Can't Access United States Postal Service - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Try alternative urls such as cns.usps.com, usps.gov

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Is anyone having trouble seeing the details of a label in their active history? When I click on a particular label in the history list, nothing shows. I need to request a refund but it won't even show the details of the label or the option for a refund.

The USPS website for International Forms has been down since yesterday. I called at 10 a.m. and was told they have no time when it will resume. I can't be the only person having this problem.

Mike Beer said "If your on a MAC you can use 'Chrome' and you will be able to print labels." Two hours ago I could NOT print a label on chrome. My mac OS is up to date as well as my browsers, java, etc. I think what is happening is Clink-N-Ship doesn't work most of the time for most of the people, but occasionally some people have success. I have not been able to get Clink-N-Ship past the priority options. The only two priority options it gives me, in chrome, is "choose your own priority box" for $18** or window envelope, when I was trying to get to the regional rate boxes. I also couldn't get any priority options when I was trying to print out flat rate envelopes. In safari the priority options window is only a few pixels high, so you can't see any options at all. I've probably tried 50 times since Wednesday. I've been using Clink-N-Ship without a problem for over a year.

I usually don't have issues with the USPS site so this was quite a "surprise".
Thank you to whoever suggested the Ctrl F5 refresh. Could only get that page with everything down the left side but when I refreshed that page all was OK until I got that page again. Just keep on Ctrl F5 'ing until you are finish with your label.

Regional rates are back but the prices are wrong! I didn't notice this till after everything went through and now I am out $68.47, (YIKES!) for a Regional A box that should be $9.97. Also no history came up for any of my transactions but I did type in the numbers and it came up that way and I clicked on a refund so hopefully it did the refund correctly and I will get my $68.47 back in a few days. (shouldn't take that long to get a refund) Hopefully USPS will get it working

Logged on finally got to click n ship after refreshing as suggested above, but after selecting Priority Mail Flat rate option, my total came to $44.95!!! Not the usual $5.05. Tried this several times still came to that amount. Yesterday I couldn't even get to this page. What is happening with USPS.com???

I get all the label info entered but click-n-ship will not give me the priority options to finish the label. Tried two other browsers, rebooted. Here is an unrelated question. If other shipping programs (sendIT for mac) will let you paste an entire name/address in, why does USPS make us enter each address bit into each field, which takes a long time? Do people put the name/address block into their address book and then select it from there, or do you enter each bit into each field manually? USPS needs to hire competent IT people!

Went to print a shipping label and of course I run out of ink. Go and pick up a new printer cartridge, install it and try to get on my acitivity history to reprint the shipping label - that I've already PAID for - and of course the page won't load. Every other page I try on USPS loads, but not that one. This site has been a problem ever since they IMPROVED it!

USPS must have the worst of the worst IT people. This kind of thing happens several times a year. I ship 6-10 Priority Mail packages a day. I can't understand why they have to keep messing with the web site. Every time they do a so called upgrade something goes sour.

Since yesterday morning I cannot even get the right page to load for shipping labels on my PC, on my tablets I can access the info and my address book but become stopped at using A or B regional box choice, you also cannot check the box about to say you are not shipping illegal substances. I know they ran a Maintenance from early Tuesday morning and said it would be updated by 4-6 am..which is not the case. Go to Stamps.com if you are shipping Regional rate boxes..Nooo troubles there!

USPS site is glitching big time. Click and ship is not loading properly and is giving HTML page layouts instead of normal layouts. Have to scroll down and read through the links on the talley page and the final tracking page and try and remember how the site navigates to get to the end to print out labels. Good luck...

USPS.com is not working very well today. Charged me for labels that didn't print... rather good "runaround" trying to get into shipping history in order to print those labels. There was NO HISTORY and I do a lot of labels so now I'm really worried. Site on both Chrome and Firefox is just incredibly slow. Whatever they did last night broke something. Took me a very long time to get 8 labels done today. Not very productive.

