No. There are no hidden fees added to the price we quote you. Rates are locked in for the duration of the contract. Quadient just sends an invoice. No extra charges, no money up front. And, with our neoFunds® service, you get a $700 interest-free line of credit.

 

Ink cartridges

The ink cartridge for the Quadient IS-280 iMeter™ is over twice the capacity of that found in a comparable Pitney Bowes model postage meter. It will allow you to print up to 1900 stamps (indicia) before needing to be replaced.

The price of a replacement ink cartridge is $106.00. However, with the Quadient IS-280, you get the first ink cartridge free. What’s more, our ink costs 20% less per impression than the comparable Pitney Bowes model and is over twice the capacity.

 

Contracts & cancellations

Yes. Additional contract terms are available. However, the monthly rates and special offers will vary. Please contact a Quadient representative toll-free at 877.888.0677.

Occasionally we run promotions offering additional free months. In these cases, your contract term will still be 36 months. However, you will enjoy the convenience of the Quadient postage meter free of charge for the free months prior to the start of your 36-month contract period. So in the example of a 3 free months offer, you would have your meter for a total of 39 months, while only paying for 36 months!

You get the convenience of being price-protected with a low rate for the full contract term. You also get a free start-up kit containing a full capacity, long-life ink cartridge and meter labels for sending oversized letters and packages (a $100 value). Of course, Quadient gives you expert tech support and responsive customer service when you need it.
