How does Business Mail Advanced work ?

To use Business Mail Advanced you will need to: 

• Have defined letter parameters including address location and clear zones. 
• Apply for a Royal Mail licence: DPS can do this for you.
• Regularly mail at least 500 items in a batch. 
• Complete an Online Business Account (OBA) form. 
• Present the letters in trays. 

Royal Mail sorting machines will read the license number, check the letters for address accuracy and allocate a discount on a ‘per letter’ basis for all items automatically sorted. Any items that fail to be automatically sorted are charged as standard franked meter items.

What Discount Will I Receive ?

Each automatically sorted letter will be discounted by 10.5% on 1st Class and 15% on 2nd Class based on the franking tariff.

There is also an additional discount of up to 7.5% based on the volume of letters you send.

The discounts are received by YOU automatically in the form of a rebate. You don’t need to do anything extra.
