Read this if you use AddressPal or DPD Parcel Wizard services...

(Apologies if this is old news)

I was wondering what would happen with ParcelMotel, AddressPal etc after Jan 1st, and AFAIK nobody is saying anything definite.

Well I just saw this on the AddressPal site:

___________________

From January 1st 2021 Post Office/Collection Point addresses can no longer be used.
___________________________

So it looks like the €3.95 option with collection and payment at your local Post Office is gone from Jan 1st. There is still PO collection option but the price will be higher than €3.95


Here's the full text:

-----------------------------------------------
January 2021 Update
Deliveries:

From January 1st 2021 deliveries from the UK are changing due to customs.
When shopping online use your Home Delivery AddressPal virtual address (see below for address examples).

From this date, your Post Office/Collection Point AddressPal virtual address can no longer be used when importing items.

However, once the parcel has been processed we will let you know by email or text and you will then have the option to redirect your parcel to any of the following:

A Post Office/Collection Point
A Parcel Locker
A neighbour
A safe place
Or select an alternative date for delivery

This will apply for UK and USA AddressPal items.

Payment details:

From January 1st 2021 payment for all AddressPal items must be taken from a Credit/Debit card that is saved on your AddressPal account. Without a valid card your parcel cannot be delivered. You will only be charged once we process your AddressPal deliveries.

Note: All UK items will be subject to Revenue customs rules from January 1st 2021.
If there are customs fees related to your item, you will be contacted with more information.

From the 1st of January 2021 AddressPal is updating with more delivery options, offering you choice and flexibility. Click here for details.
From this date, all deliveries from the UK will cost €6.50 for items up to 20kg.

Just means I won't use AddressPal anymore. I'm certainly not giving a 3rd party company working for An Post access to my bank account.

As negotiations are still ongoing at the moment, exactly how goods between Ireland (South) & the UK cannot be answered difinitively as of today.


Worst case is without any agreement,, there will be a lot more tariffs & duty to pay.
Best Case - they come to agreement & we pay less tariffs & duty.


It's all up in the air but Irish delivery companies are being prepared now for a no deal & acting accordingly.

I wasn't notified (and I'm a very heavy user) and neither were loads of others.

My reading of the ops post is existing card details registered on the account will be used, I don't see any change here apart of course the new prices?
