App to app sharing is a new option in the InPost Mobile app, which allows you to share full control of a shipment with another user of the app (with a different phone number), allowing them to perform any actions they could with their own shipment, such as remote locker opening, extending the parcel's storage time, paying for COD shipments, etc. App to app sharing is available for shipments with statuses that allow any such actions to be taken.
You can pair with as many people as you want.
Your friend will only see the shipments you share with them. Parcels do not share automatically after pairing. This means that after pairing the devices, you should find the shipment that you want to share and go through the app to app sharing process.
Because of shipment security concerns, it is not possible to share a shared shipment further.
Yes, you can remove a paired user and pair with them again later.
No, it is not possible to undo shipment sharing. Once a shipment is shared, it stays in the other user's app.
