Save time & money by shipping with e-parcels
Packing and posting is one of those jobs that every online retailer has to take care of and while we can’t help you with the actual packaging, one company has come up with some cost and time savings for the postage part of the process.
e-parcels.com aim to reduce the level of work for you to process you postage so that you can minimise the time you spend on the daily task of picking and packing. They can help you with UK Untracked Postage, International Untracked Postage as well as for your Trackable & Registered UK & International Services.
The basic premise of their service is to enable you to simply address your parcels and leave e-parcels.com to worry about postage and dispatch. They will undertake all of the weighing, printing of postage labels and attaching tracking numbers – the only work you have to do is separate your parcels into tracked or untracked batches and you’ll save money at the same time.
e-parcels.com specialise in delivering a service which balances price with speed to ensure value for money which does not compromise the delivery expectations of the end customer.
e-parcels.com UK Untracked Postage Service
e-parcels.com have reduced the level of work you need to do to process your untracked UK postage. UK items are supplied to e-parcels.com, sorted by Large Letters and Packets, in sacks with an address label – they do not require a manifest for these items.
If you wish to have a daily confirmation of your UK parcels processed by destination postcode (referenced against your order number) then e-parcels.com’s systems have the ability to do this if you add your own barcode on parcels (suggestion… use the eBay or Amazon order number).
There’s no need to pre-weigh, this is a real time saver. e-parcels.com tariffs range from per item billing to an automatically calculated daily average weight by format. All you need do is to apply an address label to your UK items and e-parcels take care of everything else including applying the postage indicia (“stamp”) and they also include your Return Address in the indicia.
The benefit of this services is that you simply address all your parcels and drop them unweighed and unstamped into the mail sack and e-parcels take care of everything else for you. 95% of items are delivered three working days after collection making it an ideal option for those using 2nd class packet post.

They don’t ask for any International sortation, although customers may choose to sort by Flats and Packets should they wish. There’s no requirement to sort by country, to weigh or to apply postage.
The e-parcels.com Priority Airmail service includes applying the indicia on your behalf as well as standardised CN22 labels for CDs, Books, Vinyl and Household Items should you wish.
