The Postal Service™ has had quite a bit of success offering discounts for certain mail piece designs. These incentive programs have encouraged mailers to use modern and innovative designs that allow users to interact with their mail in new ways.
After USPS® postponed the Full-Service mandate for earlier this year, many mailers were content to go back to their previous mail entry habits of paper postage statements and generic Intelligent Mail® barcodes for automation mailings. However, recent moves by USPS will encourage mailers to make the jump to electronic documentation (eDoc) now for presort rate and automation rate mailings, well before a new Full-Service requirement date is announced.
After more than two years of pilot testing, USPS® has rolled out e-Induction nationwide. This is the program that allows mailers to drop ship without 8125 forms. That’s right, no more printing and round-stamping 8125s!
