    At the bit where you upload your CV there's also a thingy for uploading a cover letter but it let me carry on without it. I'm assuming not writing one won't do me any favours, but will it rule me out entirely?

    It will probably stop you being competitive. it's not that they won't read your application, it's just that those with covering letters will probably be stronger. If they give the opportunity to upload one you should definitely use it.

    If they are asking for one then yes. I think next to each primark job there is a clickable link that gives you a list of qualities and skills they're looking for. Just explain how you have those and why you'd be good for the job. If they have a page for Cover letter and you don't write one, they probably think you can't be bothered.
