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®.
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.
Transitioning to a different meter?
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 mailing system communicates with the Pitney Bowes Data Center as part of its operations. Tasks that may occur when connected include:
- Refill postage
- Update postal rate data
- Perform required postal inspections
- Add new features & software
- Receive new graphics and ads for printing
