AccuTrace can track Outgoing mail and Incoming mail

Post by Eric » Mon Oct 27, 2014 10:21 am

AccuTrace can track both Outgoing mail and Incoming mail.

Outgoing mail are mail pieces mailed from the Mailer to the Recipient, while Incoming mail are mail pieces mailed from the Recipient to the Mailer. The Incoming mail are typically Business Reply or Courtesy Reply mail pieces where the Mail Recipient uses to mail back a check for payment or completes a survey.

To setup, the Mailer MUST contact AccuZIP Inc. before sending the initial mail piece. They need to give us the ZIP+4 code that will appear on the Business or Courtesy Reply mail piece. The ZIP+4 code is the same for 100% of the Business Reply and Courtesy Reply mail pieces.

To prepare the Outgoing Mail Piece:
- The Mailer will print the IM Barcode with a valid tracking Service Type, like 311 for Standard Mail

To prepare the Incoming Mail Piece (Business Reply or Courtesy Reply envelope):
- The Mailer will print the IM Barcode with using the same first 20 digits that are on the mail piece WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE SERVICE TYPE.
- Mail Piece Barcode Digits: 00311201109000239998+11-DIGIT_MAIL_PIECE_BARCODE
- Business Reply Mail Barcode Digits: 00052201109000239998+11-DIGIT_RETURN_ZIP+4_BARCODE (This is the same for 100% of the Business Reply Pieces)
- The Service Type will be one of the following

[REPLY MAIL]
050=Courtesy Reply Mail
051=Permit Reply Mail (PRM)
052=Business Reply Mail/QBRM
701=Permit Reply Mail (PRM)
703=Courtesy Reply Mail (CRM) and Meter Reply Mail (MRM) without Confirm
708=Business Reply Mail/QBRM

The billing for Business Reply mail is based on the Permit# info on the mailing statement, not the mailer ID.
