When money has been successfully added, you will receive a confirmation email from verifying the purchase. If you have received this email, refresh your browser, and then wait for the balance to update. This can take several minutes.

If you did not receive a confirmation email, consider trying to add money once more but keep in mind that all purchase requests may eventually process, so be careful not to add too much. Postage balance refunds are only granted when an account is closed.

If you still do not see the balance update, reach out to ShippingEasy's Customer Success team.

Notes about One Balance refunds

How is my One Balance refund processed?

If you have remaining funds in One Balance, it will be refunded to the credit card that was most recently used to purchase funds. If you have not purchased within three months, the balance refund may be mailed to you in the form of a check. Balance refunds for purchases made using direct debit from a checking account will be mailed as a check. It is important to verify that the mailing address on the account is correct prior to closing the account to avoid delays.

How are my pending refund requests handled?

If you have any pending refund requests for postage misprints, the account status changes to "Pending Close", and the account will wait until all requests have been processed before closing. After all, refunds have been processed, the account status will change to "Closed" and the unused postage balance will be refunded.
