How does the service work?
After identifying a franking machine supplier and before purchasing such equipment, the company applies to the Postmaster General for permission to use the service.
If permission is granted the applicant is forwarded the rules governing the service and is required to pay the annual license fee of $400.00 and renewal becomes payable on January 1 of each year in order to continue the use of the service.
After stage 2 is completed, permission is granted to use the service.
Company is required to bring the machine to the post office along with a cheque for the sum required to load on the machine. As the machine is used, it will be necessary to bring a cheque with the amount to be loaded on to the machine.
All mail must be brought to the post office on the date franked on the postal items.
The Postmaster General reserves the right to conduct unannounced audits on all machines.
