Electronic Return Receipt saves $1.20 by replacing Certified Mail green card

Jul 11, 2008

Certified Mail™ was introduced by the Post Office Department in 1955 and has since become the universally recognized standard for documented proof of delivery. Today, Click2Mail has made sending Certified Mail™ through the U.S. Mail fully electronic, from uploading your letter to downloading the signed receipt, you’ll never have to touch paper, envelopes or green cards ever again. Plus, the new Electronic Return Receipt option saves you $1.20 compared to the traditional green card return receipt.

Certified Mail™ is an essential business tool that legally documents the fact that you sent someone a letter or notice on a certain date and documents that they received it on a specific date. Optional Return Receipt service provides you with a proof of delivery record for use in legal filings or follow-up correspondence. Traditionally, the Return Receipt has been a green postcard that is returned to you with the addressee’s signature. Green card receipts are still available on Click2Mail, but we highly recommend the new Electronic Return Receipt that provides an official USPS proof of delivery with an image of the recipient’s signature via email. It saves paper of course but it also saves you money – the electronic receipt is $1.20 less than the green card variety.

The Electronic Return Receipt is available on all of Click2Mail’s Certified Mail products, including letters, flats and self-mailers. With an all-inclusive cost of less than $5 (includes postage, fees and production), Click2Mail’s Certified Mail self-mailer with Electronic Return Receipt is the perfect low-cost legal notification tool. It’s ideal for simple one-page notices or demand letters for example. If you’ve got more pages or multiple documents to send, try our Certified Mail™ letter or flat and add Electronic Return Receipt for only $1.00 extra.

Next time you get ready to send an important letter or email, remember that and USPS have all the tools you need to get an official proof of delivery easily and economically.
