Royal Mail enhance Click & Drop service for eBay sellers

Some of you may already print your postage online and pay by PayPal. The service has been enhanced and rebranded as Click & Drop.

Click & Drop allows eBay sellers to integrate their selling account with the Royal Mail system that allows easy purchase and printing of postage labels. Crucially, there is no need for manual inputting the address of each individual buyer. You can then drop your parcels at a Post Office or into a local post box.

Currently, Click & Drop is limited to Royal Mail’s domestic parcel services, 1st and 2nd Class, Special Delivery Guaranteed by 1pm, Signed For 1st and 2nd Class. Cleverly, the system will check the delivery postcode to reduce chance of a misdelivery. You can pay by PayPal or credit an debit cards. You can check out the service on the Royal Mail website here.

Nick Landon, Managing Director of Royal Mail Parcels, said: “Royal Mail is very pleased to introduce Click & Drop. This is part of Royal Mail’s programme of investment in IT to support customers and make it easier for them to do business with us.”

Future planned enhancements to the service include the launch of international tariffs and an integration with and Parcelforce Worldwide, both of which are expected later in the year. Royal Mail will also be connecting the new system with business accounts in due course too.

Has anyone had a chance to use the new system?
