What is Pay per Order?

For each order to be delivered and considered completed you will need to share the Collection Code and Delivery Code with the courier when they collect the order and on delivery. These are unique 4 digit codes generated by the system for you to share at each stage of the delivery to track your delivery.
What is Hire by Hour?
Hire by Hour allows you to hire a courier for a specific pre-defined duration at the courier's private hire rate.

You will only be charged once you provide the courier the hire Shift Code to activate the session.
When am I charged for the Pay per Order service?
You are only ever charged after a courier has completed the delivery request through the WuHu Delivery Protocol. This requires you sharing the Delivery Code for that order with the courier.
