Shipping Services Now On Sale

Shipping services on sale

Through the 27th of this month, the United Kingdom’s Post Office is offering a summer sale incentive to customers using its Drop & Go service.

Customers can receive a discount of up to 50 percent when they choose to ship Medium Parcels via the Drop & Go service. The Small Parcel-equivalent pricing gives those wishing to try out the service the opportunity to do so with a healthy financial incentive.

Drop & Go is a service that allows higher volume customers to quickly drop off their mailing at the Post Office without waiting in line. To use the service, a customer signs up at a local office and pre-pays the new Drop & Go account. When the customer has a mailing to send, he or she heads to the fast track counter where the clerk performs a quick check of the item and ensures the customer’s account has enough funds to pay for it. After a few moments, the customer departs the office and the item is on its way.

Two forms of ID are required to sign up for the service and the application must be submitted in person.

Do you think USPS should offer a 50 percent off sale for its Priority Mail Medium Flat Rate shipping service to attract new business?

    I do not think USPS should offer a 50% discount on Priority Mail. It is already very reasonably priced, and such a deep discount would create a loss that I do not believe is even — legally — allowed. However, people do enjoy some discounts on the already-low Priority rates by printing their own shipping labels, on eBay transactions, through negotiated service agreements, etc. And the free boxes, labels and tape are also a significant incentive for mailers.

    The discount should be more and they need to charge for the boxes like they do the tape in my office…
