Crediting your Machine

What is Credifon?

Your franking machine needs to be loaded with credit before you can frank and send your post. As banks can’t send money straight to a franking machine, Neopost provides every customer with a free Credifon account to make it easy for you to manage your postage credit. For more information on how Credifon works, please click here to watch a short video. 

How do I check my account balance?

You can check your account balance online, by logging into your MyNeopost account.
