    I would imagine hes getting a commission for introducing us to the new provider.

    To the point above, that sounds like a good idea.

    Good point regarding trust between members.

    We charge the mail providers a flat admin fee for setting up the contract between you and them. We don't receive any ongoing commissions so all of the savings are passed directly to you. We also have an Account Manager appointed by the provider to look after you and take care of implementation.

    Some companies have tried to get a better deal by going direct but so far we've not been beaten. I negotiated a really good tariff for 'low volume' customers who typically would be paying full tariff if they applied direct to the mail providers. We also speed up the process (possible to get contracts signed same day in some cases).

    I'm not trading yet but hope to soon, if I could post 50 a day I would be very happy.

    Two questions..

    What would happen if you agree to 50 parcels a day but one day you can only post 49? Technically it is under 50, so would it be ok or breach the contract?

    And two, sales can be sporadic, one day you may post 70, then the next maybe 40. What would happen here, if the contract says 50 a day?

    Royal Mail is rigid when it comes to volumes and their terms and conditions but the other providers are more flexible and have a more customer-centric approach to how they apply agreements. You'll not be penalized for the odd day where you don't reach 50. Account Managers would tend to review their customer's volumes on a monthly basis and assuming you average more than 50/day you should be fine. If you were regularly below 50/day then the provider could come back to you and terminate services if it was not commercially viable for them. Typically, there would be a notice period so you could manage a move back to Royal Mail safely and maintain service to your customers.
