Why You Can't Buy a Postage Meter

Postage meters are a great way for businesses to save time and money on essential postage. Unfortunately, you cannot just buy a postage meter, so if you need one for your business, the only option is to rent or lease one from a dealer.

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.

Why Not Just Use Stamps?

There are a great number of advantages to renting a postage meter from an authorized supplier:

  • Postage costs are discounted and there are other cost savings
  • Large volumes of mail can be processed quickly
  • Reduced need for trips to the post office
  • Better cost visibility
  • Faster and easier than manual mail processing

Where Can I Rent a Postage Meter?

The following dealers are authorized to manufacture or lease postage meters:

How Much Does It Cost to Rent a Postage Meter?

Postage meter rental prices vary considerably as there are a huge range of machine sizes, capabilities and services available. Postage meter rental prices do not cover postage prices, as these are charged by USPS rather than the meter provider.

Machine rental prices range from $20 per month for an entry level, basic model for small businesses to over $1,000 per month for state of the art mail processing hubs.
