How do I create a USPS SCAN form?

Learn How to create a USPS Scan Form easily. Select all shipments created that day and create a barcode for USPS to scan during package pickup.

What is a USPS SCAN Form?  A USPS SCAN form, or Shipment Confirmation Acceptance Notice, is a single form containing a master barcode. The master barcode links all the labels you have printed for packages you are shipping that day. 

Why should I create a USPS SCAN Form?   If you ship multiple packages per day, creating a USPS SCAN form will save you a ton of time at the end of the day during package pickup/dropoff. USPS requires each shipment barcode is scanned into the mailstream. With the master barcode on your SCAN form, all of your packages will be scanned at once, instead of having the carrier scan one by one.
