Some USPS products provide Tracking, while others provide only Delivery Confirmation™. It is important to understand the difference between “tracking” and “delivery confirmation”.
- First Class and Priority Mail – If you selected our standard shipping service via USPS First Class mail or upgraded to USPS Priority Mail, your package was shipped with Delivery Confirmation™. This means that when you check your order status you should see, at a minimum, when your order was delivered or when a delivery attempt occurred. USPS may also provide users with additional scan on items such as “processed”, “arrival at unit”, or “out for delivery.” However, the price of First Class and Priority Mail does not include end-to-end visibility.
- Express Mail® – This product include tracking that provides end-to-end visibility. This means that when you check your order status you should see, at a minimum, when your order was accepted and when it was delivered or a delivery attempt occurred. Additionally, you will likely see several additional scans as the item moves through the mail stream, such as “processed’ or “arrival at unit”.
