Using the Pitney Bowes Reserve Account for Postage Funding
UPDATED: April 15, 2018
Use the Reserve Account to prepay for postage, which you can easily add to your meter.
The Reserve Account (FDIC Insured) is a prepaid deposit account to pay for postage for your meter, permit, and mailhouse. Funds are held in an FDIC-insured account at The Pitney Bowes Bank, Inc., and earn interest in the form of postage credits based on the average daily balance.
How to add funds into your Reserve Account:
- Mail your check with the Reserve Account Deposit Coupon.
TIP: See how to send a payment or deposit.
- Use our Scheduled Pay option to arrange electronic deposits at set intervals (monthly, weekly, semi-monthly), or when the balance reaches a minimum threshold you define. Set up recurring Reserve Account deposits.
