This is purely for ebay sales.
Link your ebay account to your parcel2go account.
You must not use the ebay postage.
Go to parcel2go and click "ebay delivery"
It will upload your orders, add the weight and size etc, and select service.
The price has been reduced to £1.59+VAT so £1.91 all in for myhermes drop shop with no insurance.
There is no insurance so best for low value items only but if you dont need insurance then its fine.
This is likely due to matching the ebay shutl offer etc so will likely end on or around 14th.

You'll would have to be mad to send anything via hermes with no insurance. …You'll would have to be mad to send anything via hermes with no insurance. They lose 90% of the parcels sent through them.


Send 100s of parcels through them through my business. Using them for a couple of years and they have lost 2. My maths is not great but pretty sure that works out less than 90%. I am sure your statistic that you got from someone down the pub is far more accurate though.

Probably better just packing the item up, taking it outside and dumping it in the wheelie bin yourself. You'd save any postage costs and hassle for the same amount of effort.
This myhermes price war/drop is proving brilliant for sellers. Ebay doing this, pushing Parcel2Go to react. Fantastic for businesses.

You'll get the usual "myhermes is rubbish" - the poster above "They lose 90% of the parcels sent through them." what a load of rubbish, The service has improved massively and this is a great deal

Nonsense IME. I have had more lost parcels with Royal Mail than Myhermes and no one goes accusing them of losing 90% of parcels. MyHermes have a (mostly) undeserved bad rep. The other benefit of MyHermes is on the few times I have had something damaged or go missing they have been very fast to respond and offer fast convenient compensation, where as Royal Mail takes an age to respond, especially for international items, which are typically the ones that go missing the most and then you eventually get a cheque, which takes another 7 days plus to clear. Cheques in this day and age

I'm not even sure they're a 50/50 service where there's a chance you may even get completion of the service you pay for. Sadly the reviews about this company indicate they are.

My company dispatches around 600 items a month via it's marketplace platforms, and even though these guys are competitively cheaper, I wouldn't touch them with a barge pole. Around two (maybe three) years ago I decided to use them during the Christmas period to handle the delivery of a certain product we were selling at the time (due to sizing). The biggest mistake I have ever made (I've made a few in my time). I don't have the statistics to hand, but around 40% of the orders dispatched never made it to their destination.

I literally cringe now when I know that any incoming parcel is sent via MyHermes, whether that be commercially or domestically. I've sat at home once to open the door to take the dogs for a walk and a MyHermes driver has been walking down my drive. He's only gone and left the parcel in the bin without even trying to alert any of the household members using the common channels - a simple knock or by using the doorbell.

I appreciate that if you're just using this company to send the occasional package from time to time then the chances are you won't see their failings, but they do happen, and they do happen often.

Each to their own though, I guess. This is obviously just my opinion, but I'd rather pay the difference and use alternative routes for my deliveries. I'd personally recommend DPD, but at the same time understand that there are possibly people that have experienced the same issues I have with MyHermes with DPD.

Hermes been good for me over the years, much more reasonable than the state run GPO.
Agree that a price war/drop is good, but then the Royal Mail small parcel under 2kg is only £2.90. For that I lose probably 1 in 200 parcels and then it's just a case of filling out the compensation form and claiming.

If I were to switch to this, how easy is it to claim compensation and do you need a printer to do the labels (I haven't got one).

With any luck Royal Mail will reduce their cost?
The service you receive will be dependent on area.

how do you post your 200 parcels without a printer? surely you dont queue up at the post office?
Hermes have been fine for me for years and never had any issues with lost parcels. Can't say the same for Royal Mail where I have had parcels damaged or never made their distinction in the past.

Well, the statement was made regarding 200 parcels, I think it would be quite ignorant to assume those 200 parcels were sent in the same day

But yes, I have known 200+ labels to be wrote out when the ink has unexpectedly depleted at the worse time possible.

I agree, it is the second time now that my items are sent back as "no one was at home" while i was at home the whole day (days). Also their customer service is awful and incredibly incompetent. Avoid them.
NEVER used hermes, drivers with no common sense, not in they throw your parcels over your gate so far they could win a gold at olympics...shame they smash your items...or leave a ipad out in rain
Anything over 2kg send via UPS, hermes...snail mail
Will give it a try

Unfortunately not a proper business then.
I've worked for HERMES delivering 100 parcels a day . In 7 months I've had one go missing . It all depends if your parcel is with a courier with a heart and treats your goods with respect. Young,old, rich,or,poor, I deliver you your parcel the day I see it .
Hmm..myhermes and eBay, one offer after the other trying to attract customers... desperate situations require desperate measures... anyone that was unlucky enough to have to deal with their CS, wonder how its possible them to be still in business...

Never got all the hate with Hermes, been using them for years & not had any issues with damage. Been sending boxes of car bulbs with them lately, no bubble wrap & of the 40 or sold sold in the last month or 2 no one has had any issues with damaged items.

Prefer them over the likes of Parcelforce who will deliver your items if they feel like it & not in the 24/48h time frame that was paid for!

Ive also used them alot and they are terrible. The dont have insurance on most items and lost plenty of things I've sent, its an incredibly weak service. The delivery drivers are normal everyday people not actual contracted workers. Worth paying that bit more for a reliable service.
Well i've used them to send 3 golf clubs recently, begrudgingly so after previous comments. I am however willing to give them a chance seen as the golf clubs won't fit in a bin

I lost £120 from goods that I never got and showed as delivered. I ask for a written proof of delivery from hermes and they just play stupid,...same with eBay, they didn't gave me any refund, although one of the senders admited that got the lost item back...after wasting endless hours trying to communicate with incompetent hypocrites, the only thing left to do is to send a written complain to their HQ...12 years on eBay, spending literally many £Ks...dont touch them again.

I just don't understand how these guys are still operating. They've lost my parcel in the past and 3 of my friends parcels recently.

How have they not been investigated yet?
I wouldn't be surprised if the people sticking up for myHermes on here worked for them. Anyone that has had a minimal business level use out of them and beyond knows they are appalling.

Completely agreed, I asked them that question when they last told me my item wasn't insured by them. £200 down the drain
Used Hermes all the time for the past 3-4 years and probably went over 50 items and never lost a parcel.
I have cancelled many an online order when I found out they used Hermes to deliver goods. Apalling company with no support for deliveree. I write to retailers saying that by using such a poor company to deliver their goods they are showing contempt for their customers and I will no longer order from them. Cannot believe John Lewis use them.

Absolute trash company.

Sent two parcels with them in the past (at different times). One "lost", one smashed to pieces. Zero compensation.

These guys are s c u m with a capital S.
Probably sent over 1000 parcels with Hermes, they're quite good with only a small number of them lost. Parcel2go CS is a bit useless though
