Purchase Power Postage Fee
UPDATED: 19 February 2016
Purchase Power® improves your cash flow by allowing you to conveniently mail now and pay for postage later. Pitney Bowes will pay the United States Postal Service when you download postage onto your meter and you will have the option to pay us back over time once you receive the bill.
As part of your meter relationship, we cover the costs associated with advancing these funds up to a set amount per billing month automatically. Postage downloads exceeding that amount within a billing month will be charged a postage overage fee in the amount of 1% of the amount that is over, with a minimum of $1.
If you go over the postage overage limit noted in your terms and conditions by $100 within one billing month you would be charged a $1 postage overage fee for that month.