Loads incorrectly (no stylesheet or HTML5, I assume?) in Chrome and Waterfox. Eventually loads in IE, but takes for-bleeding-ever, and I missed my window before the PO closes at 5.

Can we just roll back to pre-January 2014 USPS.com, please? These "upgratdes" have done nothing but cause problems. Every time they put one out, the system fails. Makes me wonder if anyone bothers to test them before they're applied or if they just cross their fingers and hope for the best. Hint: it's never the best.

My small business is now at a standstill. I have packages that need to go all over the US, Canada, Australia & Hong Kong and can't do anything. Unfortunately, I already charged my customers for the online shipping rate, and I'm not willing to cover the difference of paying at the post office, which is a lot for big packages. So... nobody gets anything, and I'll get a poor rating cuz of it. Arrggghhh!!!

After USPS was closed for several hours online to upgrade last night, you can not get Regional prices now when using Google Chrome or when using firefox you can't get it to get out of the loop of asking for a shipping date even though it has been put in. VERY Frustrating. VERY ANNOYING!!

Laurie-Once you have paid for the labels, try scrolling all the way down the page to the VERY bottom. It is in some funky code, but I have been able to print labels from there. The whole system is very slow and not correct but I could print.

Is it even worth complaining about anymore? Anytime I get on this website I only expect problems. If the site actually works, I'm surprised. It's ridiculous. TODAY'S problem is that it takes ages to load (to the point where the site logs me out for being inactive) and when it does load, it takes me to a very basic looking coded screen with the correct colors, but nothing logical (at least not to my mind). I've tried clicking some of the options, with no response. I thought they had the site down last night to WORK on it, not DESTROY it even more. GET IT WORKING AND THEN LEAVE IT ALONE! Quit trying to alter it. I'm tired of being an unpaid Beta tester. Maybe I should start expecting my check in the mail...

I have had to ship packages through USPS about 1-2 times per week, and 3 times of the last 10 I have not been able to print postage online. I guess that would be about a C- in terms of reliability.

I dislike the new Scanbars. I refuse to use them. They do not help me and caused me nothing but headaches. There is no information anywhere that I can find about them.

Created 6 labels a few hours ago (like Normal). I went in to create another label and it told me "We are unable to find any available service options for this label, please review your label and try again." Well, fine then. I tried again and it magically decided the address I entered was acceptable (I'm positive it was the exact same address I had already tried). Proceeded to my shipping cart to pay and print AND....ALL MY LABELS HAVE BEEN DELETED! What the heck is going on?!?! FIX IT! I am SO DONE with USPS and all of its problems. Personally, everyone working on the USPS website should be FIRED. They are utterly useless, as they prove time after time again.

I usually create several labels at a time. For the past month or so, the first label I create from my address book does not populate the State so I have to put it in manually. There's no warning that the State didn't populate on that first label so after 8 or 10 labels have been created, none of the labels would add to my cart and it was not clear why not. It took me the longest time to figure out what was going on...

I have been printing labels/shipping flat rate from the USPS website for years, and a month ago it quit putting items in my cart. I enter in all the info..."zero items in cart". It disappears. Two emails and one call to tech support have gotten zero response. Total pain to have to take all of my stuff physically into the post office to ship it.

Still can't pay - tried 6 different forms of payment (ALL VALID!) and still gives me "unable to process this form of payment". I'm sorry.. I'm not trying to pay in goats or Bitcoins! I am using a MASTERCARD and an AMERICAN EXPRESS aaaaand my PayPal. Since it does this only on my huge batch orders, I am starting to smell a conspiracy since I am now obligated to go to my local Post Office and lose the $10 discount I would have gotten by the Click N Ship online. BOO!!! Two thumbs down to this new USPS web site. You should fire everyone who worked on your "revamped" site. Click N Ship worked perfectly before their shenanigans.

Since yesterday, site cannot process Paypal or Credit Card payments. Tried multiple methods and cards. Good way to lose lots of business if they can't process payment.

paypal.com/shipnow is not working either because it relies on USPS system.

