Authorization to mail at the Nonprofit prices is a privilege, which was granted by law only to authorized organizations.
Nonprofit authorization is linked to a permit and mailers have a range of options for identifying the authorized nonprofit organization. One option is identifying the authorized nonprofit organization in the electronic documentation (eDoc), by providing a Permit Number previously linked to an active nonprofit authorization number in the eDoc.

It is required that a valid nonprofit authorization number is linked to the paying permit or the mail owner identifier used for nonprofit authorization identification in the eDoc.
