Am new to eBay. I sold something today to be posted on Monday , if I buy Royal mail postage stamps through eBay , do l still need to make it signed for ? A friend just told me no , that Royal mail online eBay postage now has Delivery confirmation for first & second class posts. How true is this ? Many thanks for your views.

I do not normally pay for postage that way but I assume it depends what service you use.

i.e if you just use their standard service then no, you will not receive confirmation. You need to select their "Signed For" service for confirmation to be received when the item is delivered.

I assume they mean the tracking number is automatically added when you purchase the service through eBay now if you select the "Signed For" service, rather than having to manually enter the number.

No problem, always keep in mind how much Royal Mail cover for too:

£20 - Standard service
£50 - Signed For
£500 (can be increased) - Special Delivery

If you buy online signed for postage you still have to take it to the post office to get a signed for barcode attached.

The QR codes (barcoding) of parcels by RM is still being rolled out. If you have a business account or use selected services like Click and Drop you might be able to print a barcoded label which will give delivery confirmation for no additional cost. At the moment, it is not available for over the counter services.

Royal Mail have added delivery confirmation to 1st and 2nd class small and medium parcels when you pay with online postage. Even better, if you buy and print postage on eBay, they will automatically add the Delivery Confirmation for you.

Delivery Confirmation is not a fully tracked service and you will only receive confirmation of delivery. It is not available for large letters, nor for items posted to Channel Islands or the Isle of Man. You also won’t get the confirmation if you don’t purchase your postage online.

It’s also worth noting that there is no signature collected, you’ll need to use Royal Mail Signed For if you want the recipient to sign for your parcel, or if you wish a fully tracked service then Special Delivery may better suit your needs.

Using Royal Mail’s Delivery Confirmation service means that you will be able to check online, when your item has been delivered or delivery has been attempted, at no extra cost.
