True. That way, you can focus your attention on every parcel while it is been scanned by the shop keeper. Still need to check details on the receipts carefully. Because 1. The shop keeper can print receipts from previous scans. 2. The shop keeper could scan the previous parcels without you notice if they are good with their hands.
Just a suggestion, get 1 reciept per parcel each with different tracking numbers etc if u have more than one parcel.
The scam I experienced today at Collect+ is more damage to customers. The customers will not get any compensations from Collect+ if they fell for this scam. If I did not notice the scam, all record would show that I only posted 4 parcels, I never dropped off the other parcel at the shop. Not sure if the shop has CCTV, whether the CCTV pointed at the counter and recorded how many parcels I gave, and how long they keep the CCTV record. If I did not notice, it will be my words against his. And I would lost the parcel, and no compensation from collect+. They are so bad. Do not trust them blindly! Check your receipt agrees to the parcels you gave the shop keeper is my advice.
I had several parcels scanned at collect+ store a few years ago. I don't think he did what you said, but one parcel was a DVD recorder. Shop keeper asked me why parcel is so big/heavy, I stupidly said what it was, he then asked must be expensive dvd recorder, I said it is. I asked him was it to big etc to send but he just laughed it off! Of course It went missing! Collect+ investigated but just got my full compensation £100+ after waiting about two months.
I would like to draw your attention to a scam I just experienced in a collect+ shop. I already reported to Collect+ and ask them to investigate. I gave the shopper 5 parcels to scan. He gave me a receipt of 5 trackings. Only after detailed checking, there are duplicates in the trackings. He scanned some parcels more than once, and he did not scan some parcels. He will steal those parcels he did not scan. He made sure that the multiple scans of the same parcel appear in different places, not next to each other. So you cannot easily spot. I know a lot people would just trust the shop keepers to do the right thing, and probably not even bother to check the receipt. Some even not ask for a receipt at all. In this case, not only you have to check the number of tracking numbers are the same number as the number of parcels, but also you have to check that all tracking numbers on the receipt is unique. Otherwise, you will fall for this scam. (Collect+ postage receipt printing duplicate scans of tracking number which already scanned as new parcels make this scam more easily performed.) The scam is well thought and performed. The shop keeper was quite good at doing it and did not raise my suspection until I noticed the same tracking on the receipt. He must had done it before and had plenty of practise. He made sure that 1. The number of tracking printed on the receipt is the same number as the parcels you handed to him. 2. The duplicate scans of the same parcle are not done next to each other. So you do not spot easily. Collect+ needs to stop using those dishonest shops/people.

This was crazy hit 2K and then went quiet now its just shy of 4k!
With you. Thanks @MrSprkle I thought it was a specific label. Makes sense now.
You click the link Andy, select the retailer, so Argos eBay for example and it will give you the option to print in store or it will email you a label. each one is individual because you input your returns reference, RMA, Order number etc. example of hte label emailed here
@MrSprkle Do you have a link to the label or a larger image that the members can print off. I've enlarged the one you added but it's still too small to work I suspect.
Hot just used it

10% discount collect + couriers **Please do not post / share referrals**£4.99
Hi I just had an email to say I have 10% discount on collect + deliveries I know from before they are pretty good
Sorry to sound stupid but is there a code for this as I setup a new email account - and as another commented it did find all my old details but the price isnt discounted?? thanx
Good. Did a check on my Monday package and it was delivered on Tuesday - that's Economy! :)
Thanks worked for me
I did a check a few months ago to check delivered on time. 4 out of 5 Economy parcels were delivered next day just like the premium service. For those thinking of using Collect+, although this service is (to my mind) much more convenient than queueing in the Post Office, the price point is what makes it valuable. Today I sent a tracked Economy parcel weighing 2.5kg (so: slightly overweight) for £3.91. The Post Office equivalent was about £6.50.
Been using this since October last year, great service 20% also comes off added insurance and signature, Quidco never tracks so don't bother Use to a year ago or so not anymore usually takes 3 days from collection. True, and if the size is over as well.

And now for the REAL reviews from Trustpilot...Personally I'm very happy with the service Collect Plus provide. Only had trouble with one parcel and they sorted it quickly and easily.
What is so good about this offer? you get 2 day delivery for less with MyHermes? I have so far posted 500+ parcels with myHermes, can say 90% of them delivered within 2 days, only 3 parcels had problems so far.
Its ok if your parcel gets to the other end. Seems that both Hermes and Collect+ both have messed up BIG time of late for me. I'll gamble on the homeless junkie in town to deliver my parcels next time[image missing]

well heres an update the first parcel i sent was 1-3 day delivery and was delivered from ne scotland to glasgow in less than 24 hours but i sent another parcel and tried the economy way 3-5 days handing it in on the 28 th at 10am and to the same address but alas it has not arrived yet and after 2 phone calls today i found out that there is no parcel hub in scotland they are put to west midlands or yorkshire and the 1st day apparently doesnt count and neither does sat/sun and they said i would get a update by email in 2/3 hours today which surprise surprise i didnt and they are now telling me that it will probably be delivered by friday but no promises as they dont want to let me down and as it is not late yet for the 3-5 day delivery ??? it also takes 24 hours to get a response so folks beware
Back doors are too large to sent by Collect +
use them all the time for anything over 1kg as RM is now too expensive great service for the money only had one item damaged and I got a full payment for the item plus the delivery cost heat added
i used collect+ last week and if you want £50 cover with myhermes you have to pay an extra £1.25 but it is standard with collect+
Wrong! Both Collect+ and MyHermes offer £50 as standard.
