  1. Self serve machines should be able to process proof of postage for click & drop

    It is ridiculous that, when using Click & Drop services, you still have to queue in the post office for a proof of purchase. If I'm having to queue anyway, I may as well just use the counter services in the first place. It would save a lot of time and resources if the self serve machines in the Post Offices could scan the QR code printed on the postage label and print a proof of purchase. Please forward this suggestion to the relevant department (if this isn't it) as a lot of suggestions on here seem to be closed…

    Hi and thanks for your suggestion, unfortunately, the Post Office is a separate company, so we would urge you to contact them, or to put your complaint to Royal Mail customer services, as they will be the right people to help you. This UserVoice page is only for the Click & Drop website itself.

  2. WH SMITHS + CLICK & DROP = NIGHTMARE!!

    WH Smith and click and drop in Sutton, Wallington system doesn't work! Shutting down post offices and giving it to WH Smith is a big mistake!!!

    1.The the click and drop machines are always broken, they have 2 members of staff on the desk, 1 staff member at the desk has to often leave the desk to regularly to help at the on click and drop machines, because they have no support. People just dump scanned items over the counter. It's a mess!!!
    2.The ques are average 10min's or more because they only have 2 staff
    3.Most people leave rather…

  3. Despatch/Pick list not printing

    Over the past week or so, we no longer get the despatch note label printing out along with the postage label.
    Using a Zebra GK420D with auo print, it used to just churn out both labels per order, now even if I go to regenerate labels, only the postage one comes out.
    I have checked settings, and all appears to be set for 6x4 labels for everything.
    Anything I may have missed or is this broken for others too?
    I have tried signing out and back in, turning off auto-print, our of ideas.

  4. Improve Refund System

    Money taken within seconds, refund requested, it's now the second day after the expiry of the label and still no refund. Am I impressed?

    Automatic refunds are processed after 5 days. This is an anti-fraud mechanism to allow our systems to detect unpaid parcels within our network. If after the 5 days the label has not been scanned, your money will be refunded.

  5. Click and drop website

    The website has just caused me a lot of pain as it is not very clear where I could drop off a parcel. It asked for my postcode and then suggested I could drop off at my local post office. This turned out to be incorrect and I had to travel a considerable distance to a service centre. Had I known this, I would not have used Click and Drop. Here’s a suggestion - improve customer experience by indicating the nearest drop off point BEFORE actually asking for payment, giving the customer a choice.

    Hi and thanks for your suggestion. We are very sorry for the inconvenience caused.
    Our website does state at the top of the payment page which services can be taken to a Post Office and which can be taken to a Customer Service Point. This information is visible before you are asked to pay for any postage.
    If you have a difficulty with an individual Post Office branch, we would recommend contacting Royal Mail customer services who will be able to resolve this for you.

  6. CSV Import only uploads the first row

    When importing orders from a 3rd party csv, the import stopped working. The import page shows the correct amount of rows after selecting the CSV, but once you click import, it only uploads the first row (ignoring the headers ofcourse).

  7. go back to the printing system where you could print the proper size for a quarter page label.

    The system for buying is easier, but what a shambles the printing out of labels has become. It is so old-fashioned and wasteful to cut out a ridiculously-sized label from an A4 sheet and stick it on. I used to be able to print out landscape onto a quarter page label to fit a standard envelope, but I have had to waste a half-page label to print a size that is neither here nor there, then cut it down to fit, a really disgusting retrograde step. If I could have turned it sideways on I could have fitted it onto…

  8. ...fix import settings to not update product data when option is unticked

    It looks like the products catalog is being added to every time a CSV import is used, even though the selection box to "Update product data" is unticked. We don't use the built in product management as they're defined per order import. There must be an unnecessary overhead of processing and storing this data. With the need to provide electronic customs data from Jan '19, the extra product info that is inevitably going to be imported is just going to compound this issue. Please fix the tick box operation.

    Hi and thank you for your suggestion.
    The update functionality you have described is only used to update existing products if the SKU imported matches an existing product within Click & Drop.
    When you add a new SKU that does not match an existing product, a new product is created automatically.
    if you wish for your existing products to be overwritten by any changes in the data you import – please leave the “Update product data” option checked.

