April 2016 Postage Statements and Pricing Updates

Spring is here, and with it comes the April 2016 Postage Statements and pricing from the United States Postal Service. It is always a little tricky to try to figure out exactly when you should update your software. Update too soon or too late and you can run the risk of paying incorrect postage, having your mail rejected, or at the very least, held up by the acceptance clerks.  A good rule of thumb is to not install the update until you are ready for the new statements, which go into effect on April 10, 2016. In other words, if you are preparing a mailing for submission prior to April 10, do not update your software.

For those mailers who submit their documentation electronically, PostalOne! began accepting mailings with dates after April 10, 2016 as of March 27.

The new postage statements and rates are available as web update for the February 2016 BCC Mail Manager release. When you install this update, the new postage statements and rates will replace the current forms and rates available in your software today.

For additional information regarding the April 2016 Release, please refer to the Release Overview.
