Someone talked about this eBay user in another post the other day. (Courier
Service).

Has anyone else used it? I was using Parcels2Go but it looks like they over
the same service (DHL) at a lot cheaper price

Parcels2Go = �9.98

Payperdrop_uk = �5.99.

Sounds a silly question but am I missing something here? They do seem to
good to be true?

If this is true does this mean cheaper postage for all!!!

Thanks

Mark

We use PPD quite a lot after the fall of several 'other' ebayers supplying
the same service at their basic cost & the only difference is the profit
margins PPD are getting which will be less than P2G or Interparcel.

Another good service on eBay was SendYourParcels who've stopped suppling the
service whilst they sort their website booking form out

Parcel2go are just a bunch of money grabbing wankers. You will probably get
a better service from paperdrop - Having said that it's not hard to give
better service in the event of a problem than P2Shite.

�5.99 is very very cheap though. I was chatting to a mate who delivers for
DHL a while back and he mentioned that DHL went through a stage of offering
ridiculously cheap contract rates to get market share (we're talking �1-�2
per parcel next day) so I wonder if these guys are on one of those
contracts.

Sounds like they will be under one of those contracts, the questions is how
long will it last?

They are doing a great service (Pity DHL are not as good!)

Just making the most of it while we have it!

They state one collection and one delivery attempt otherwise extra
charges will be the result.

Do they really only attempt once and charge if they try again, who pays
for the re-try.

That's what's put me off these before.
