Royal Mail is the UK's most trusted letters and parcels delivery company. It provides a 6-days-a-week, one-price-goes anywhere postal service across the UK. Royal Mail Shipping Manager module integrates Royal Mail's shipping API V2 with Magento. This integrates Royal Mail DMO features into Magento. The

Magento admin can manage shipping (create shipment/print label) using Magento's native interface used for shipment process. There is no need to create shipments on the Royal Mail shipping panel, as this is automatically handled within Magento. The process is totally synchronised so that a shipment created in Magento is automatically sent to the Royal mail shipping manager tool and labels are printed within Magento.

Please Note you will need an account on Royal Mail and API access to use this extension. Click here to register for Royal Mail shipping services.


Royal Mail Shipping Rates

Admin can manage royalmail shipping rates using rate matrix (Configure shipping rates) interface. Complex rate conditions based on weight and destination can also be configured easily. Shipping rates can be added in bulk using CSV import/export feature as well.

Additional Features

  • Admin can ship orders in mass using "Ship with Royal Mail" mass action in order grid. This is very helpful for organisations having large number of orders to be dispatched daily.
  • This extension also allows sellers to ship Flat Rate/Table Rate orders with Royal Mail Service.
  • Admin can create manifest manually or update the setting to automatically generate it at specified time.
  • You can view all orders shipped via Royal Mail in one place.

Note- We will provide free upgrade to M2 version which is already in progress and will be available very soon.
