Manual transactions are used to enter transaction data that was not applied to the mailing system. For example, if mail was processed while Budget Manager was disabled, a manual transaction would allow the operator to enter the transaction information back into the system. Manual transactions are identified with an “M” on transaction reports.

To create a manual transaction without running mail through the meter:
  1. Press Menu.
  2. Press the down arrow button, then select Manual Transaction
  3. Select the desired options for the manual transaction:
  • Account (required): The account to which the manual transaction will be applied.
  • Class (optional): The mail class.
  • Actual Postage (required): The actual postage amount.
