How to Update Rates

NOTE: RateGuard customers receive rate updates free. If you do not have RateGuard, you will be charged a one-time fee.

Choose one of the following three rate update options:

1. Update via Analog Phone Line

If you use an analog phone line to download postage on your OptiMail 30, you can update your postal rates electronically.

Connection Problems: Due to the large number of customers attempting to download rates simultaneously, you may experience a busy signal when attempting to connect via phone line. Please continue to retry until you successfully download and update your rates.

2. Update via Internet using MailCredit software connection

If you have MailCredit software in your rental package, you can download new rates over the Internet through your computer, which in turn will update the OptiMail 30 machine. You can purchase the MailCredit software for an additional fee if you don’t already own it.

3. Update with Rate Card

OptiMail 30 customers who are unable to download rate updates electronically should complete the rate card order form.
