Click and Drop Printer

Hi all,

Looking to speed up my eBay selling and avoid queue at local post office by using click and Drop, printing my own 1st class signed for and popping in postbox on way to work.

I can't seem to find where I can buy a zebra thermal printer from the post office anymore. Have they stopped selling? If so which printer is the current best buy so to speak?

Thanks

    I’m using a Zebra printer and got mine via a discounted rate from an introduction from Royal Mail. It was near impossible to find the link to order it but someone on here sent me details . Unfortunately I don’t have the link anymore.

    i would give you the usual caution though about dropping expensive things straight into the box. I assume if you are using signed for then these items are valuable so why risk not having any way of making a claim for loss or damage , or even more importantly defending against a claim of fraudulent use of a card? lose that latter claim and PayPal charge you an additional £14 for them having to sort it out .

    Zebra.  No ongoing costs as it is thermal and RM provide the labels FOC.  If you ever use the QR code and go to RM to get your label printed, it is a Zebra that they use.

    I'm surprised how much saving there is using a Zebra printer, with ink and paper savings I probably paid for mine within a year. I order my labels in batches of 4 or 5 rolls and have no difficulty with getting them delivered. My RM OBA account also gives me delivery conformation on large letters (at a slight extra cost) and the whole setup has made a considerable difference to my costs and time spent.
