  8. Full-Service Benefits – 90% Full-Service and Permit Fee Waiver • Waiver of presort fee is a Full-Service benefit • 90% of mailing volume must be Full-Service and if maintained, the presort fee will be waived. • The 90% threshold will be tracked cumulatively over a yearlong time period, rather than at the postage statement level. • If the permit continues to hold at least a 90% Full-Service ratio, the annual presort fee will continue to be waived • If the permit no longer holds at least a 90% Full-Service ratio, the annual presort fee will be required immediately

  9. Full-Service Waive Start and End Dates • PostalOne! will calculate the annual Full-Service waive start date • For First-Class:Start date is the transaction date of the first mailing where both the permit holder’s annual fee and the mailing agent’s annual fee expired and the Full-Service threshold of 90% is met. • For Non-First-Class:Fee-waive start date is the transaction date of the first mailing where the permit holder’s annual fee expired and the Full-Service threshold of 90% is met. • PostalOne! will calculate the annual Full-Service waive end date • The Full-Service fee-waive period will end when: • When the cumulative Full-Service percentage falls below 90% • After a full year of uninterrupted cumulative Full-Service percentage of over 90% • Does not mean the fee is due, simply means a new fee-waive period is ready to start • If the mailer never dips below 90%, the fee-waive period starts over on the fee anniversary date
