    With how many times they launch a TLP, I really do not understand why they have not added a COD to the parcel system. Some people are MILES away from any bank or parcel NPC and want you to just send them stuff and hope you'll not get ripped off and paid later ? It's such a simple addition to a system that is HEAVILY USED.

    I would assume its not a "simple addition" due to how the parcel system works. Its been requested before(just about every time a tlp opens) so I have to assume its a technical / time limitation.

    I've CoDd hundreds of players over the course of multiple TLPs. And never once been ripped off. If you're trading HIGH value items work out a way to take in person. Anything under multiple krono. Stop doubting the community.

    As the poster above mentioned. I too have "CoD'd" a ton of items over the course of the life of every TLP. The QoL feature it would add would be fine, however not necessary. Trust your community a bit more.

    If you're trading anything of a Krono or more in value you should simply make a meet up point. Make lvl 1 alts and trade

    this is a social game, if someone scams you just make a monk and have fun

    part of the convenience of parcels sales comes with inherent risk of being ripped off. Has it happened? Sure, but it's ultra rare and 99% of parcel says go appropriately.

    To reiterate what previous posters have said, I’ve used the parcel system for thousands and thousands of trades over the years, most I’ve ever been scammed for was about 100p. It’s kind of impressive, for all the shenanigans that go on in EQ, trade scams are INCREDIBLY rare. I’ll blindly parcel anything up to 1-2kr in value and have relative certainty it will be paid for. Kudos to the community for getting us to this point.

    I am sure it's a time vs reward situation. Do you want to invest the time to add something like this when it is totally obsolete as soon as Luclin opens up?

    Considering how infrequently there are problems, as noted by several people above and the fact that you can create a level 1 alt to sit in the Commonlands, where most people set up to trade and there is a parcel vendor to send stuff to yourself, you can easily mitigate any risk, making the need for this even less.

    I use it religiously, but I won't risk large sums.

    The only real reason I could see for them to invest the time on it is if they feel like it's helpful to pull micro amounts of coin out of the economy as a C.O.D. fee.

    I have. Usually for less than 100pp. "Oh, can you parcel that to me? I'm at Hamlord and I can't leave right now. I'll send the money as soon as I'm done here." Uh huh.

    The easy solution is to only send parcels to people you have interacted with before and can trust to send payment after they get the item.
