Allow account mail users to access Barcode Savings rates
On your website at royalmail.com/barcodesavings you advertise that those who post on account can save around 1p per item by printing a barcode on every label.
We already print the 2D barcode through Click and Drop so why do we not have access to these savings? Either allow us to add the barcode or give us the discount as we're using 2D barcodes.
these products aren’t currently available in Click & Drop but are under consideration for a release later this year. Until then these products can only be ordered direct in OBA,

Any update on this would be appreciated!

Today I received forwarded from my organization's mailings manager a Royal Mail email about the replacement of STL and BPL with UNA, UNB, UNG and UNH and also about 1D barcodes ("Barcode Savings").
During the present crisis our organization has been partially shut down and has not been using its Royal Mail account. For the first time I have been sending packages using Click and Drop. I've been doing this with my own personal non-account login on a Pay-as-You-Go, non-account basis, and get an all-in-one label with a 2D barcode and the address.
I believe we will be using Click and Drop on account in future and would like to continue printing the same kind of 4-to-a-sheet labels as I've been doing on a non-account basis. If I am using, say, UNH (replaces BPL 2nd Class) on Click and Drop, will it automatically generate both the 2D barcode and the "Barcode Savings" 1D barcode as part of the same label?
Can we can an update on this.
I receive a letter today stating that STL/BPL will be retired next month and to use the UNxx codes. There is no letter alternative in C&D!!!!
Are you going to add the new codes before then or do we just stop sending post?

As we now have to use click and drop for international customs shipments would like to use it for all our oba shipments including the savings on large letter ung code. Please can you make availability ung code thanks
Later this year - 2018 - it is now 2019 and still nothing !!!
Under Review!!! just like the claims? see that flying pig!!!!!
At 100 letters per day, that’s £1,000 per year!
It’s now 3p?
Is there any progress on this, you said it was for release later this year, the unavailability of the barcode savings is the only thing that is currently stopping my from using Click&Drop
we were on oba but never heard of this.
I have had emails and now even letters from you in the post for me to use barcode savings. But its not an option to me, rather than send us all a letter spend that money on making edits.
Totally agree with this - the UNG and UNH codes on OBA which currently provide 2p barcode savings and this should be "switched on" in C&G should be relatively straightforward, I would already be using C&G exclusively if it wasn't for this.
So in effect - we're being charged 2p an item for using Click and Drop vs just printing PPI impressions along with barcodes. Seems like the usual Royal Mail logic....

I keep getting mail telling me this has been added to my account but I can't use it. Fed up of being messed about. Let us access these services.
This would be especially useful considering there's now a 2p price difference on 2nd class letters which is a large quantity of what we send.
I've tried contacting your live chat support about this but they had less of a clue than I did on this matter...
