USPS Seeks No-Fee Trial for Delivery Confirmation

Share this content:
To offer customers a holiday mail-early incentive, the U.S. Postal Service is seeking authority to conduct an experimental no-fee trial period for its delivery confirmation service for Priority Mail.


If approved by the Postal Rate Commission, the trial would run Dec. 1-16.


Delivery confirmation for Priority Mail lets customers follow the status of their mail, providing the sender with delivery information, including date and time of delivery, forwarding or return status.


"By mailing as early as possible in the season, customers can take advantage of this unique offer and also help the postal service to better manage the large parcel volumes at this extremely busy time of the year," said Anita J. Bizzotto, USPS chief marketing officer.


The proposed limited-time offer would waive the 40-cent fee for manual delivery confirmation service that is paid in addition to Priority Mail postage. If approved, it would give many customers their first experience with the value-added service.
