MailStream Plus Why does the Manifest Key line postage rate not match USPS postage rate

Product Feature: USPS / Postal
Platforms: ALL





 
The POSTMK parameter will post the manifest key line along with the actual piece postage minus the discounts awarded by the  USPS on the output file. The USPS Statement contains the piece postage information reflected in the Manifest key line in two separate locations on the statement.

Example of Manifest Key line including piece postage:
 
0.375000000001AV     0.37501

USPS Statement piece postage information:
LETTERS               PRICE     NUMBER OF           SUBTOTAL
                                                PIECES                   POSTAGE
