Mail Goes Digital with Informed Delivery

Press Release, United State Postal Service

Bridging the Gap Between Physical Mail and Email

BALTIMORE — Whether it is a card from Grandma, a bill, or a special surprise package, the U.S. Postal Service has a feature that allows you to see what is coming to your mailbox — anytime, anywhere — even while traveling. Informed Delivery is on the cutting edge of communication trends by helping people manage their mail and make the most of it. So before you head over the river or through the woods for holiday time this year, be sure to sign up and see for yourself. 

Participating users can digitally preview their mail through email notification, online dashboard or mobile app. Users also have the ability to interact with digital content, such as special offers and related links, directly from Informed Delivery notifications.

Signing up is easy. Simply go to informeddelivery.usps.com and follow the prompts for verification. This process provides security measures to keep your mail and physical address private.

And there’s more…

Starting early 2019, the Postal Service expects to begin offering an additional Informed Delivery option that will allow customers to sign for deliveries for some packages with an electronic signature. This enhancement will add convenience for customers who aren’t always home to sign for their deliveries.

Best of all, Informed Delivery is free, with no cost to sign up and no additional charges for any of the added enhancements of this valuable tool. More than 13 million users already enjoy the benefits and rewards this feature every day.

All postage stamps are available for purchase at Post Offices locations, online at usps.com and by toll-free phone order at 1-800 STAMP-24.

The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
