Why do I need two Endicia accounts?

Created:   |   Updated:

Our rate and label technology partner, Endicia, requires a separate account for expedited vs non-expedited postage. This two-account model allows us to enable the best available rates for the services that qualify for our extra discounts. 

First Class mail (non-expedited) is handled differently by USPS and the postage balance is deposited directly into a trust account with USPS. These requirements do not apply to expedited postage and thus a separate account is created to hold these funds. The expedited account also includes the extra discount on the eligible services. You will have access to full reporting on all postage deposits and then individual postage purchases applied against your balance by date.

Each Endicia account provides access to specific USPS services:

Endicia First Class Domestic:

all Domestic First Class, Media Mail, Parcel Select

Endicia Int'l and Expedited:

all Domestic and International Priority Mail and Express Priority Mail, International First Class

    well, oops, I didn't know that we had two Indicia accounts and put $250 in the account that we would use for First Class and Parcel Select = which we never use, and immediately had to add funds to the Expedited Indicia account to process our typical order, Priority Mail. Can funds be transferred between these two accounts?

    Hello Marilyn - I'm sorry to hear about the misunderstanding. Unfortunately, we're not able to transfer balances between your two Endicia accounts as the accounts are unique and separate. However, if you will not be using the services of the Endicia First Class account, you can close it for a full refund of the balance.

    We provide additional help with this in the following guide:

    I hope this helps! Please leave a comment if you have any additional questions. Thanks!
