How do I get a Royal Mail discount?

    Hi All,

    Still new to this, but looking to see if I can reduce my postage costs with Royal Mail.

    We are currently averaging 4 large letters per day (7 days per week). I expect this to increase as we expand.

    I called Royal mail and the phone operator said I need to call them once I have posted 1000 parcels within the last 12 months and only then will they get one of their sales team to call me. This is a little frustrating as our run-rate will see us at 2133 in 12 months.

    Can anyone suggest some advice please?

    Thanks

    Ayrton.

    Hi Ayrton,

    We have Royal Mail Business Account, we tried ask for extra discount, but my account manager told me that they can not offer extra discount :(

    There is extra discoun in OBA only if we ship from 250 Large Letter a day (so never!!), or from 20 Parcels.

    Thanks for the info Sam, 250 per day????? That's insane. Well at least I know not to bark up that tree yet. Thanks for replying and I hope your business is going well. If I make any progress I will be sure to message you.
