I used it for a while before I managed to get OBA. But TBH I still had to queue half the time as if they were busy I got told they couldn’t guarantee processing my parcels in time for last collection if I just left them!
Plus, always had to queue to top up the card and wait for previous day’s receipt to be handed over. Time saved just wasn’t worth it.
Filling out the stupid forms with so few lines took forever as well.
The saving for just 2 weeks will help some people, but I wonder how many will stick with it once the price goes back to normal.
Anyone with enough volume to make this system any help could most likely get OBA now.
I wonder who is actually funding this Royal Mail or PO? or is it a joint thing to try and claw back some business for POs?
