Pay for parcels with BLIK!
GLS Poland has started a cooperation with BLIK. Thanks to this, the recipients of parcels delivered by GLS can pay for shipments cashless and contactless.
BLIK payments can be used by people receiving COD parcels. This option allows them to make payments and collect a package in a completely non-contact way, maintaining an appropriate social distance. They do not need to approach the delivery driver with a credit card – all they have to do is give him the BLIK code. If necessary, even through closed doors. The procedure itself is very simple: after providing the code to the delivery driver, they confirm the transaction (like any other BLIK) in the mobile application of their bank.
BLIK currently allows a "contactless" payment of up to PLN 50,000. Thanks to this, it is more secure than card transactions that require a "touch" PIN entry of over PLN 100.
Introducing this functionality to the CashService (more information here )is another possibility of secure delivery of parcels by GLS Poland. For prepaid shipments, recipients can also use the InfoCourierService, where they will receive an SMS with a pickup code. All they have to do is give it to the delivery driver and a signature confirming that a receipt of the package will not be necessary. In addition, they can agree to leave the shipment without a signature in a secure place they have designated as part of the FlexDeliveryService. All actions are taken to increase the safety of customers, recipients and delivery drivers.
