USPS Adds Free Delivery Confirmation to 15 Countries

Until recently, the Electronic USPS Delivery Confirmation International service was only available to Canada. The Postal Service recently announced that it is expanding this service to an additional 15 countries.

The ability to track packages at a reasonable expense when shipping overseas is at the top of many online retailers' wish lists. Doing so means that companies can provide reliable delivery options, greatly improving their online reputations.

Beginning July 28, 2013, free Electronic Delivery Confirmation for First Class Package International Service will be available to the following countries:

  • Australia 
  • Belgium 
  • Brazil 
  • Croatia 
  • Denmark 
  • France
  • Germany
  • Great Britain 
  • Ireland 
  • Isreal 
  • Netherlands 
  • New Zealand 
  • Spain 
  • Sweden 
  • Switzerland

What does this mean for your online store? 

Your customers may not be aware of these changes - why not take advantage of this opportunity to showcase your customer service initiatives by updating your standard replies or auto-responders announcing the recent updates to your shipping policies.
