How to Generate a USPS Manifest

Easyship will generate a shipment manifest form for all your USPS shipments. The manifest form provides a single barcode that USPS can scan to process several packages simultaneously, rather than to scan each parcel.  

Generating a USPS Scan Form

Step 1: Navigate to Manage Shipments. Select the shipments you wish to manifest. 

Step 2: In the top left-hand corner, click Actions > Generate manifest

Step 3: A handover date will be pre-selected for the same day. However, you can hand it over on the following day without issue. Click the Manifest button.

Additional Notes

  • Manifests will be separated by pickup location. If you have several pickup addresses, you can generate manifests for each location. The manifest is created based on the sender's zip code.

  • For shipments to appear in your manifest, the manifest must be generated on the same day of shipment creation. The manifest can be generated for labels created that same day or with handover dates up to 5 business days in the future. For example, if you create several labels on July 1st with a handover date on July 5th, you must create the manifest on July 1st and choose July 5th as the handover date (see Step 3). You would not be able to generate the manifest for these labels after July 1st.

  • Manifests must be created before 11 pm EST.
