Digital postage meters

More cost-effective and efficient than stocking prepaid products, a digital postage meter lets you weigh, frank, seal and brand your business mail.

We’ve contracted with Pitney Bowes to produce, install and maintain digital postage meters (DPM) which you can use to weigh mail and apply the correct postage.

Use of a DPM allows you to receive discounts on postage for your domestic parcels and all international mail items. DPMs automatically update price changes so your mail will always carry the correct postage. They also have a four digit PIN to prevent pilfering of postage included envelopes, prepaid tickets and stamps.

The cost of a DPM varies depending on which model you choose and which package applies. There are two DPM packages:

Package 1 - Free* DPM

Use of a DPM for four years or more, free of lease charges*, if:

  • your spend** with NZ Post is more than $100 (incl. GST) each month, and
  • you sign up as a NZ Post account customer for a term of four years or more.

* You will still need to pay for ink and software for the DPM, labels and any artwork or other incidentals.

** Spend is calculated on the types of mail items you can process through a DPM – domestic letters, international letters and non-tracked parcels.

Package 2 - Own DPM Payments

You pay for your own purchase or lease of a DPM and receive a 5% discount on domestic letters processed through your DPM.

DPM Conditions

Discounts on postage charged when selected from the DPM menu, are:

  Domestic Letters International Letters International Parcels
Package 1 - Free* DPM 0% 5% 10%

Package 2 - Own

5% 5%


  • The use of your DPM (whether leased or purchased) will be subject to the DPM supplier’s terms and conditions.
  • You must be a NZ Post corporate customer with a NZ Post Account.
  • Any product discounts you have under a customer contract with NZ Post will not apply for mail processed through the DPM.
  • Our DPM terms and conditions apply.


Once an order is confirmed, your DPM supplier aims to deliver and install your DPM within three to five working days. If you don’t have a current NZ Post Account, this may take slightly longer.
