Normal presets are the default conditions on your meter that you define based on your commonly used values, such as postage rates and class. You can adjust the settings according to your needs, such as First Class, Priority Mail, Parcel Post.

Once you create normal presets, these options are saved and readily available on your meter. The Postal Class setting, in addition to identifying your mail type, helps automate the preset process for future rate updates and changes.
