Franking machines are one way for
small to medium sized businesses and the public sector to reduce the cost of
postage costs against the Royal Mails standard rates. Although cost savings are
achieved, there are many other additional meter charges to consider, as well as
long term contracts. Hybrid mail is an alternative solution which reduces
postage costs, has no hidden charges and is contract free!

come with a multi-year contract, so not only do you have the upfront meter
purchase to consider, but also a long-term contract. Unless you are certain how

costs include charges for not using the machine (!) called a dormant fee,
additional charges for not have sufficient funds and a charge for paying
electronically. Hybrid mail provides a simple subscription and pricing model,
what you see is what you get, and postage is paid per item as you send it. It’s
as simple as that.
The biggest franking machine cost
is the service contract fee which is normally more than the rental of the
machine. Many UK Mail customers have already switched from franking to hybrid mail
ditching their franking machines, in some cases mothballing the machines, as
the savings on hybrid mail more than cover the dormant meter.
