InformedDelivery.USPS.com - USPS Informed Delivery Service Online
USPS Informed Delivery is a free service provided by the USPS that allows customers to preview images of their incoming mail and packages. The service sends users an email notification containing images of the front of their mailpieces and package tracking information, allowing them to see what's arriving in their mailbox or at their doorstep.
How Does Informed Delivery Service Work?
To use the Informed Delivery service, you need to create an account on the USPS website. Once you've signed up, the USPS will start sending you email notifications containing images of the front of your mailpieces and package tracking information. The service works by using automated mail processing equipment to take pictures of the front of letter-sized mailpieces, including postcards and envelopes, as they are being sorted. These images are then sent to your email address or can be viewed on the USPS website or mobile app.
For packages, you will receive a notification when a package is shipped to you with tracking information, as well as an image of the package's shipping label. Once the package has been delivered, you will receive another notification with a final delivery image.
