Create a USPS SCAN Form

SCAN stands for Shipment Confirmation Acceptance Notice, which allows the USPS to accept all of your packages with one quick scan of a single bar code instead of scanning packages one at a time. A SCAN form is easy to prepare and a great time saver.

We suggest printing a SCAN form at the end of your working day after any shipping labels that won't be used have been refunded. Keep in mind that you cannot create a SCAN form for prior-day shipments. Best practice is to ensure you create your SCAN forms before 9pm local time.

To create a SCAN form:

  1. Go to the History tab.

  2. Click Create SCAN Form and choose All Eligible Packages.

  3. Click Print SCAN Form.


Your mail carrier or Post Office clerk will scan the SCAN form with a hand-held barcode reader and all of your packages will be instantly accepted by the USPS. The SCAN form will be returned to you for your records.
