Accounts overview in Cost Accounting

Products affected: Cost Accounting

Cost Accounting helps you keep track of where you’re spending your money on postage by allowing you to assign a trackable cost category to some or all of your mailings and shipping labels.

The standard accounting package allows you to create up to 25 accounts and is available on all mailing and shipping systems. You can purchase additional accounts, allowing you to create up to 100, 500 or 3000 accounts.

When Cost Accounts are enabled, you’ll see a list of them in the mailing or shipping label workflow. Select a Cost Account to associate it with the mailing or shipping cost.

Accounts can be grouped on multiple levels for more detailed reporting.

  • Accounts are the highest level.
  • Sub accounts can be grouped under accounts.
  • Sub sub accounts can be grouped under sub accounts.

You can create and maintain your accounts on the Accounts screen, which is the default landing page when you log into Cost Accounting.
