    • Electronic Return Receipt is a service that enabled the mailer to receive an electronic file (.PDF) with delivery tracking information such as date/time, delivery address, name of recipient, and recipient's signature. 
    • While the benefits between electronic and traditional return receipts are similar, an organization must evaluate the differences between the two methods to identify the best solution for their organization. The USPS has made the following statement regarding Electronic Return Receipt: "Return Receipt (electronic) is an official Postal Service document designed to be the equivalent to the hardcopy return receipt." All Certified Mail recipients regardless of whether a Return Receipt (hardcopy) is attached, must sign USPS form 3849 (a peach color form) in ink .  The signature and delivery information from this form is scanned into USPS systems and is used for the Electronic Return Receipt (if purchased).  If the Return Receipt (hardcopy) is attached, the customer is actually signing two forms (Hardcopy Return Receipt and form 3849)
