How best to buy return postage?
It is recommended to use some kind of tracked or signed-for service to return items back to us, as this allows you some level of protection if the parcel gets lost or damaged in transit.
Small, low-value, lightweight items can be returned with Royal Mail, you can post returns at a local Post Office, or you can buy postage labels online using Royal Mail’s Click And Drop service, and in many areas of the UK they will even collect from you for a small fee, if you are unable to drop off at a Post Office or Customer Service Point at a local delivery office. There’s also no need to pay extra for Special Delivery or 1st Class services, Tracked 48 or 48 Signed For will suffice.
When it comes to larger items over 2kg in weight, you will get stung by Royal Mail and the Post Office, as they will only offer Parcelforce services, which will be considerably more expensive.
These will offer you a fully tracked service, and in some cases are considerably cheaper than Royal Mail. The likes of ParcelHero and Parcel2Go also give consumers access to premium courier services at discounted rates, and parcels and packages can either be dropped off at a pickup point, or collected from your own address.
Remember, it is the buyer’s responsibility to ensure that any unwanted items are returned in good condition and fit for resale, so please do ensure that any item being returned for refund is packed well to avoid any damage!
For buyers struggling to return large or bulky items back to us, please get in touch, as we may be able to arrange collection from yourself, though a minimum charge of £12 will apply.
