Post Office Online Shop Delivery Fee

Ask a Question

I needed stamps and as I'm staying at home I looked at the post office website to get some. £2.99 delivery fee for a book of stamps! Isn't that crazy? ( or £3.98 for fast delivery!) Why can't they stick it in a cheap envelope on 2nd class postage instead? I didn't buy any lol.

Anyone knows where to get stamps online without ridiculous fees?

As I started your comment I immediately thought the same as you, why can't they post them. I then thought it is a letter which would take time to address and deliver so a good idea would be to use one of your stamps to send to you. Win win. Cheaper for you but they are getting a payment of a kind.

I always order my stamps with my online shopping, can you do that?

TheChimp I often see those symbols on your posts lol, are they censored words or some special meaning I know nothing about?!

Yes, I get mine with my Sainsbury's shop.

TheChimp oh I see, that's a pretty good idea as long as someone doesn't post seconds before you lol.

Why not use Parcel2go instead? Royal Mail is always increasing their prices.

PhilipMarc Royal Mail is still cheapest up to a certain size and obviously for normal mail and letterbox sized parcels.

G0501501 yes the £2.99 for delivery of staps by post is in my opinion a rip off. Couldn't they just put them in a envelope with your address and your Postman would deliver??? or maybe the Postman has stamps and you can by directly from him?

If you've got a printer you can print your own label and pay the postage cost (from 65p) by card or PayPal - no sign-up is required.https://send.royalmail.com/

G0501 I suppose you could print "the label" on an A4 sheet then fold it in such a way that it could, with a bit of glue or sellotape, become an envelope, probably easier than printing small labels - and an A4 sheet of paper is cheaper than an envelope.😀

Yes, I added them onto my last Tesco order, very successfully - they were in an envelope attached to the paper bill. 🐞
