Royal Mail has announced new features in it’s Click & Drop product.
Click & Drop is the service provided to businesses and private senders that enables them to buy and print barcoded postage labels online without the need to manually input the address of each individual buyer
The new features mean that senders using the service will now have the ability to download orders from multiple marketplaces or their website to Click & Drop. Marketplace sellers can automatically upload shipping details including tracking numbers to the marketplace, which can help inform buyers their items have been dispatched. Senders will also be able to access Royal Mail’s address look-up service to improve address accuracy and first time delivery success.
Other developments to Click & Drop include new warehouse management capability enabling sender to build a product catalogue, the ability to create shipping rules which will automatically assign a shipping service to the weight or value of an order.
Royal Mail has also developed a new warehouse management capability within its Click & Drop solution to help customers manage their stock more effectively. This will enable sellers to build a product catalogue, store product details, warehouse location numbers and parcel dimensions to speed up order processing.
Nick Landon, Managing Director of Royal Mail Parcels, said: “The enhancements to our online postage solution Click & Drop are yet another step Royal Mail is taking to improve convenience for our customers. This is also part of Royal Mail’s strategy of investment in IT, to support its on-going transformation and make it easier for customers to access our services.”
