- I am new to my postage meter. How can I tell if it auto-updates the postage rates?
If you have a new iX Series Meter, it will automatically update the new postage rates. Just log off & log in!
If you have another Quadient postage meter, you can update the rate by making a “Generic Call” from the machine to the server. Visit our Knowledge base to learn more.

Presorting is when you group your mail pieces by zip code before you send them in order to lower postage costs. Your postage costs are lowered because you’re helping out the Postal Service save money on their postage processing and delivery. Read our blog post about presorting mail.

Dimensional (DIM) weight pricing! It is used by the major shipping carriers, including the USPS®, to help them manage the logistics of moving shipments across the country.
