Uber has introduced a new feature that will allow consumers to return packages to a local post office, UPS or FedEx location for just $5 — or only $3 for Uber One members — just in time for the holiday shopping season.

The ridehailing giant launched Uber Connect in 2020 to simplify the way consumers can send items to friends, family or colleagues across town, and the new “Return a Package” feature will allow consumers to simply tap a button to return a package.
