Online Postage

a picture showing how online postage worksI've been using the Royal Mail online postage service for a little while, for my eBay and Amazon packages. It's a great service; you type in the weight and size of the parcel and it offers you the full range of Royal Mail services. You then type in the address, and pay, and it prints you a postage label. Not to be confused with the SmartStamp service, which costs money over and above the postage.

What would really make it better, I mused, would be to link it to the Paypal payment details. That would remove the requirement to retype the address and save several clicks. I may have even mused on the feedback form.

Anyway, I went into my Paypal account today, and there it is. "Print postage label" -- links directly through to the RM service. This is going to save me a significant amount of time and trouble.
