Royal Mail trialing lower price on 2nd class medium parcels

The cost of sending a second class medium parcel will be reduced from £13.75 to £6.29 for a three-month period starting 17th July, online only. The trial ends on 16 October.

In addition, the cost of sending second class Signed For, medium parcels will be £7.29, reduced from £14.75.

A spokesperson informed Post&Parcel today: “The trial is designed to test the popularity of this price point rather than being a trial of the online channel. We’re offering this trial price point online simply because it makes it easier for us to execute.”

The £6.29 price point would be broadly inline with some of the leading economy courier services, and it is significantly less than Royal Mail’s first class service.
