2.7. If presented with a Rate Selection screen, choose the "Default" Rate Plan

Since myallocator can only control one Rate Plan, we always recommend that you select the "Default" or "Standard" Rate Plan on this screen.  The Default Rate is always the first (top) rate presented.

Once chosen, we will control Rates for this rate plan only - any other Rate Plans must be setup to be derived from the Defualt Rate.

More information about Rate Plans can be found here: Rateplan Support - Using Rate Plans to set multiple rates

Click here to learn more about the Base Rate Adjustment.  In most cases, this can be left blank.
