Purchase Power Explained

Print this support article

Purchase Power is a credit facility that works just like a traditional credit card, but without the piece of plastic.

It eliminates the need for you to pay in advance for postage, and allows you to reset your postage meter as and when required up to your credit limit, we will continue to pay An Post on your behalf, as you refill.

One Invoice is generated each month, billing you for any purchases made in the last 30 days. 

Flexible payment terms allow you to choose to pay either the minimum, the full amount or anything in between.

When setting up your account, you are able to choose from 14 different billing dates, allowing you to pick a date that works best to fit in with your internal processes and payment runs.

You have 25 days to pay your invoice, which can be by either Direct Debit or BACS. If you pay by Direct Debit, payment will be collected from your bank account 15 days after the date your invoice was generated.


Consolidated billing option
  • Save time and money on any costs involved in making multiple payments by adding other Pitney Bowes purchases to your Purchase Power invoice*
  • Fully itemised invoices
*Please note: Lease invoices do not currently bill to Purchase Power
