(Last modified February 1, 2022)
“Package(s)” means parcels, letters, and flats shipped under this Agreement.
“Carrier” means a third-party shipping vendor that you use within the Service.
“Tender” means the transfer of physical custody of a Package that has a PBI compliant shipping label affixed to it, by you to a Carrier as demonstrated by the scanning of the label by the Carrier.
Use of the Service
In order to use the Service, you must complete the registration process. You may permit your third party contractors to access the Service solely on your behalf and for your benefit so long as the contractor agrees to fully comply with all terms and conditions applicable to the Service. You remain responsible for each contractor’s compliance with those terms and conditions and any breach of those terms. All rights granted to any contractor under these terms terminate immediately upon (i) conclusion of the services provided by the contractor to you that gives rise to such right or (ii) termination of your account or your use of the Service.
Each individual Package Tendered for shipment must originate from a location in the U.S. or certain U.S. territories. You agree that you will only Tender Packages to a Carrier with shipping labels that correspond to the transportation method you selected.
The fees for the use of the Service don’t include the postage, shipping or other charges imposed by the Carrier for printing postage or labels and sending Packages through the United States Postal Service (the “USPS”) or another Carrier.
Credit Cards; Accounts with The Pitney Bowes Bank, Inc.
Unless (i) you have established and maintain a Purchase Power® account or a Reserve Account with The Pitney Bowes Bank, Inc. (the “Bank”) and (ii) you have available funds in a Reserve Account or have available credit under a Purchase Power account, then as long as you’re utilizing the Service or have an outstanding balance with us, you'll provide us with valid credit card information. You’ll replace the information for any credit card that expires with information for a different valid credit card. Some charges for the sending of parcels may be billed directly by the Carrier. For all other charges for postage or for the sending of parcels through the Service, including, without limitation, any charges imposed by a Carrier for which the charges paid by you were insufficient (all such charges are called “Shipping Charges”) and all fees for the use of the Service, we will charge your Reserve Account, if established, with any remaining unpaid balance being charged to your Purchase Power account, if established. In the event that (i) you do not maintain a Reserve Account or a Purchase Power account with the Bank or (ii) you do not have available funds in a Reserve Account and do not have available credit under a Purchase Power account, all such fees and charges will be charged to your credit card together with a convenience fee of 3½% of the amount of all Shipping Charges and you authorize us to do so.
If you use the Service for shipping with the USPS, you must comply with all applicable terms listed at https://www.usps.com. Failure to comply will constitute a material breach and the USPS will provide written notice of termination. However, if allowed by USPS, you will have ten (10) days from date notice is received from USPS or a copy of such written notification from us, whichever is earlier, to cure your violations of USPS policies and procedures and have USPS rescind its termination notice.
You may be entitled to receive discounted rates for Packages you Tender to the USPS for shipment. Rates are subject to change at any time.
Non-USPS Carrier Requirements
If you use the Service to send Packages with a Carrier other than the USPS, you must comply with the requirements of that Carrier.
