Can you mail a package to someone so that I don't pay to send it, and they pay for the postage when it is delivered to their house?

I have some of my friends stuff that she wants me to send back to her, and she said she will pay for the shipping. However I am not going to see her until next summer so I'm not sure when I would get my money back for paying to deliver the stuff to her.

So I was wondering if there is a way that I could like send the box of her stuff, and I wouldn't have to pay, but she would pay for the shipping when it arrived at her house? Is that a thing that you can do?

Thanks for any help!

    The United States Postal Service (USPS) has an option which allows a sender to mail a package from one United States location to another using collect on delivery or cash on delivery (COD). The package would not be released to the recipient until the total amount due (cost of the postage) had been collected from the addressee. USPS will accept payment from the recipient as cash or a personal check or money order made payable to the sender (you). USPS will forward to the sender the recipient's check or money order. The received cash will be converted to a Postal Money Order and mailed to the sender, with the cost of the Postal Money Order added to the COD amount paid by the recipient.

    USPS will hold a COD mail piece for only ten days before they parcel will be returned to the sender.

    Take it to the post office or ups and send it COD "collect on delivery"

    if I recall you have to pay the shipping and fee then you are reimbursed minus the fee when they collect from the recipient.
