Currently only for deliveries to the UK, ViaPost could still be used by all of us wanting to send letters to the UK as it is cheaper and quicker than International mail. Once you have clicked ‘print’ it takes three working days for your letter to be printed, placed in an envelope and delivered to its destination by Royal Mail. ViaPost have committed to shortening this time frame as soon as the size of their business allows them to.
There are some technical steps that users have to take to ensure that letters confirm to certain standards, but there are easy to follow step-by-step instructions given by ViaPost.
Hopefully a service like ViaPost will hit the shores of Australia soon, but we can still use it for mail from Australia to the UK.
