Q:We are trying to calculate the cost of switching over to IMB. What are the costs/fees associated with Basic and Full service? What additional costs are charged for OneCode ACS and Confirm?
A: The separate price structures for Basic and Full Service will not be announced until approximately February 2009. Costs and fees for OneCode ACS and Confirm can be obtained by visiting www.ribbs.usps.gov and going to the respective links listed under "RIBBS Links."
Q:Do you think or know if there is going to be a price differential between IMB Basic and DPBC during the interim 5/09 and 5/10 period?
A: At this time, there are no plans to have separate price structures for Basic Service and POSTNET barcode mailings. The separate pricing for Full Service is being planned as an incentive for mailers to take advantage of that option.
