Set up a Postmen Carrier Account

You can easily create a Postmen USPS carrier account and enjoy discounted shipping rates. This USPS account is provided by our partner Maersk, one of the largest USPS resellers.

Postmen USPS auto top-up terminology

Balance threshold: it defines the balance amount that triggers auto top-up. If the value falls below the specified amount, your account will be auto-recharged. Default value - $10.00.
Recharge amount: it defines the top-up amount with which your account is recharged if the balance is below the balance threshold. Default value - $20.00.

An initial charge occurs when you generate the first label.
