Systems and methods for providing customer requested shipping levels-of-service changes directly via a shipping company and independent of the merchant that sold the goods are described. During an online shopping transaction, a customer purchases goods from a merchant via the merchant's website. After the purchase is complete, the customer can directly interact with the shipping company to change the level-of-service of the shipment. The customer may request that a higher or lower level-of-service be used in delivering the goods. In exchange, the shipping company will require payment from the customer or return payment back to the customer. The payment may be in the form of money or loyalty points with the shipping company.
