Unpaid and Shortpaid IBI Postage Meter and PC Postage Products

Today on Postal Explorer we posted an advance copy of our proposed Federal Register notice to implement revenue assurance procedures for information-based indicia (IBI) postage generated from postage meters, Click-N-Ship, and PC Postage products.

Deficiencies caused by counterfeiting, replicating, duplicating, falsifying, or otherwise modifying IBI the label result in a loss of revenue for the Postal Service. We will use mail processing equipment and ancillary information systems to detect and capture data for mailpieces with unpaid or shortpaid postage.

We encourage customers to review and comment within 30 days after being published in the Federal Register. We’ll use the DMM Advisory to keep you informed.
