Here’s how it works
Packaging goods well
Use a suitable robust cardboard box or the original packaging for the return shipment.
If available, please enclose the retailer’s return form. Protect the contents for safe transport and seal them with adhesive tape.
Affix shipping label
Have you received a label from the online shop? Take the label or print it out.
Attach the label to the largest area of the parcel.
If you haven’t received a label, you can create one yourself.
Dropping off a parcel
Option 1: If you wish, we will collect the parcel from you using the “pick@home” service. This service is free of charge with a return label. Simply place an order for collection in the “My Swiss Post” customer portal, in the Post-App or directly online in participating online shops.
Option 2: If you do not wish to collect the item, use a posting option of your choice.
Do you have a return label?
Business reply item label: free return
Have you received a return label from the online shop with the note “GAS”? GAS stands for business reply label. Using this label, you can return the parcel to the retailer free of charge. GAS labels are available to be affixed or as a PDF document for printing out yourself.
“99.01” label: cheaper return shipment
Does the number under the label barcode start with “99.01”? You will pay CHF 1.50 less if you return the parcel to the online shop. Example: you only pay CHF 7.00 instead of CHF 8.50.
No label received?
How to return the parcel
Create label yourself
Have you not received a return label, and the online shop does not offer pick@home? If so, simply create a free label yourself and decide whether you want us to collect the parcel or would prefer to drop it off yourself. The “Domestic parcel labels” online service enables you to print the label and then stick it on your parcel. If you use the Post-App and the DigitalStamp service, you can decide whether you want to print the parcel label yourself or would prefer us to do it for you.
Collection with pick@home
Many online shops offer pick@home. You can order the service directly in the online shop. A mail carrier will collect your parcel.
