A curious one - when adding a Royal Mail package, the app displays that it's unable to provide tracking information as 'Royal Mail declines third party developers access to their tracking results'.

However, Royal Mail have a package tracking API available here, with a full OpenAPI specification. Can this be implemented in Delivieries?

Thanks for your feedback!

I'm aware that Royal Mail has a proper API. Unfortunately, nothing changed in regards of who may use it - in order to gain access to the required API credentials, you need to supply a "10 digit Royal Mail Account number" (which I cannot get) and even then, API usage is limited to 50 request/day (with no indication on if/how this can be increased).

I've had multiple correspondences with their customer service to get an exception from this policy to no avail sad
