Explanation of service charges
Membership fee: recurring fees for our PREMIUM (Package & Mail) or PREMIUM PLUS (Distributors) 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.
Inspection (Basic): We perform our Basic Inspection for all incoming packages. They are checked for damage and to make sure the item count matches the declaration.
Inspection (Business Class): Items are checked closely to make sure they match the declaration exactly. Business Class Inspection may include color/size/product number matching, price tag removal, content split between packages and other special requests. Please include special instructions when sending, or contact us with any questions about inspection services we provide.
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 order charge applied. Note that this is per order, not per package in the order.
Pick-up Handling fee: this charge is applied if you make contact with OPAS to collect your packages from our U.S. facility directly, or by an appointed agent.
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.
