New product codes | Royal Mail

We’re changing the product codes for Royal Mail 24® and Royal Mail 48®

Over the last few years we have been introducing barcoded labels to provide online Delivery Confirmation to thousands of Royal Mail 24® and Royal Mail 48® customers.

To differentiate between the barcoded service and the legacy service which does not support online Delivery Confirmation, we now need to introduce new product codes.

Does this change affect me?

Shipping solution

If you currently use a Royal Mail Parcel Shipping Solution such as Click & Drop®, Royal Mail API Shipping or a third-party provider to produce barcoded labels, you don’t need to do anything.

OBA account

If you create manual sales orders in OBA (Online Business Account), and do not currently use a Shipping Solution, you will need to use a new product code which will be automatically added to your OBA account. You will not be able to raise sales orders in OBA against the old product codes after 30 June 2018.

The new product codes

The new product codes are now available to use in OBA and you should start using them straightaway.
