❓I'm getting the error To be reprocessed: User TUWNNNNNN is not authorized for this service. What does it mean?

In this case, please contact your Swiss Post account manager and verify if the franking licence you applied is allowed for the Barcode Web Service (some franking licences are exclusively available for Webstamp - creating barcodes on carrier's Customer Portal).
