Delivery confirmation is verification from the partner carrier that your shipment has been delivered to its destination. Whether or not your shipment will have delivery confirmation depends on the carrier who handles the final mile delivery to your customer.
Chit Chats partners with national carriers that will handle the delivery to your customers. For international shipments this means the final mile delivery is dependent upon the country you are shipping to. For example, Royal Mail handles the final mile delivery when shipping to the U.K. In Canada, Canada Post handles the final delivery for all Canadian shipments sent with us.
Delivery confirmation is not the same as signature confirmation which is only available for select postage types on our platform. Delivery confirmation is a tracking update that confirms the shipment has reached its final destination (your customer).
Will my shipment have delivery confirmation?
