Simply Postage is a small (5 1/2" x 6 1/2" x 5"), highly secure, metered postage dispenser that connects to an iMac or G3's USB port and prints postage on US Postal Service-approved self-adhesive labels. The software component allows users 24 hour access to Neopost's Postage-On-Call® system for downloading and storing up to $500 worth of postage. The detachable Simply Postage automatically calculates the amount of postage needed for each "stamp" according to the class of postage selected and the weight of the package or envelope as determined by the accompanying digital scale, saving customers money on over paid postage.
The Simply Postage membership kit consists of 10,000 pieces of clip art, a greeting card application, and the software necessary for operating the hardware. Upon software installation and registration, and acceptance of the service agreement, Neopost will mail the Simply Postage hardware components to the customer. Neopost will also process, on the customer's behalf, the documentation necessary for obtaining the required US Postal Service metering license.
