It begins later in the summer to some addresses within the M25 motorway.
Around 100 of the busiest delivery offices across the UK will be open on Sunday afternoons.
At the moment, they are open six days a week.
Some items ordered online will also be delivered on Sundays, as part of the new trial.
Shoppers who choose the Sunday service through registered retailers will receive a text between 30 and 90 minutes before delivery.
Royal Mail Chief executive Moya Greene said: "Through these new Sunday services, we are exploring ways to improve our flexibility and provide more options for people to receive items they have ordered online.
"The support of the Communication Workers Union has enabled us to respond quickly to a changing market, underlining the importance of the ground-breaking Agenda for Growth agreement."
