Can I give my return package to DHL?
Yes, it is possible to give your return directly to the postman if your package was delivered with DHL. Are you expecting a new or different delivery with DHL? Just give your return package to the mailman when he rings your door, instead of bringing it to a drop-off point or Packstation. DHL will accept your return, if you have your QR code ready to scan!

Can I combine multiple orders in one return package?
You can. You still have to create online for all orders the digital return label, but you just use only one of the labels for return. This is also possible in case of multiple returns from orders delivered with different carriers (DHL and Hermes). Register each return online and then follow the return instructions from one of the carriers (your choice) and bring the package to a drop-off point from the same carrier.
