Default UK Royal Mail delivery. How do you do?

Hello guys,

Im selling on ebay UK since 5 months, now the sales are rising and I just find annoying wait the queue in the Post Office every day, post the items, buy stamps every week... I lose too time!

I know there is a way to pay Royal Mail and they collect the item from your home/business, I was wondering if you guys do this, and how is your experience... And one last question Should I have a registered business to contract this?

Apologies for my English.

I just post everything in the receptacal at Mount Pleasant, at any time up to 7:30 PM. I save so much time this way, since I have thoasands of stamps already and it is all small enough to fit.

Since my business really took off and the money has been rolling in, things have been far easier. No more queues for me.

I love it when I have small item to post, has the letter box is just a less than minture away from me. For bulky items and expensive I send someone to post office and I pay him.
Sometimes i use Hermes if I have too many items per week.

Wish I had more time, so I can sell more and more.
So hard to juggle everything in one day.

Oh small items are the best!

I'm always stocked up with stamps at home - post box is basically 1 mins walk down from my house.

At times i could have over 100 items to send for that day - what i do is take 2-3 trips to the post office, it's rather close by as well.

I thought for royal mail to collect from your house / business premises you have to qualify by sending a certain amount of parcels a year?
