Ideal Franking Machines for Ebay Businesses

Franking machines offer the user the ability to pre pay for their post by establishing an electronic contact with the Royal Mail. Franking machines are linked to business accounts and the user will pay their postage costs in advance. This makes the process of sending letters and packages much easier than visiting the post office regularly.

Basic models are designed to cope with a moderate volume of letters and packages, and these are suitable for small businesses, or those just starting out, while larger business models can manage hundreds of letter every day to meet needs.

Ebay now offers label printing technology, which is a new innovation designed to increase productivity for Ebay users. This technology enables users to pay for their postage online and then simply print a label for their various parcels and packages. Pitney Bowes powers this operation and it shows just how far the franking machine has evolved in our society.

The Smart franking machine (named by Royal Mail) can help you claim VAT back on your postage. This franking machine automatically includes the letter types that are subject to VAT, rather than relying on you to enter the correct postage. The Smart machine will digitally relay this information to the franking machine supplier. This is highly useful for Special Delivery, 9.00am, Single Business Collections and Airsure, according to the Royal Mail.
