Best Manifesting is a manifest mailing system that allows a mailer to automate shipping and document postage and fees for all pieces in a mailing paid via permit imprint.
Each piece in a manifest mailing is labeled with a unique identification (ID) number. The manifest lists each piece by ID number and shows the amount of postage claimed for that piece. The pieces may be identical or non-identical in weight. More than one class of mail may be reported on the manifest. The mailer simply submits the manifest, a postage statement, and the mail to the designated drop off point at their local post office or a pick-up can be arranged. There is no postage shown on the mail piece itself.
Benefits of Manifesting:
- Automated documentation provides easily maintained mailing records. Many systems can be tied into order-taking software and inventory management software.
- Convenience of paying by permit imprint. There is no need to affix stamps or meter strips.
- May combine different classes of mail on the same manifest.
- May mail non-identical weight pieces of the same class together.
Best Manifesting offers the best of both technologies by allowing a Fillz user to utilize the API or an Import File. The API allows a mailer to process real time by scanning the barcode provided on the “pick ticket” and producing a mailing label through the Best Ship system. Best Ship will instantly mark the order as “Shipped” in Fillz transferring a tracking number if applied. The Best Ship rate shop system, along with the Fillz API, allows clients to efficiently process orders with different Ship Methods and numerous classes of mail, all in real time. The Fillz import file can provide a benefit to many mailers who choose to close processes at the end of each day or cannot rely on internet access. No manual exports are required. Best Ship can offer both technologies, along with our customized shipping solutions, to help you succeed in order fulfillment.