  9. Extend valid period of label

    Why, oh why, is the period for which the label is valid so short? I no longer use these in case I can't get down to the postbox/office in the next 24 hours, or if the person entrusted with it cannot, in which case I have wasted my money. Additionally if it still gets posted it causes great inconvenience and expense to the recipient. This doesn't happen with stamps, why should it with the label???

    Hi and thanks for your suggestion. Unfortunately a label is not the same as a stamp, and we would urge you not to generate the label unless you know you will be able to post if in time.
    If you have been unable to post your items in time, please contact our support team who will be able to issue you a refund.

  10. Automatically reprint label after changing address

    When I edit an address, why do I then have to select it and click on "Re-generate labels" at the bottom of the screen to get it to print out?

    Surely the whole reason for editing an address is to generate a new label, otherwise why would it need editing?

    Hi and thank you for your suggestion. Unfortunately, forcing the system to reprint the label may cause other customers to use paper and ink unnecessarily, and this is the reason why offer the ‘re-generate label’ function, so you can control when your own labels are produced.

  11. oba down

    For the last week, every time we have gone on to OBA around 1.30pm to 2.30pm, when we need to print our invoice, OBA has been down.

    Today we wanted to go on OBA to check a price before we completed our Click and Drop orders, but we couldn’t because it was down.

    We process the order via C+D, manifested and got the final price. That price was a LOT higher than we had expected. Had we been able to check OBA and got the correct price, or if C+D gave us a price BEFORE manifesting, we would not have…

    Hi and thank you for your feedback. We were not aware of OBA systems being down during those times. We would strongly urge you to contact our support team who will be able to identify any specific issues with your account, and provide a resolution.
    We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.

  12. Stop messing about with Royal Mail On-line services!

    Has no-one at Royal Mail ever heard the expression "if it ain't broke don't fix it". I've just been forced to use Click & Drop after years of using other means of on-line payment & label printing. I found the whole experience as user-friendly as a cornered rat. To add insult to injury I found (after paying) that I couldn't take my Parcel to a Post Office. Please consider me no-longer a supporter of Royal Mail.

  14. Click & Drop Desktop

    New Click & Drop Desktop....

    "In order to use Click & Drop Desktop, you must use a computer or device running Microsoft Windows 7 or above"

    You couldn't make it up. Please stop trying to dictate to your customers what technology they should use!

  15. New update (end Oct) enabled logo to be added to shipping label

    Has anyone else found that logo is only adds to Amazon orders. We found that orders generated via Ebay are not adding logo to shipping label.

  16. Not all Amazon orders are appearing in C & D,

    We use Amazon and Ebay and while ebay orders always apear in C&D for us to process we have seen that many Amazon orders are not being transfered across and so we are having to input them manuely and run the risk of missing an order.

  17. Return address on labels wrong font problem

    For the last week or so (possibly since the last release of CnD OBA on the 23rd), we are having issues with Click&Drop Shipping labels via dropbox having the wrong (or a substitute) font on the return address.
    The font is correct when we regenerate the label in CnD (which goes
    direct to the printer using print assist)

    The font is too big - as big as the delivery address, so could get
    confused. We have checked this on multiple
    computers, & the error is consistent. The incorrect font also shows as
    incorrect on screen - Is one of the…

  18. Fix Incomplete Magento 2 Integration

    The Magento 2 Integration does not populate the carrierCode attribute when connecting to Magento 2, so it is not possible to correctly identify which tracking numbers are from Royal Mail.

    Please set the carrierCode attribute to something unique such as "royalmail" or "rm".

    Without it customers are unable to track their package and tracking numbers are not recognised by Amazon when Magento 2 synchronises with Amazon.

    Now if there was an API that we could access this would not be an issue, but as Royal Mail have chosen to make their own 'integrations' with multiple platforms, we are now forced…

    I've wasted hours trying to log on to this click and drop thing. Old password not accepted and neither is trying to create a new account. Completely ridiculous. Hermes it is then

  20. Scan the parcel for 'Click and Drop Tracked Parcels' when the customer presents the parcel.

    When I drop off a tracked parcel. It would be good if the parcel could be acknowledged on the system in real-time. It is a tracked service and that should start immediately. I obtained a certificate of posting at 9.20 and it was still not acknowledged on the system at 9.55. It was at the Taunton sorting Office ref: TN045009937GB
