Priority Mail is one of the services offered by the United States Postal Service or USPS that can be sent worldwide. However, not all packages and letters can be classified as under priority mail.
The criteria under this category are the following:
Flat Rate Envelope - important papers with size of 9 1/2" x 12 1/2"
Medium Flat Rate Box - office supplies and office equipment in bulk and others;
Sizes: a. 11" x 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" b. 11 7/8" x 3 3/8" x 13 5/8
Large Flat Rate Box - biggest priority box with a size of 12" x 12" x 5 1/2"
The good thing about this service is that it has a flat rate that is affordable for all its various packages. It ensured that the mail arrives within 3 days from delivery. However, you need to make sure that you do not exceed the upper limit of weight which is 70 pounds. Otherwise, you cannot use this service.
There are various ways in which you can track your priority mail. These ways come in three forms.
The first one is through online tracking by using the USPS website. You simply click the 'Track and confirm' option located at the top right corner of the website. In using this route, you will simply need your label/receipt number.
The second option is through Delivery Confirmation which gives you information about the date, time and ZIP code of delivery or attempted delivery of your package, by phone or online.
A Signature Confirmation, on the other hand, uses electronic mail or fax in confirming that your priority mail has been received by the recipient.
Certified Mail is another way of tracking your mail which provides you with a stamped receipt which bears the date on which the package was mailed. When the package is received by the recipient, another receipt is maintained by the post office.
These are just some of the options that you can track your priority mail. Indeed, USPS has devised ways to help you feel comfortable in entrusting your valuable items and documents with their institution.
