A. Centralized Account Processing System (CAPS)

CAPS is an electronic postage payment system that gives business mailers a centralized, convenient, and cost-effective way to fund items such as Permit Imprint, Express Mail Corporate Accounts, Address Element Correction, and more.

The system provides an electronic alternative to presenting checks and cash for postage and fees at multiple Post Offices.

Use this form to apply for a CAPS account. Customers can choose from two account types:

1. Centralized trust account — Customers use electronic funds transfer (EFT) to deposit funds in the CAPS bank prior to mailing.

The CAPS account is automatically reduced when local Post Offices process postage statements. 

If you are applying for a trust account, submit PS Form 6002, Accounts and Services to Be Paid Through CAPS, along with this form.

2. Centralized debit account — Customers designate a debit-enabled bank account for postage charges.

The bank account is debited for the total day’s postage on the next bank business day. If you are applying for a debit account, submit PS Form 6003, CAPS Electronic Funds Transfer Authorization Agreement, along with this form and PS Form 6002.

When you have completed the forms, print and mail the originals to: CAPS SERVICE CENTER, U.S. POSTAL SERVICE, 2700 CAMPUS DR, SAN MATEO CA 94497-9433.
