Upcoming Meter Requirements

 

Pitney Bowes is committed to helping you run your business efficiently. You may have to replace your equipment soon to ensure your meter has all the benefits of our modern, digital, USPS® compliant technology.

Two Important Dates Coming Up

There are two important dates coming up that may require you to take action:

October 1st, 2022

Analog (telephone) connections will no longer be supported. To continue using your postage meter, you’ll need to order a digital connection here.

June 30th, 2024

If your current postage meter is not USPS IMI-compliant, the USPS will decertify your machine. You would still be able to use your original machine up until December 31, 2024, at which point it will be marked inactive by the USPS. Postage indicia printed by IBI technology will no longer be considered valid postage for use or refunds after June 30, 2025. Our new machines are digitally connected and comply with the 2024 USPS regulations.

What is IBI vs IMI technology?

Many of our Pitney Bowes meters are analog machines with older IBI technology and will need to be replaced with more advanced IMI technology.

Today, there are two types of meter technology, or Performance Criteria, in use:

  • Information Based Indicia (IBI) – will no longer be supported as of 2024
  • Intelligent Mail Indicia (IMI)—the new standard

USPS Intelligent Mail Indicia-Performance Criteria (IMI-PC) will provide more detailed real-time transaction data, enabling the USPS to automate operations, employ better security standards, and ensure correct postage is applied.

See if your current machine has the new IMI technology:

If your machine is IMI compliant you will not need to act.
