E-2 What is MAC Gold?

MAC Gold Certification offers a new approach to manifesting. It evaluates the end–to–end ability of a manifest system (scales, printers, and software) to produce accurate postage and fees, as well as quality documentation. Classes of mail are limited to First–Class Mail (single piece) and Priority Mail. Developers who use MAC Gold are pre–certified to use Delivery Confirmation, Signature Confirmation, and Insured Mail (integrated barcode only) services once the appropriate forms are submitted, thereby providing quick, easy start–ups. A MAC Gold approved system needs no further approval as long as the system is installed and operated according to the developer’s instructions. MAC Gold developers are included in the MAC Certified Developer List.
