The Royal Mail are visiting eBay Live! to discuss ways to improve printing of postage labels through eBay and PayPal. The United States Postal Service handle postal deliveries differently. Robert Kopczynski, the Senior Business Service Network Specialist who has been advising Royal Mail explained that all USPS delivery workers carry a hand held scanner which stores proof of deliveries until they return to the depot where they can be uploaded onto their tracking systems. He’d love to see Royal Mail implement the same to enable tracking and full PayPal Seller Protection in the UK.
The big improvement that Kopczynski demonstrated to Royal Mail was how USPS are intergrated into PayPal to enable bulk printing of postage to enable large sellers to process shipping efficiently. We should be seeing more developments and improvements in PayPal postage in the future. The one I’d really like to see is the ability to use your own Royal Mail and ParcelForce account information to enable easy printing of postage labels coupled with the discounts that come with having a Royal Mail and ParcelForce account
