Explanation of service charges

Membership fee: recurring fees for our PREMIUM (Package & Mail) or DISTRIBUTOR (Package & Mail) accounts, charged monthly or annually.

Shared Member fees: the membership fees added to your account to allow you to receive packages addressed to a name other than the account holder’s name. This service is mostly used when members want to allow friends and family to use their OPAS account.

*For Distributor membership, $5/shared member fee is applied if OPAS adds shared members on the customer’s behalf.

InspectionWe check all incoming packages to make sure if the item has damage and piece count matches the declaration. If you need to have items checked closely to make sure if they match the declaration exactly, please request inspection. Inspection may include color/size/product number matching, price tag removal, content split between packages or other special requests. Please include special instructions when sending, or contact us with any questions about inspection services we provide. Inspection fee may increase depending on the tasks you request us to perform.

Discard/Shred: allow disposal of unwanted packages or mail. For letters with sensitive information, we recommend selecting shred to ensure complete destruction of all details.

Alternate Address fee: if you use OPAS’ Alternate Address service (details available inside your account) there will be an added $15.00 per package charge applied.

Pick-up Handling fee: this charge is applied if you make contact with OPAS to collect your packages from our U.S. facility directly.  Account holder is the only person who can pick up the packages. Government issued ID is required.

Return Handling fee: if the merchant provides prepaid postage or shipping labels, we charge a $10.00 handling fee. If the merchant doesn’t provide prepaid postage or shipping labels, we charge our base domestic rates for return, but no added service fee.
