Royal Mail helps eBay users ship parcels more conveniently
Click & Drop is a new online postage and label solution to make it easier for eBay sellers to ship parcels using Royal Mail. The new solution allows eBay sellers to integrate their accounts, enabling them to easily buy and print postage labels at the click of a button, without the need for manually inputting the address of each individual buyer.
The online service will also automatically check the delivery postcode to limit the risk of a misdelivery.
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.”
Extended payment options
Royal Mail has also extended the payment options for those using the new solution. Customers now have the flexibility of paying using their PayPal account as well as debit or credit cards. By extending payment options, marketplace sellers have the option of covering the cost of their postage using the proceeds generated from their marketplace sales, if the same account is used.
Customers using the new online service will have access to Royal Mail’s domestic parcel services. They will also be able to offer customers a choice of delivery options including 1st and 2nd Class, Special Delivery Guaranteed by 1pm, Signed For 1st and 2nd Class.
Customers wishing to send items abroad or use Parcelforce Worldwide services will be able to do so later in the year as new capabilities are developed. eBay high volume sellers who have business accounts with Royal Mail will also be able to access their accounts online later in the year.
Users can continue to post their items in a postbox or drop off at one of 11,500 Post Office® branches nationwide, depending on the service selected.
