1. Selecting a rate allows the Mailing System to calculate the postage amount when the mail piece weight is available, either from a weighing device or, for big parcels, entered manually (see How to Enter the Weight Manually).

    The system provides you several ways to select a rate:

    • Using a shortcut list in the rate selection screen
    • Using the rate wizard that asks you to choose all the rate parameters (class, destination, format, services...) in complete lists of options.
    • Using a list of the last 10 selected rates from the rate history
    On the home screen, press to select the default rate and refresh weight.
    1. To select a rate:

      1. Either:

        1. The Rate Selection screen is displayed.

      2. On that screen, you can:

        1. Press one of the rate buttons 1 to 9 (or type the number) to select the rate or display rate options.

          Press Rate history to select a recently selected rate or Rate wizard to build your rate with the wizard.

      3. Follow the instructions on screen and, once you have chosen the rate and services, press [OK] to validate your selection.

        1. Postage displayed on the screen is zero as long as the weight is not known (= zero).
    1. Using the Rate Wizard

      The Rate Wizard is an alternative method of selecting postage rates that will guide you through the rate selection process of all types of mail.

      • Selecting a Mail Class
        • All Rate Mail Classes loaded in the system are displayed in the list.
      • Selecting a Destination
        • For Domestic Mail Classes, you may be prompted to enter the destination postal or zone code. Use the [C] key to delete the existing postal or zone code (if any) and enter the new destination postal or zone code.
        • For International Mail Classes, use the arrow keys to highlight Code.
      • Selecting a Service
        • All the services available, depending on your previous choices, are displayed in a list (including 'No services').
        • After you select a service, any additional available service is displayed.
      • Wizard Summary Screen
        • The Summary Screen displays all the selections you have made.
        • If you place an item on the weighing platform, the corresponding postage is displayed.
        • Press [OK] to return to the home screen.
        Otherwise, you can press the back key to modify any of the settings made previously and obtain a new summary.
    1. Rate History allows you to select one of last 10 rates used on your mailing systems.
      This method provides a fast access to choose a rate.
