Delivery Type Indicator: Identify Addresses as Business or Residential to Improve Parcel Delivery Cost

UPS and FedEx charge a fee for residential delivery. Avoid this costly addition to your budget with the Delivery Type Indicator (DTI) component (also known as Residential Business Delivery Indicator or RBDI). It provides address delivery types so you get the best rate every time you ship.

What is "Index Before Address Check" in Address Check feature?

MAILERS+4 will processes your list in ZIP Code order instead of natural order. Processing by ZIP Code greatly increases the speed. The only disadvantage of processing in ZIP Code order is if you stop or cancel the Address Check process, it will have to re-start from the beginning.

How do I qualify for “In County” rates for my Periodicals mailings?

The first step is to format the FIPS field. This is a 5-character field that contains the Federal Information Processing Standard and is populated by MAILERS+4 during Address Check. The first 2 digits of this field are the state code, and the last 3 digits are the county code. Then select the “Use In-County” check box to receive the In-County discount for mail delivered within your county of mailing. The FIPS code of qualifying records must match your post office FIPS code.
