Delivery Confirmation is available at a retail rate and an electronic rate. The retail rate can be purchased at your local Post Officeâ„¢ and uses the fluorescent green Delivery Confirmation label, PS Form 152. Delivery information is available online and by phone.
The electronic rate is for mailers who use online Shipping Labels or are capable of sending and receiving electronic files of their shipments. Delivery information is available online and, for certified shippers, by file transmission.
A point of interest.
The U.S. Postal Service will not scan your Prepaid Delivery Confirmation Label if dropped in a blue collection box, inside drop or picked up at your home or business.
Only if you present to a Retail Clerk at the front counter at your local Post Office for processing will it be scanned for acceptance.
Delivery Confirmation is only for delivery or attempted delivery purposes only. It is not a track and trace service.
It is an excellent and affordable service for those that require confirmation on your article.