USPS Click & Ship worst service ever. NEVER use the Package or Mail intercept option. It is a RIP-OFF. They NEVER intercept any mail but they will charge you for it. When you request for a refund, they say, well, we didn't say we can always intercept any mail but sorry NO REFUND.

Tracking stopped on 4/26/14. My 2 day Priority did not arrive on the 28th. STILL no tracking since the 25th, still no package. ANYONE else having this issue? My PO says they see what I see!!! Give it more time!!!

It won't accept my payment on either of my computers, trying Chrome and Win8. I even created a new account thinking it was just my account and it won't work either. This is my lively hood here... sooo frustrating!

I use USPS for business purposes, so it is very frustrating when I'm trying to print a label, and the site times out. This seems to happen every few weeks. The layout and functionality seem to change randomly as well. What is going on with the IT at one of the largest businesses in the country? And you wonder why the USPS is having issues making money. Come on.

The USPS site will still not let us pay for labels as of 4/23/2014. They are saying it it technical issues. The checkout keeps declining our multiple cards we have on file. We've had this account work perfectly for 11 years. The new changes have been flawed from day 1. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

I really can't understand why a huge organization like The US Postal Service can't keep a website up and running for more than a few days at a time! When it works it is great!!!

None of the 3 letters I sent by certified mail are tracking. They were mailed from 2 different post offices. Is anyone else having this problem?

Still getting this message "We are sorry but we were unable to process your order. Please re-edit your labels and try again." Missed shipping 3 packages today. Tried several times. Got other errors that were bogus and corrected when resubmitted. Site is just flakey!!

Cleared Cache - still continue to get this error. We are sorry but we were unable to process your order. Please re-edit your labels and try again. Have re-edited each shipment 3 times. Please USPS, my little company can't afford this

The site won't let me process the payment! It's saying; "We are sorry but we were unable to process your order. Please re-edit your labels and try again." There's nothing wrong with the labels!!!

have a label in my cart but I keep getting an error message that my order can't be completed when clicking on enter billing info.

Tried to use paypal.com/shipnow but it doesn't give the different priority mail options, i use regional rate boxes and that's not an option... oh well.

USPS Down? Not able to process postage. It say re-edit labels and try again.

Edit: Just did my postage at Paypal/shipnow. Got it done there without a problem. USPS... you all suck!!!

As of 3:22 PST Print a Label with Postage and other functions are now functioning without the error.

Edit: My bad- You can create your labels now but cannot pay for them ERROR "We are sorry but we were unable to process your order. Please re-edit your labels and try again."

Katrin Sonnenberg · 15 April 2014 - 15:18

After painfully getting three labels in the cart - got the following message when tried to check out: We are sorry but we were unable to process your order. Please re-edit your labels and try again. So, even if the site is UP that doesn't mean it's functional.

Update: Set up an account on paypal and use paypal.com/shipnow.

Error when creating shipment or trying to pay for labels that were already in my cart. "We are unable to find any available service options for this label, please review your label and try again." Had to go into the post office and ship my express packages for an additional $30 and asked them if they new USPS online was not working and they did not. Busy day at the post offices people, tax day!

The website may be working, but it is not allowing me to print my labels. I have to go to the post office and pay another $6 in shipping.

I hate the USPS -- We are sorry but we were unable to process your order. Please re-edit your labels and try again.

I am also getting an error message about editing my shipping label. I use this website all the time to print shipping labels and have never had this happen. I hope they fix it soon.

We are sorry but we were unable to process your order. Please re-edit your labels and try again. This website is frustrating and has more problems then my last marriage.

Unable to find a shipping option for your label. Please re edit. This happens WAAAYYYYY too often. Been on hold with customer service for 45 minutes.

So every post office in my area put signs up that they are hiring and to go the usps.com to apply. However, every time you click on a job, nothing happens. This is so frustrating.
