Explanation of service charges

Membership fee: recurring fees for our premium level Package & Mail or Nu Skin/Distributor 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: an optional service wherein we perform a detailed review of all goods before shipping. This also can include certain specific tasks that fall outside of our normal preparations for a shipment, such as removing tags.

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.
