Terminal upgrades: USPS self-service kiosks now allow customers to print prepaid and no-postage-necessary shipping labels using the Label Broker service.
Customers can bring their package and Label Broker ID, either as a printout or on a mobile device, to a self-service kiosk. They then can select “Scan QR code for Label” and scan the Label Broker ID when prompted.
The label will then be printed for the customer to affix to the package.
After adding the label, a customer can scan the package for acceptance and drop it off at the Post Office.

During the same period, USPS delivered 95.2 percent of Marketing Mail and 86.3 percent of Periodicals on time, the figures show.
