What is Informed Delivery?
Informed Delivery USPS Informed Delivery is a free notification service that you can offer to allow consumers to view letter format mail digitally. Users can also manage packages that they expect soon.
This service makes it easier for consumers to view the content sent to the mailbox anytime, anywhere. They can even view this information while traveling. You can view this information on your computer, tablet or smartphone. The United States Postal Service created a digital image of the front of the mail passing through automated equipment to automate the sorting and delivery of the mail. The USPS then uses these images to send digital notifications to consumers in advance, well in advance of mail delivery.
This service is designed to ensure that everyone can see the mail and parcel delivery every day, benefiting the whole family. Using this service, users can even pre-plan and perform certain actions before the mail reaches their mailbox. This also provides mailers with the ability to attract users through coordinated direct mail and digital marketing activities.
Therefore, informed delivery allows users to:
Digital preview of their mail in letter format: Informed Delivery offers consumers a digital preview of incoming mail that is about to arrive at their home. Customers can view the grayscale image of the appearance. They can also see the address side of letter-sized incoming mail, but not the internal content. Consumers can do this via email or online dashboard. These images can be used for letter-sized mail that is automatically processed by USPS.
Manage Packages: You can also get USPS tracking updates for all packages received. You can also provide some delivery instructions, manage notifications, and schedule a new delivery.
How does informed delivery work?
Now we know that Informed Delivery enables consumers to connect with the mail and packages they receive in a simple online location. Also let us tell you that the image of the post can also be viewed on my USPS dashboard by logging in to the informed delivery.usps .com.
It is also important to note that the image of large emails such as catalogs or magazines is only accessible when the mailer is running a synchronized digital marketing campaign. The dashboard shows email images for up to 7 days and package information for up to 15 days.
Most domestic USPS packages associated with the address listed in the USPS account are available on the Informed Delivery dashboard. For items tracked by USPS, consumers can view package delivery status, provide delivery instructions, and also manage their notifications and schedule a new delivery from the USPS dashboard. You can also get tracking updates of incoming packages via a separate email or text notification. Users can also choose to receive email or SMS notifications and track status updates of packages received.

Frequently asked questions about informed delivery:
Q: I live in a zip code that offers Informed Delivery services, but my address is still not eligible for Informed Delivery. why is it so?
Answer: To provide the image of the post to the correct user, each multi-unit building on each carrier’s route is identified and coded at the unit level. Although most addresses are encoded at this layer, in high-density areas the encoding process is still underway. If you live in a multi-unit building and are signed in to your USPS account, but registration shows that your address does not meet the eligibility requirements, we will not be able to provide you with this service until the encryption is complete.
