WHAT'S NEW in Detail

Supports the new January 2021 Rate Case, which starts on January 24, 2021

Postal Explorer - January 2021 Price Change

Support 2021 USPS Promotions

2021 Mailing Promotions Calendar and Description of Programs

New 2021 Statements are available.

If the Postage Statement Mailing Date is set to 1/24/2021 or after, the new 2021 version of USPS statements will be generated.

Added option to suppress OCI from exporting in a non-copal submission.

Mailers receiving Mail.dat files with the OCI included, when the job is not copal can prevent the PostalOne! error "Primary key of the oci file cannot be updated". When this option is set, only the copalletized job will include the OCI.

Go to File > Program Settings > Program Setup > PostalOne! tab and select (check) Suppress OCI on non-copal submissions.

Enhanced Open and Distribute Postage Detail and Account Activity Reports to avoid accidentally leaving out jobs..

If a user has a job specific filter set in the PMOD Labels/Shipments Browse screen, the Open and Distribute Postage Detail reports or the Account Activity report can still be run for all jobs. Formerly, if a user filtered by a job or group of jobs, when the reports were run it only would include those jobs.

For example, there were two jobs run on 11/16/20 and the PMOD Labels/Shipments Browse screen is filtered by Job Number and only one of the two jobs is showing. Now, when one of the three reports is run and the Job Number and Job Name fields are left blank, then both jobs will appear on the report.

Added support for Pitney Bowes API for purchasing USPS labels.

Pitney Bowes (PB) has worked with us to offer their customers the ability to pay for USPS packages through their PB Merchant Portal.

NOTE: For PB customers pushing funds into their ledger account, as soon as a production label is printed, on the first shipment you will get an error indicating you have no funds, even though you do. However, for the next shipment the ledger will have funds and then you will be ready to go. If you have any issues, please contact PB.

Integrated Pitney Bowes Pickup APIs that allow Enterprise Shipper users to schedule package pickups from commercial and residential locations and, when needed, to cancel scheduled pickups.

Scheduling package pickups and canceling pickups is all done through Enterprise Shipper, no need to access Pitney Bowes Merchant Portal.

Package information can quickly be filtered and exported using today's date in the Export Wizard.

In the second screen of the Export Wizard (shown below), when Shipping Date is dragged to the Filtered Values pane , the Enter the field value dialog will appear, check Use Today's Date, then click OK. Click Next to continue through the setup of fields to include in the report, click Next, and then click Save Template As, before clicking Export.
