Royal Mail First Class Parcel (RM FCP)

Royal Mail First Class Parcel is a level of service that is not trackable. This means you will not receive a tracking number and the parcel is uninsurable. Please note this for all future orders with this chosen service level.

If you would like to have tracking for an order leaving our UK facility, please use another level of service or use a different carrier. You will also want to make sure you are only using insurable carriers.
