Royal Mail Click & Drop is an online service that allows you to purchase and print your postage from their website without having to waste time standing in line.
Simply purchase your postage, print your labels and post all your parcels off at your nearest Postbox, Royal Mail Customer Service Point or Post Office® Branch at once. This is a great way to save time that you can spend elsewhere, and reduce your postage costs.
Getting set up is easy and takes just a few minutes to sign up to Royal Mail’s service. With Create’s New Order Management Tools, you can download your orders to import into Click & Drop all at once.

You’ll be mapping your columns to match up your spreadsheet information with what Royal Mail requires. Royal Mail will remember your choices for this so you’ll only need to map it once.
*Royal Mail will clearly state the required fields you have mapped, by showing a green tick next to the field. Please ensure that that all required fields are mapped.
Choose each column name from the drop down list to match the name of the column, there are a couple listed that you don’t need to map which you’ll see in the full list below:
Safe place (you don’t need to map this)
Address book reference
Fullname (you don’t need to map this)
Address Line 1
Address Line 2
Address Line 3
Click the blue Import Orders button to process the order information into Royal Mail’s system.
Now that you’ve uploaded the orders you’ll be able to print your postage labels and book your parcels. For the steps on how to do this please see Royal Mail’s guides on Processing Your Orders >>
The new Order Management is still in its BETA phase and as a result, there may be some minor issues that you come across. If for any reason you need to access the old Order Management system you can do so at any time by clicking the link at the top of the new Order Management.
If you do experience any problems using the new tools or have any suggestions you would like to share with us on this feature, please contact your Account Manager who will be happy to help.
