That`s not Royal Mail 24/48 is it ? The latter is significantly cheaper that RM parcels.
Dunno...like I say, I find all Royal Mail product offerings baffling - from what I can gather "Click & Drop" is just a GUI/Interface that's used to produce the label, then once done, you upload everything to your OBA account? (might be wrong)
Its linked to OBA account, I can log in to OBA to pay invoices, check spending etc. And see invoices before I get the postal copy.
I`ve been trying for ages to find out this info from the RM, various sources, none of them can help me other than to direct me to the price calculator, which is ridiculous. Nobody is going to fart about using a price calculator every time they want to know how much the carriage will cost. Now, if they can give prices (for RM24/48) for parcels (an objective size measurement) up to 2Kg without one having to manually check it in the price calculator, there is no reason why one should have to do that for stuff over 2Kg, EXCEPT, politically. What I mean by that is I suspect RM don`t quote for parcels over 2Kg, i.e. they don`t want to advertised the fact they take them, because that may be considered stepping into Parcelforce territory, their sister company. That is the only explanation which makes sense.
Thus what we`ll have to do is mess about researching every weight using the price calculator (if I can understand how to use it ! ) then manually writing out footnotes to all our RM24/48 price lists !
It very much depends on the dimensions of your package, where you wish to send it and the class of service you wish to use. You will find lots of information including pricing here: https://www.royalmail.com/personal/sending-parcels
It`s all exactly the same as for the prices I`ve already been quoted for RM24/48, except it`d be over 2Kg !
I have tried using the price calculator on the RM OBA page, as instructed by the RM, amd using CRL as the service description (= RM24/48), but it`s bringing up stupid prices, 3Kg would be £8.04 incl VAT, 4 Kg £9.56 !
I thought hold on these are too expensive, let`s try 2Kg, and sure enough it brought up £4.98, which is far more than the £3.59 on our price list !
