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 2 Shipping process which is compatible with Pro Shipping.

The Magento admin can manage shipping (create shipment/print label) using Magento's native interface used in the shipment process. There is no need to create shipments on the Royal Mail shipping panel, as this is automatically handled within Magento 2. The process is totally synchronised so that a shipment created in Magento 2 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. There is no additional fee for Shipping API subscription. This extension integrates Royal Mail Shipping API V2 with the Magento Shipping process which is compatible with Pro Shipping.
