My other products

My Other Products are defined by your organisation. Your Organisation Administrator will set up internal products that can be used when entering manifest data.

These products will have a name and a unit price. A 'UD-' (User Defined) precedes the product name, so you will be able to recognise 'My Other Products' products easily.

My cost centres

If your organisation allocates postage and/or other costs to departments/clients/jobs etc. then the Lodgement Manager 'Cost Centre' feature enables you to do this.

When in the 'create' screen of a manifest record, you can allocate manifest costs (whether New Zealand Post or My Other Product) to Cost Centres.

Your Organisation Administrator will set up Cost Centres that you are authorised to use.

When in the 'prepare' screen of a manifest record, look at the view breakdown button to see where you have allocated the manifest costs. The view breakdown screen also shows the unit price and total cost of the manifest record.

Note: if you are a mailhouse working on behalf of a customer you will see the card rate for each product, not the customer's contract rate.

Add frequently used 'My Cost Centres' to your favourites list.
