Why Aren't Postage Meters For Sale?
Under federal law, postage is considered to be currency and the printing of postage is therefore strictly regulated by the United States Postal Service (USPS).
There are very strict rules on the manufacture and use of postage meters and they can therefore only be leased to businesses by authorized dealers. Postage meters absolutely cannot be purchased. This policy applies to both new and used machines.
