Printing a USPS SCAN Form 5630 in SendPro Online or PitneyShip

USPS SCAN Form 5630 saves time because instead of scanning each individual shipping label, SCAN Form 5630 only needs to be scanned once to upload all of that day's shipping labels to the USPS systems.
Products affected: SendPro® Online, PitneyShip™

USPS Shipment Confirmation Acceptance Notice (SCAN) Form 5630 functions as a shipping manifest for the USPS. This is created after all of your shipping labels for the day have been printed. This saves time because instead of requiring USPS to scan each individual shipping label during pickup or dropoff, USPS only needs to scan SCAN Form 5630 once to upload all of that day's shipping labels to their systems. Using a SCAN form also helps ensure that all of your packages receive a USPS acceptance scan, improving visibility of your packages when you track them.
