If the outstanding is not cleared within 6 days, either your Shipmondo balance or your saved payment card will be charged.
In case the above is not possible, a payment reminder will be sent to you after another 10 days, and a reminder fee will be applied to the outstanding amount (see paragraph 9. Additional charges and fees).
In case of non-payment, your Shipmondo account will ultimately be closed and the case will be passed on to a debt collection service. You will be liable for all legal costs or fees charged as a result of debt collection.
6.2 Address information and shipping label
You are fully responsible for the address information on the shipping label and its placement on your shipment, so that it’s visible to the carrier and can be scanned and machine sorted in carrier’s sorting facilities.
Should errors in address information occur or if the physical shipping label turns out to be defective in any way, i.e. the address can’t be read or the barcode scanned, a manual handling fee will be applied according to carrier’s applicable rates.

Shipments purchased through Shipmondo's shipping agreements are valid for 7 days from the date of purchase, with the exception of the following shipping products:
- DAO365 ParcelShop and Home Delivery: Valid for 6 days

6.5 Price difference, fees, service charges etc.
If a shipment is created with too little postage, you’ll be charged for the price difference subsequently.
If handling of a shipment has resulted in any other fees or service charges, these will subsequently be charged to you as well. The above charges can take place up to 180 days from the dispatch date of the shipment.
6.6 Maximum size and packaging requirements
Each carrier has their own requirements for package dimensions and packaging. If these are not met, an additional charge will be issued according to carrier’s applicable rates.
Any additional charges are based on carrier's prices, unless otherwise stated.
Information on carrier requirements for package dimensions and requirements for packaging can be found here.
An overview containing prices for carriers' additional charges and extraordinary activities can be found here.
If a shipment is rejected by a carrier due to exceeding the maximum size, it will be returned to the sender, without refund of the costs incurred. In addition, you will be charged for return costs. The cost of return will be the same as the cost of the original shipment.
6.7 Business parcel to a non-business address
If a business parcel is sent to an address that is not a business address, depending on the carrier, you might be charged for the price difference between a business and a private delivery. Otherwise, your shipment might be delivered to a pick-up point and an extra service charge might be applied.
6.8 Return shipments
6.8.1 Non-delivery of domestic shipments
If a domestic shipment can’t be delivered to the recipient or is not picked up at a service point, the shipment will be returned to the sender.
You won’t be charged for return costs, with an exception of repeated returns from the same address / service point, in which case Shipmondo reserves the right to invoice you for the costs of these returns. The cost of return will be the same as the cost of the original shipment.
6.8.2 Non-delivery of international shipments
In case an international shipment can’t be delivered due to a non-existing or faulty receiver address / missing contact information, you will be contacted pr. e-mail.
If Shipmondo doesn’t receive a response within 48 hours, the shipment will be sent back at your expense (see paragraph 9. Additional charges and fees).

6.9 Brug af Shipmondo Returportal
As a Shipmondo user, you can create a ReturnPortal and make it available to your customers for purchase of return shipments. A requirement for using the ReturnPortal is that your return address is a business address, which will be validated through a VAT-validation. If this requirement is not met, Shipmondo reserves the right to close the ReturnPortal in question without any notice.
You will be charged for any difference that may occur between the actual price and the price your customer has paid for the return shipment.
6.10 Additional services
Shipmondo offers the possibility of adding/purchasing a number of additional services to your shipment. Conditions for these additional services can be found under every individual service.

6.12 Closing of account
In case you wish to close your Shipmondo account, contact Shipmondo’s Customer Service from the e-mail address your account is created with. Any outstanding balance will be paid back to you, after an administration fee for account statement and closing of account is applied (see paragraph 9. Additional charges and fees).
Shipmondo provides access to various carrier services. Shipmondo is not a carrier or a freight forwarder, as Shipmondo doesn’t handle shipments and transport physically. Upon booking of a shipment through Shipmondo, you accept both Shipmondo's and the terms of your chosen carrier. This includes but is not limited to: packaging requirements, dimension requirements, complaint procedures, fees, service charges and insurance claims for damaged or lost items etc.
In case of a lost or damaged shipment, it is the carrier who is liable for compensation and the individual carrier's complaint procedures and conditions apply. Any complaint or compensation request is therefore to be submitted to the carrier directly.
If the shipment for which a compensation request is created is purchased through Shipmondo ReturnPortal, it is the owner of the ReturnPortal that is eligible for compensation and not the end-customer.
In case of disagreement regarding a fee or service charge, the complaint must be submitted to Shipmondo no later than 30 days after the service has been delivered / invoiced. Shipmondo reserves the right to reject complaints older than 30 days.
