    Royal Mail Certificate of Posting
    A free Certificate of Posting is available from all Post Offices and must be used at the time of sending an item. This gives you compensation cover 100 times the price of a first class stamp [£39 correct at April 2009]. Items sent by airmail, first or second class standard are covered when using this. Please only use this if your goods are worth under £39.

    Recorded delivery costs an extra 75p [correct at April 2009] on the price of first or second class postage.

    PLEASE NOTE
    - a signature is not guaranteed with Recorded delivery items
    - Recorded delivery items are placed in the same bag as standard first/second class items
    - ‘Tracking’ only occurs after an attempted delivery has made or a successful delivery has been made and the scanned document is uploaded at the sorting office to the Royal Mail website
    - Recorded delivery items offer the same compensation as standard mail £39 [correct at April 2009].
    - Cash and tickets are NOT covered by the compensation policy. Please use Special Delivery ONLY.
    - if a signature is not obtained, you can contact Customer Service and they will send you a book of 12x First Class Stamps.

    Special Delivery
    Guaranteed next day delivery before 1pm which is fully tracked at every point of its journey.

    PLEASE NOTE
    - Compensation cover is inclusive at £500 and you can purchase additional compensation up to £2,500 for extra cost.
    - The maximum weight you can send is 10kgs
    - Covers you when sending cash/tickets through the post
    - If you are sending tickets with a close deadline to the concert/show, consider paying extra for consequential loss

    PLEASE NOTE
    - If you are using a courier to send an expensive item, please make sure you check that the insurance levels offered by the carrier as often you have to pay extra

    What about eggpay ? - always used to use that when plumb1 bought my sims (maaan....thats going back!)

    # It's free.

    # It'll get there quicker than a cheque in the post.

    # More convenient than a cheque - no special trips to the bank and no queues to pay it in.

    # There's no need to share your bank details.

    # Track the payment - you'll be told by email as soon as they've collected it.

    Eggpay, lol that’s a blast from the past. To be honest I thought that was closed/done with, or perhaps I mixed that up with Natwest’s Fastpay. Either way, yes, Eggpay is fine, I’ll add it to the list.

    It could be worth adding to the section on Recorded delivery, that if they don't get a signature, you can contact Customer Service and they'll send you a book of 12x First Class Stamps.

    There's going to be a lot of people making profit on bubblewrap and brown paper then.

    My bubble wrap is specially imported from Columbia.

    Its 30% unicorn and as such - my postage costs will reflect this.
