Help your overseas customers to reply


Our International Business Response Service (IBRS) offers a convenient way for customers worldwide to reply to you with pre-paid cards and envelopes, at no cost to them.

IBRS can benefit your business by:

  • Extending your reach to new markets worldwide

  • Allowing customers to respond easily to you at no extra cost to them

  • Providing you with a cost-effective service because you only pay for the replies you receive

  • Letting you access as many countries as you like for a single license fee

How it works

  • Download an application form (PDF, 193.58KB) or pick one up from your local post office

  • Complete and return the form to us with a sample of your IBRS item which must meet our design specifications 

  • Pay the pro-rata licence fee as well as a deposit of 20% of your anticipated distribution abroad

  • When your application is accepted, we will issue a licence number for your IBRS card or envelope

What it costs

We charge an annual licence fee of €165.00 plus a deposit relating to anticipated volumes, subject to a minimum deposit of €82.50.
