The delayed introduction of version 2 of Post and Go software has at last brought the Worldwide 40g Faststamp (current price £1.65).
The new value first appeared at London's Broadway SW1 branch on 13 October 2011.
At the same time changes to the Post and Go system also allows customers to post Recorded Signed For, Special Delivery, Airsure and International Signed For Royal Mail products as well as Parcelforce Express items within the UK and to the EU.
Examples of the Recorded Signed For, 2nd class Letter <100g (£1.13), 1st class Large Letter 170g £1.86)
The machine dispenses a certificate of posting upon which the RSF label number must be affixed. Unfortunately, but sensibly, the certificate has to be posted over the counter to receive the counter date stamp as proof of posting. It remains to be seen whether there is a fast-track queue for this service, otherwise the benefits of speed by using the Post and Go will be lost.
Birds 4 are expected at Broadway soon. Pictures when we have them.
