IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR CONNECT+ USERS

Canada Post rates increase March 31, 2014.

**Canada Post Rates and Services change on March 31, 2014. Pitney Bowes recommends that you complete this rate change download immediately. Your meter will store the new rates and automatically make them effective on March 31.

Once the new rates take effect, the price for a domestic standard letter up to 30g will display as $0.75 on your meter. This reflects the 12-25% discount Canada Post is giving to business clients who meter their lettermail rather than using stamps ($1.00 for single, $0.85 each when purchases in booklet or coil).

Your Pitney Bowes DM Series TM or Connect+ TM mailing system will require a software download for the new Canada Post rates effective March 31, 2014. This important download will ensure that your mail is being posted accurately, and moves efficiently through processing at Canada Post depots.
