    Hey everyone,

    I feel stupid asking this but how does it work with ups.

    Example: If I sell something, send it cod, and the buyer gives the driver a money order, how do I get the money and how fast? Does he make the money order out to me or the ups guy?

    Thanks, I hope this is the right section to post this.

    Josh

    Don't use UPS for COD. They can take up to a month to get your money to you. FedEx or USPS are better options.

    JoshS,
    I've been delivering CODs for the USPS for 13 years now. The customer can give me cash or a personal check. If they pay in cash we add on a small money order fee. Ask if you can specify CASH. 'Cause a personal check might have no funds to back it up.
    I don't know if a "cash only" option exists, I'm not at work right now so I can't ask anyone.
