The Postal Service is adding QR codes to all blue standard and Priority Mail Express collection box labels to provide customers with information on nearby Post Offices.
To use this new feature, customers can use the camera on a mobile smart device, or the QR code reader available on the USPS Mobile application, Informed Delivery application, or another QR code scanning application.
When the customer scans the QR code, he or she will be taken directly to “Find a Post Office,” which will display 10 nearby Post Offices in order of proximity to the collection box. The information that will be presented to the customer includes:
- Post Office addresses
- Hours of operations
- Distance and directions to the Post Office selected
The QR code feature is part of the Postal Service’s larger efforts to make mail more convenient for consumers and to satisfy the needs of merchants who want efficient, economical shipping services.
