Rental prices for postage meters with scales

Some businesses require a separate postage scale or one that connects to the postage meter to accurately calculate postage. A digital postage scale can cost hundreds of dollars, but vendors can add them onto a monthly lease for an extra $5-$10/month. These postage meters typically process only a few letters at a time and don't include extras like envelope sealers and stackers.

A base can increase the functionality of your postage meter. They often include feeders, sealers, and stackers that allow you to process large mailings much more quickly.Buying a high-volume postage meter base can be expensive, but most vendors will rent out a base as part of your monthly fees.
