Payment Options for
Returned Business Reply Mail
You have three options to pay for
returned Business Reply Mail pieces:
• Postage Due Account; establish a Postage Due Account with
your local delivery Post Office. There is no cost or fee
to establish a Postage Due Account. The Postal Service
will automatically deduct the charges for all incoming postage
due mail from this account, including, but not limited
all BRM and Address Change notifications. The deductions
to this account are made automatically prior to delivery.
• Dedicated BRM advance deposit account; this account is
similar to a postage due account, however, the Postal
Service will only deduct BRM charges from this account. This
for separate accounting of BRM and other postage due
charges. You may maintain both a BRM advance deposit account
postage due account. The Postal Service requires an additional
annual fee to establish and maintain this dedicated account.
This type of account is required for Qualified Business
Reply Mail (QBRM) qualification.
• Payment upon delivery; take no special steps prior to
distributing Business Reply Mail (other than obtaining your BRM permit),
and the Postal Service will ask for payment upon delivery, before turning
the pieces over to you. Payment can be made by check, cash, or meter strip.
