    Royal Mail Online Postage Closing Down on 23 March 2018

    We are closing down our Online Postage application on 23 March 2018.
    After 10 years we’re replacing our platform with a new and improved service Click & Drop: our one-stop postage and labels solution ideal for consumers and small businesses:
    Quickly print one-off parcel postage without the need to register
    Pay easily using PayPal or credit/debit card
    Save all of your addresses in the online address book
    Connect your eBay, Amazon, Magento, Big Commerce and Shopify stores and fulfil all your orders
    Build up a product catalogue to remember dimensions for regular orders
    Automatically set up shipping rules for quick postage selection

    Visit Click & Drop to begin buying your postage straight away and to find out more.
    You can still use the old Online Postage application for a short while by clicking here.
    We’ll keep all existing customers updated as the deadline approaches but would recommend you move across to Click & Drop as soon as possible to ease the transition.
    Please note that Click & Drop uses a pay-as-you-go model, pre-pay account functionality isn’t supported, so any outstanding balances in your Online Postage pre-pay account will have to be used before the deadline date.

    not a scam
    Everything about this email told me it was a scam -
    Dear Customer instead of my name
    all the links were to the same address
    I didn't remember having an account(!)

    So, I logged on without using the links in the email and found that I was indeed owed some money. I only entered my bank account details and address. No passwords, no DOB or other personal details. Hopefully I'll get some money back.

    I had to do a manual withdrawal as the card on file had long expired and it was (or seemed to be) the easiest option. I made the withdrawal request on 4th January. Still nothing in the account, they tell me it could be 6-8 working weeks!

    Ok made the change from Online Postage to Click & Collect. I can get over the 30p still in account that I need to reclaim by post (no I am not bothering) but...

    NO ADDRESS BOOK ON CLICK AND COLLECT!!!

    Conclusion

    Pile of Crap.

    HOW IS THIS AN IMPROVEMENT?
