Has anyone else received an email from Royal Mail this morning regarding changes to terms and conditions ? It sounds like the end of PPI
Changes to items sent with unbarcoded labels
If you are affected by this change, you will have received our recent communication about us withdrawing all products that do not carry a 2D barcoded label, and the need to register for migration by 30 June 2021.
As a result, all customers using unbarcoded or 1D barcoded labels will need to begin migrating to, and to continue using, a solution that prints out 2D barcoded labels. 2D barcodes are data‑rich barcodes generated through shipping solutions, that enable Royal Mail to link an item to the posting customer’s account.
This change will impact the following services:
- Royal Mail 1st Class
- Royal Mail 2nd Class
- Royal Mail 24®
- Royal Mail 48®
- Royal Mail Special Delivery Guaranteed®by 9am or by 1pm
- Royal Mail Signed For®
We’ll be in touch to provide you with your exact migration date and to support you through this process. If you’re unable to migrate to any of the shipping solutions, please let us know, by visiting royalmail.com/barcodingfeedback.
For more information, please go to royalmail.com/termschanges.
Changes to Business Mail and Advertising Mail
Business Mail and Advertising Mail customers will no longer be able to process Royal Mail Signed For® services via their Online Business Account (OBA). Any items requiring Royal Mail Signed For® will need to be processed separately via a shipping solution platform, where Signed For labels can be printed and applied to existing mail pieces.
From 12 July 2021, those customers using Royal Mail Signed For® will be contacted directly to begin their migration and supported through this change.
