Pitney Bowes & USPS Automated Postage Verification (APV)

Posted on Fri, Feb 23, 2018 @ 01:38 PM
 

Last year, the U.S. Postal Service implemented Automated Postage Verification, which automatically evaluates dimensions, weight, package types and zones during processing to confirm the correct postage amount. If the calculated postage differs from the postage paid for the shipment, USPS notifies Pitney Bowes of the discrepancy.

On March 3, 2018, Pitney Bowes will begin applying postage payment adjustments for overpayments and underpayments to your pre-paid postage account. We strongly encourage all shipping managers to learn about the root causes of postage adjustments and how to avoid them.

 ENSURING ACCURATE POSTAGE

 


3 Common Postage Errors (and how to avoid them)

  • Weighing items incorrectly - Weigh your item and round up. USPS rounds up to the next pound or ounce.
  • Exceeding weight limit for mail class - For example, First-Class Package service can only be used for packages under 15.999 oz; anything over the weight limit must use Priority Mail.
  • Entering wrong package dimensions - Measure your package and enter the length, width and height into StarShip.

Learn more about USPS Automated Postage Verification along with steps to ensure accurate postage.
