Note on Prepaid / Own Shipping Label:
In case you use your own shipping label, ensure that you provide the AWB Number and Service provider’s details when you are prompted at the Shipping stage.
This is Compulsory to avoid delays.
If you have used your own label, we cannot take any responsibility of pick-up and delivery to you. The Shipping Service providers often do not acknowledge receipt of the envelopes. Nor will CKGS drop off your prepaid envelopes to your shipping service provider as you have not bought the shipping service from us.

NOTE:

  • FedEx Prepaid Envelopes sent by you are NOT accepted.
  • USPS Pre-paid labels have an expiry date and hence they are NOT accepted by CKGS.
  • For Prepaid envelopes, CKGS will not be responsible to contact you, and if you ignore this point for any delay occurring will be your liability.
