeps accounts on every parcel number. Transfer of collected payments at the sender's bank account is made in the Czech Republic automatically as soon as possible after the parcel delivery to the recipient.
Senders without a Czech account number
If the sender does not have a bank account in the Czech Republic, cash on delivery can be transferred to his account once a week, once every two weeks or once a month, depending on the client's choice.
The condition is that the sender's account accepts the Czech currency, because cash on delivery at GLS CZ is paid exclusively in crowns. The transfer to a foreign account number is related to bank fees, which are invoiced directly to the sender outside the influence of GLS CZ.
The CashService surcharge includes the cost of the entire process and is charged even if the parcel is not handed over to the recipient for a reason not caused by GLS. In the case of cash-on-delivery shipments abroad, it is recommended that the sender have a current account in the domestic currency of the destination country.
