Agreed Deposit Balance
If you choose to pre-pay for your postage, you hold an agreed deposit balance with Pitney Bowes that reflects your typical monthly mailing volumes. As and when you download postage we collect the difference to ensure the balance is kept at the agreed level. For example, if your agreed deposit balance is £200, we will automatically collect £200 from your account. When you download postage we will collect the difference to ensure your balance is maintained at £200, ready for your next transaction
