Setting up your new Pitney Bowes account and services
UPDATED: August 10, 2016
Set up your Pitney Bowes account and new mailing system by following these steps.
- Create your account profile
- Postage funding
- Connection methods
- Installation for your specific model (after creating your online profile and setting up postage and connection methods)
Follow the steps to create your account profile (if you don't have one already).
Refer to your account number(s) when signing up with our online account experience, or when making payments with a check or electronically. Register ALL accounts so you can: view bills and pay invoices; manage your postage account(s); create a case and track your open support cases.
Pitney Bowes mailing systems do not come with postage funds beyond your initial deposit. You need to load funds to the meter prior to use. Adding postage requires a postage account. The default payment option is Purchase Power®.
When you first set up your mailing system, postage will be automatically added to the meter from the initial deposit made during the contract process. After the deposit amount is used up, postage payments will need to come from other postage funding sources.
Initial postage can be paid for using the funds transferred from the returned meter. After that, you can fund postage using the methods you already have set up, or you can change your postage funding source.
Your digital mailing system communicates with the Pitney Bowes Data Center as part of its operations. Tasks that may occur during a sync include:
- Refill postage
- Update postal rate data
- Perform required postal inspections
- Add new features & software
- Receive new graphics and ads for printing
Your connection method depends on your system:
