Neopost USA Alerts Meter Users to 2017 Postage Price Reduction

Neopost USA, a provider of hardware and software solutions to mailers and shippers of all sizes, has some good news for postage meter users. New United States Postal Service® rates, scheduled to go into effect on January 22, 2017, will save meter customers six percent on their First-Class Mail®.

“The six percent price reduction is an immediate money-saving benefit for every business mailer who uses a postage meter,” says Vincent J. DeAngelis, Neopost USA’s Vice President, Postal Relations, and Shipping Product Management. “The potential savings from this price reduction proves the inherent value of using a postage meter to trim operating expenses and Neopost USA encourages mailers to re-invest those savings into other USPS products and services.”

This chart shows the amount of money businesses can save on every piece of metered First-Class Mail.
