Why USPS SCAN form?

USPS SCAN (Shipment Confirmation Acceptance Notice, PS5630) form is an one-page form containing a barcode and numbers of items you're shipping on that day. Provide the SCAN form when USPS postmen pick up packages from you, and you get the SCAN form back for your records.

  3. Update tracking results - Show Shipment Accepted at the tracking results. 

Important Notes

  1. Ship date of Today -  Only accept shipping labels with ship date of today (no past or future days)
  2. Cut-off time (8 PM Pacific Time) - Generate USPS labels AND print all SCAN forms before 8 PM.
