6-6 Receipt of eVS Shipments With No PS Form 8125

6-6.1 Overview of eVS

The eVS allows destination entry parcel mailers and consolidators to document and pay postage, including extra service fees, using electronic manifest files. The files are transmitted to a Postal Service database for electronic comparison against sampling data captured at origin and destination entry offices. The eVS program is designed to make it easy for parcel mailers and consolidators to take advantage of destination entry prices.

Participants in the eVS program benefit from reduced paperwork by replacing hardcopy manifests, postage statements, and PS Form 8125 with electronic documentation.
