Postal Service launches USPS.com Week

Share this content:

The U.S. Postal Service will play host this week to "USPS.com Week" at post offices across the country to let consumers know of the services available on USPS.com. The USPS's Web site offers nearly three dozen services and products to the 1 million customers who visit the site each day.

Two popular services at USPS.com are Click-N-Ship and free package pickup. Click-N-Ship brings the post office to a desktop at home or office for no additional fee. Users can print professional shipping labels and pay for postage using a major credit card. They can calculate and compare postage, purchase insurance up to $500 and request a free package pickup through Carrier Pickup.

With Carrier Pickup, customers can take advantage of the personal convenience and service of having packages picked up at their home, saving a trip to the post office.

Unlike other shipping companies, the Postal Service does not charge for the service. Free package pickup is available for packages being sent by Express Mail or Priority Mail, domestic or international. Packages must include postage and be ready for shipment before the letter carrier arrives. There is no limit to the number of packages that can be picked up.

The USPS also has a dedicated portal on its Web site for small business owners - USPS.com/smallbiz. The site offers pricing comparisons for shipping options, shipping tools that include supplies, printing desktop postage, finding the proper ZIP Code and requesting a free package pickup.

Other popular services and products available online let customers:

· Buy stamps, philatelic products and shipping supplies at the Postal Store (USPS.com/shop)

· Add insurance and delivery confirmation to packages (USPS.com/shipping)

· Create and send greeting cards, postcards and letters (USPS.com/cardstore)

· Find post office locations and hours (USPS.com/locator)

· Manage mail delivery while traveling or away on business (USPS.com/holdmail)
