How to: Create a USPS SCAN form

Created:   |   Updated:

USPS SCAN forms are available for any ShippingEasy customers with Basic and above plans.  If you have one or more shipments for the day, you can add them to a USPS SCAN form.  

  1. Navigate to the USPS SCAN form page from either
    the READY TO PRINT page:
    the SHIPMENT HISTORY page:
  2. All of the shipments you have processed today will appear in the left hand table and are pre-checked, ready for you to create a SCAN form. Simply uncheck any items you do not want to appear on your SCAN form and then select the blue Create SCAN Form button.
    NOTE: Only labels with a ship date on or after the day that you're creating the USPS SCAN form will be eligible to be included on a USPS SCAN form. This means that any labels with a ship date prior to SCAN form creation will not be eligible for inclusion on a SCAN form.
  3. Once created, your form will appear in the right hand "SCAN Form History" box for printing.
    Clicking the Print or Reprint buttons will print the day's SCAN form as a PDF file, from your web browser.
  4. Below is an example of the printed SCAN form.
    NOTE: 'Other' listed under Type of Mail, is for First Class Domestic, Media Mail, and Parcel Select shipments.


  5. Once a SCAN form has been created, it will appear in the "SCAN Form History" box for the next 10 days. If you want to review the shipments that were in the generated SCAN form, simply select the Tracking # for more details.

    SCAN Form - where have you been all my life?!  More and more clerks at our local post offices are telling us they won't scan our labels because their supervisors have told them not to!   I don't think they can refuse to scan their own SCAN form - but I wouldn't be surprised if they try!
