Ability to create prepaid labels via Click and Drop personal API
Currently, to create labels via a Royal Mail API requires an OBA, manifest creation and the shipments to be collected or dropped off at a sorting centre.
The personal Click & Drop API similarly allows the creation of orders, but not labels (without the above process). These orders then have to be manually clicked through the web interface to pay and print the shipping labels.
The idea is to bridge the gap in Royal Mail's APIs by extending the Click and Drop API to enable pre-paid labels to be created from personal Click and Collect API.
These labels would then not require an OBA, manifest creation, collection/drop off at a sorting centre allowing smaller businesses to programatically create labels for their mail.
Hello, thank you for your suggestion. This is not something we have plans to introduce.
