About delivery options for Australia Post

Australia Post has three delivery options:

  • Authority to Leave (Safe Drop): A signature and name will still be captured when your customer is at home. If they are not at home, the parcel will be left in a safe place if one is available, or a notification card left and the parcel taken to a nearby Post Office if no safe place is available
  • Authority to Leave (Safe Drop) can be requested by receiver: A signature and name will be captured when your customer is at home. If they are not at home, the parcel will only be left in a safe place if your customer has requested this during the delivery process (through MyPost or through an invitation if they receive email tracking notifications). In all other cases, a notification card will be left and the parcel taken to a nearby Post Office.
  • Signature Required (card if not home): A signature and name will always be captured and the parcel will be taken to a nearby Post Office if your customer is not at home to sign for the parcel.

For more information, read Australia Post's delivery fact sheet.
