USPS Tracking Number - How to Track a Package
Track delivery of your USPS shipments
Stamps.com makes it easy to track packages and share USPS tracking numbers with your customers. Once you print a shipping label, you can choose to email the tracking link information to your customers from within Stamps.com.
Providing your customers with a USPS tracking number keeps them in the loop about the delivery status of their orders and at the same time, you demonstrate a high level of customer service by making their package details easily available.
