How to: Filter shipments when generating a USPS SCAN Form

Created:   |   Updated:

USPS SCAN Forms are a tool to help save you and your mail courier time when scanning your packages. Learn more.

Separate USPS SCAN Forms are required for each combination of "Ship Date" and "Origin Zip Code". The "Ship Date" corresponds with the date the courier is picking up the packages. The "Origin Zip Code" corresponds with the location where the packages are being shipped from. 

ShippingEasy will automatically generate a USPS SCAN Form for each combination of ship date and location. However, if you would like to have more control over which forms are generated, you can filter all eligible shipments down to the ones you're ready to add to a USPS SCAN Form.

To filter for shipments to be included on a USPS SCAN Form:

  1. Navigate to the USPS SCAN Form page from the READY TO PRINT page or SHIPMENT HISTORY page.
    1. From the blue navigation bar, expand the SHIPMENTS tab. Select READY TO PRINT.

  3. Select the filter options corresponding to the USPS SCAN Form you need to print.
    NOTE: a separate USPS SCAN Form is required for each combination of "Ship Date" (pickup date) and "Origin Zip Code" (ship from location). Multiple USPS SCAN Forms can be presented to your courier, however, having a single USPS SCAN Form for the day will simplify the process of accounting for all included shipments. Learn more.
