You pay PBS 27 cents to get the DC, then you pay 18 cents in additional postage.

Ok. I'm a little confused....Can you use the DC even if you mail it from the post office or do you have to use the printable postage??

You can print DC only and pay postage at the PO. You pay the .27 fee to PBS to be able to print the PBS DC. Then when you pay postage at the PO you pay an additional .18 (intead of the .75 for PO DC).

If you use it with PBS DC then all the fees and postage are paid for at that time. I think the total PBS fee is .43 with printable postage.

As an example, a less than 1 lb Media Mail package would be:

No DC, no PBS Postage: $2.23 at the PO

PBS DC, no PBS Postage: $.27 paid to PBS at printing of label + $2.41 at the PO

PBS poastage (DC is required): $2.84 (2.23+.18+.43) paid to PBS at printing of label and its all ready to go
