Getting Started With PostalOne!

To begin, mailers should decide which electronic documentation "on ramp" meets their mailing needs: Postage Statement Wizard® (PSW), Mail.dat®, or Web Services.

Mailers can submit postage statements online with PSW. Using a secure Internet connection and simple, on- screen fields, PSW helps mailers complete postage statements online in the USPS PostalOne! account. Mail.dat and Web Services are file transfer protocols that allow mailers to transmit their mailing information from their production software directly to the USPS PostalOne! system. The choice between Mail.dat or Web Services is usually determined by the data output from the presort software being utilized by the mailer or his/her mail service provider.

Postage Statement Wizard may be a good fit if the mailer:

• Uses presorted or discounted mail.

• Handwrites most information on postage statements.

• Presorts manually or uses simple presort software.

• Has just a few pages of presort documentation.

• Usually mails locally.

Mail.dat or Web Services may be a better fit if the mailer:

• Uses presorted or discounted mail.

• Uses complex presort schemes.

• Uses sophisticated or customized presort software.

• Mails in large quantities to a broad range of delivery areas.

• Plans transportation for drop-ship mailings.

• Serves as a mailing agent or mail service provider for other business mailers.

Note: Technical considerations determine which is best for mailers. They should contact the PostalOne! Help Desk (800-522-9085) for more information.
