What is Estimated Delivery Date?

The Estimated Delivery date is the carrier's best estimate of when a shipment will arrive at its destination. USPS delivery date estimates can also be calculated on the USPS Service Commitments site.

Delivery Guarantees for USPS and UPS

USPS does not guarantee delivery by the Estimated Delivery date for any service, except Priority Mail Express. Learn more about Priority Mail Express.

If you shipped using UPS Next Day Air on a Friday to receive Saturday Delivery you must have selected the Saturday Delivery option for the order or the next true business day will be Monday and will still fall under the Service Guarantee set by UPS.

In ShippingEasy, Estimated Delivery dates are displayed for domestic USPS shipments that use these services:

  • Priority Mail

  • First Class

  • Parcel Select

  • Media Mail

Our calculation of the Estimated Delivery date assumes that you hand the shipment to your carrier and it is scanned into the system at your local Post Office before the end of the business day.

USPS Priority Mail Express

ShippingEasy does not calculate Estimated Delivery dates for USPS Priority Mail Express.

The Estimated Delivery date is displayed on the ORDERS and BATCHING pages in ShippingEasy.

How to: Find the Estimated Delivery date on ORDERS

On the ORDERS page, there is an optional Estimated Delivery date column. Learn more about customizing columns

Estimated delivery column on Orders page

The Estimated Delivery date displayed on the ORDERS page is calculated when the rate quote for the order is calculated. The calculation assumes the current date as the shipment date. If ShippingEasy reads an order from your store on a Monday and a Shipping Rule assigns a USPS domestic service, the Estimated Delivery calculation assumes the shipment will occur on Monday.

To refresh the Estimated Delivery calculation that is shown on the ORDERS page, switch to a different Shipping Preset. The Estimated Delivery date will be recalculated.

How to: Find the Estimated Delivery date on BATCHES

The Estimated Delivery date is displayed on the BATCHES page to the right of the Ship date.

The estimated delivery date is highlighted in the carrier services and packaging section.

The Estimated Delivery date is also displayed in the list of service options under the Carrier Service drop-down menu when the Carrier is set to USPS.

The selected service drop-down is expanded showing a list of available services with the expected delivery date. Priority Mail is highlighted.

Estimated Delivery Dates Not Displayed For Batches

Estimated Delivery dates do not display for batch shipments on the BATCHES page, because each shipment within the batch will have an Estimated Delivery date based on its distinct destination.
