We pay £10 per kilogram (1kg) of genuine unsorted stamps. If you anverage just 4kg of stamps each month, this would equate to £480 in donations from us for the year.

We do not charge anything for our services however if a volunteer/fundraiser sends stamps with inadequate postage, Royal Mail charge a flat fee of £1.50 to £2 plus the postage surcharge. These Royal Mail fees are deducted from your monthly cheques.

We only ever reject stamps if they have previously been sorted or picked over in any way by you or your volunteers/fundraisers. A useful barometer when assessing the quality of your stamps is whether the mix contains a good proportion of unfranked/mint stamps.If not, it is usually a sign that the batch has little commercial value as the interesting stamps have already been removed.

Essentially, all you need to do is setup a collection box in your shop. We will:

  • - supply you with leaflets and material to stick onto the box
  • - provide you with prepaid labels to send the stamps off once you get to around 3kg
  • - Send you a cheque in the first 3 weeks of the month for stamps received in the previous month.
