Can I post on an Economy Service?


First, second or Economy (third class)?

Royal Mail is the only postal provider to be able to post on an Economy service, (this used to be called Mailsort 3 and was delivered on a 5-7 delivery schedule, the prepaid postage impression (PPI) has not changed but the name has it is now called Economy mail and Royal Mail endeavour to deliver 66% of this mail by day 4 of posting – they are increasing this percentage as the new systems bed in, but do bear in mind this Economy mail can still take longer than 4 days – so still exceptionally good where you are expecting telephone responses and want to spread the calls over a few days as the different mail centres will deliver on different schedules depending on the workload in their area.
