The company utilizes a unique technology known as EPOS (electronic signature) to facilitate the collection and delivery of parcels. EPOS is a procedure applied to collect payments from the recipient by means of bank transfers or credit card payments. Once an application is processed, the payment will be debited from the account of the courier operator and the receiver’s billing will appear on the billing statement of courier services. This payment system is more efficient than manual book-keeping as the client’s billing amount does not change during the billing cycle. EPOS is applicable to normal operations only.
