Buying Stamps

6 Dec '20

It’s relatively easy to buy small amounts of 1st and 2nd class stamps online (add them to grocery orders) but larger amounts is trickier, especially if you need sheets of stamps and make up values e.g. 10 pence.

I spent an hour trying to order from the Royal Mail website, but all attempts failed. I tried different computers, different browsers and different bank cards.

Finally gave up and have ordered from something called MyPostShop, although they didn’t have everything I wanted.

Has anyone else tried Royal Mail’s website lately?

I bought some stamps from it a few months ago.

People may be buying stamps for Christmas cards. Or the website may be down for a short time.

Lots of shops sell stamps now. Tesco & Smiths.
