If your company does a good amount of shipping, you know the problem: Bills. Lots of bills. Sent by different carriers (FedEx, UPS, DHL and others) and often with different due dates. Paying shipping bills on time can be stressful, frustrating and take hours. That’s where carrier payment options may be a real lifesaver. It consolidates all your carrier bills into one simple invoice. In other words, pay one and done. And you don’t have to change the way you work with your carriers. Sound good? Then read on.
Keep it simple: Carrier payment options does exactly that.
Get your carrier bills paid automatically* with a dedicated business credit line, from The Pitney Bowes Bank, Member FDIC. This eliminates the worry of late payment fees. At the end of the billing period, you receive a single, consolidated statement from us that lists the totals from your shipping bills. At the same time, you still have access to the itemized statements provided by your carrier(s). However, with the Pitney Bowes consolidated invoice, it’s as simple as one easy payment, saving time and hassles. Other benefits include:
- Keep the same carriers and rates. No changes to the way you ship.
- Gain an up-to-date, centralized view of all your shipping bills.
- Enhance your cash flow with flexible payment terms.
How to switch to carrier payment options in 3 easy steps.
Step 1: Speak to a financial representative from Pitney Bowes Bank.
Find out how easy it is to set up a business credit line with Pitney Bowes. If you’re a Pitney Bowes SendPro® client, much of the information is already completed. Your existing account can be expanded to include this useful service.
Step 2: Fill out a form that lists your current carrier accounts.
This one-time form redirects all your carrier shipping charges to Pitney Bowes for payment. Your relationships with all your carriers and your negotiated rates stay exactly the same. Continue to ship as you always have. If you make changes to your carrier services later on, you can easily add or remove carrier accounts.
Step 3: Get approved and you're good to go.
Once you’re approved and your account is set up, you’ll get a centralized view of all your shipping charges – across all carriers and all locations, including those working remotely. Stay on top of your carrier spend to plan your budget more consistently. Use the flexibility of your payment terms to make your cash flow more predictable. At each billing period, pay the minimum, the full amount or something in between. Most carrier payment option accounts can be set up quickly.
No one wants a long, complicated process. Pitney Bowes makes it a breeze. Your financial representative can help handle your approval and setup. Imagine, saying goodbye to stacks and stacks of carrier bills. Isn’t it time you took control of your shipping payments? With carrier payment options, you pay one consolidated invoice. Simple as that.
