RM want to charge extra for London and rural mail

No primary category set

New Royal Mail proposals could see increased costs for business mail delivery within London and to rural areas. Higher wages and the congestion charge in the capital make deliveries more expensive, while the long distances between deliveries in rural areas increase costs. A RM spokesman said that they had also proposed cheaper business mail deliveries for high-population areas outside London, to enable them to “compete more effectively with our competition”: this is apparently not about increasing overall revenue.

It was emphasised that RM would continue to offer a “one-price-goes-anywhere” stamped service. The new proposals relate only to “some bulk mail from some companies”, and so should not apparently affect the majority of eBay sellers, at least initially. How long the one price goes anywhere stamp can survive remains to be seen.
