Currently only POST and SPEED POST are supported. And will add delivery in other categories as we sign-up with partners accordingly.

However, if there is no delivery partner serving to the receiver's address under the chosen dispatch method, then Virphy will automatically choose a method cheaper than that for the purpose of dispatching that package.
