What is a Postage Meter?

A postage meter allows you to print postage onto your letters without requiring stamps.

Anatomy of a postage meter.

Postage meters of all sizes do basically the same job and all Postage meters have to be licensed by the USPS®.

Postage meters use  red ink to print indicias for USPS® postage. Ink costs are much lower than you would expect making it very affordable.

  • Weighing scale with USPS® rates for pricing letters and parcels
  • Ink cartridge compartment
  • Letter feeding area
  • Security module that keeps your money safe
  • Color touch screen and one button


Postage Meters fit any business size whether large, small or start-up.

From small eBay businesses all the way up to large corporations, but they all basically do the same job just with different speeds and features i.e. some Postage Meters have automatic feeders and some have software connections to download account data .


Postage Meters download their postage straight into the machine.

Postage Meters can use either your telephone line, your network or broadband router connection or your Wi-Fi depending on the model.

There’s no more lining up at the post office with a Postage Meter, we set up a postage account for you usually by direct debit and then you download whatever postage you need for that month, downloading is free if you download once per month .
