The article is devoted to Money Saving Tips for Franking Machine Users. So you’ve finally decided to save some money and invest in a franking machine.
With all the discounts you’re getting, all the money you’re saving from trips to the post office and not to mention the time saved and convenience you are now experiencing by switching to a franking machine, did you know that you can save even more money?
Here are a few more areas where you can cut cost.
Switch to low cost ink and label suppliers
A popular low cost ink and label supplier is Mailcoms.
Mailcoms is an approved supplier and maintainer of franking machines by Royal Mail.
They offer a lot of promos on their website that new and old customers can take advantage of.
If you’re new to a brand they have a try before you buy promo where you can get free samples of supplies for a brand such as Neopost.
You can get cartridges for a promotional price for as long as you promise to return the empty cartridge for recycling. On top of that, they have a 100% Quality Refund or Replacement Guarantee. The brands that they service are Mailcoms, Pitney Bowes, Neopost, FP and Frama which are all Royal Mail approved. If your franking machine is one of these brands then you might want to check out the supplies prices of Mailcoms for your machine.
If you have a brand new machine, you might want to ask your supplier if they offer starter kits. The Neopost IS-280 starter kit costs only £90 and already includes an ink cartridge, a letter opener, assorted envelops and franking labels.
Buy in bulk
If youknow you’ll be using a lot of supplies in the next few weeks, ask your supplier if they have bulk discounts. Ordering 20 boxes on one go may save you a few more pounds and can save you the hassle of running out of supplies in the middle of an important transaction.
Topping up your machine
Youdon’t havetogo to the post office to buy postage credits. Once you plug your franking machine into an analog phone line, all you need to do is press a few buttons and voila, your credit is refilled. Depending on your supplier, you can set a limit to your credit refill to maintain your budget. For most suppliers, you can refill your credits 24 hours a day. Some have specific hours for refilling. Before topping up, make sure you review your supplier’s rules. Watch out for extra charges.
Order free supplies
Ask your supplier if they offer free supplies such as envelopes, boxes, etc. Royal Mail also offers free supplies. All you need to do is visit their website and order. Not worrying about these small things saves you time and money.
If you want to save money, be sure you are well-informed about changes, upgrades and promos regarding your franking machine. Visit your supplier’s website frequently or join a mailing list so you don’t miss out on discounts, promos and freebies.
