Downloading the DPD App
There are many benefits to signing up to the DPD app for all of your DPD deliveries, but most notably the ability to set and save your delivery preferences such as your nominated safe place and any special instructions so you do not have to pass this information every time you order. More information on this and where to download in the link below.
