Schedule a USPS Pickup At Your House or Business

Learn how to schedule a USPS pickup at your house or business.

When I'm talking about WooCommerce, Shopify, or some other eCommerce platform one of the most challenging aspects is fulfillment. Store owners always want to know how you can efficiently and affordably ship products.

USPS is one of cheaper options, and with both WooCommerce & Shopify you can get live shipping rates during checkout. And you can print out the shipping labels on your home printer. This automates a lot of the boring work.

The last step is scheduling USPS to come by to your house (or business) to pickup the packages. And the best news is that it's easy, free, & you don't even have to get out of your PJs.

Schedule USPS Pickup

The first step is to go to:

That will route you to one of their online tools to schedule the pickup.

Next enter your address.

USPS Fill in Address

Let them know if you have a dog. This is simply a courtesy. It doesn't affect your pickup.

USPS Do You Have a Dog?

Tell them where to look for packages. You can select where they'll be located and even leave a note. You could put them in your garage and tell them the keycode if you wanted. Or tell them to ring the front doorbell. Totally up to you.

USPS Where is the Shipment

You can choose what sort of pickup you want. If you schedule it during their regular mail delivery hours it's entirely free. Yup. $0.

If you want them to come at a specific time then you can schedule it for $22.

USPS Pickup Time

Schedule a date to pick up the packages.

USPS Schedule Date

And now count up & note which packages they'll be picking up.

List of Packages

And when you're done click “Schedule a Pickup” at the bottom of the page. Pretty easy right?

You can create an account and save a lot of this information for easier repeat pickups.

Pick Up Shipping & Packing Materials

If you don't have shipping materials like boxes, envelopes, tape, or bubble wrap I recommend going to the USPS office for the first shipment or two.

That way you know how to pack items and what boxes you'll need. Once you get that set you can pack your boxes at home, print out the labels, schedule the pickup and you're done. You don't even have to be there for the pickup if you don't want.

You could spend that time selling more products. Pretty awesome right?

There's a lot of things a new store owner should invest in. Standing in line at USPS is not one of them. Do it once or twice to get all of the packaging you need and then start scheduling pickups and getting more out of your day.

  5. This would be great if it worked! I have been trying to schedule an every day M-F pickup at our business for 5 months now! I have called Customer Service multiple times and talked to the local post office and still NO HELP! I fill out the exact form above and when I click on schedule the pick up….NOTHING! So very frustrating since we have to take it down every day. I have cleaned out my browsing data and everything else they have me try and still no luck. Technical Support from the USPS is supposed to have contacted me now for the last 4 months and nothing there either.
