A quick and convenient way to pay for bulk mail.
Postage meters print an 'indicium' (markings that show postage has been paid) on your mail. You download the postage value via a modem - so this is a convenient way to pay for sending bulk mail.
Meters are usually programmed with various postage rates, depending on the type of mail you're sending. Once your postage has run out, you can easily download it again, at any time of day.
Postage meters are more advanced than franking machines because you can download your postage rather than taking the machine to your local Post Office.
Customers have the choice of sending letters to either the Priority or Regular delivery timetables.
