The Postal Service is expanding Informed Delivery, an optional, free feature that provides eligible residential consumers with a digital preview of their incoming mail.
Through Informed Delivery, users receive images of the outside of their household’s letter-sized mailpieces before they arrive in their physical mailboxes. Users can receive these images via email or by accessing their online dashboard at informeddelivery.usps.com.
USPS has been testing Informed Delivery in select areas. By late April, the feature is slated to be available nationwide.
“Informed Delivery makes it easy and convenient to know what’s arriving in your mailbox each day,” said Product Innovation VP Gary Reblin. “We’re eager to share this new feature with consumers across the United States.”
The Postal Service is rolling out Informed Delivery by ZIP Code, beginning with major metropolitan areas.
Employees, who are also invited to sign up for Informed Delivery, will be notified when the feature becomes available in their area.
They also can check the feature’s availability by using the ZIP Code lookup feature at informeddelivery.usps.com, which has sign-up instructions and a list of FAQs.
The Informed Delivery pages on Blue and LiteBlue have additional information.
