Mobile Barcode Promotion Requirement to Submit Sample Mailpiece

 

The Mobile Barcode Promotion runs July 1 through August 31, 2011, providing business mailers an upfront three percent discount on presort and automation mailings of First-Class Mail cards, letters, and flats and Standard Mail (including nonprofit) flats and cards.

 

In order to participate in the promotion, mailers must submit a hardcopy, nonaddressed sample of the mailpiece, showing the placement of the mobile barcode, when mailings are presented for acceptance and verification. Mailers should also retain a copy of the mailpiece.

 

Other key requirements include:

  • A two-dimensional mobile barcode readable by a mobile smartphone must be on or in each mailpiece in a mailing.
  • The barcode must be used for marketing, promotional or educational purposes and be relevant to the contents of the mailpiece.
  • Postage must be paid with a permit imprint and electronic documentation (eDoc) must be submitted to PostalOne! Commingled, combined and co-mail mailings, including MLOCR mailings, may qualify for the promotion if separate postage statements are submitted for each client taking the discount.
