Every Door Direct Mail for Retail – Every Door Direct for Restaurant
As a local business, you know the neighborhoods where your customers are.
Every Door Direct Mail – Retail® service from USPS® is an efficient and affordable way to reach every customer in your neighborhood.
Our online tool helps you locate your target neighborhoods and shows you how many customers you can reach.
To get started…
Step 1: Log in or Register
If you already use Every Door Direct Mail and you have a USPS business account, simply enter your user ID and Password.
If you are a first-time user, you’ll be prompted to create a new USPS.com® or Business Gateway account to get started.
Step 2: Define Who You Want to Reach
Our online tool helps you choose your targeted mailing routes by address, city, state, ZIP Code™, or up to a 5-mile radius around your business. You can even use street names or an intersection as your target area.
Next, you will be prompted to generate and print out the appropriate documentation and facing slips to take with your mailing to the Post Office™.
The tool identifies the number of active residential and business addresses in your target area(s) to estimate postage costs based upon print quantities.
You’ll have an opportunity to pay online with a credit card or you can always pay in person at your local Post Office with cash, check, credit/debit card or meter strip.
If you need assistance with the tool, our Every Door Direct Mail User Guide (listed on this page) will walk you through the process.
Step 3: Create Your Mailpieces
Once you’ve identified where your mailing is going, you can contact a local printer or marketing service provider to help you create your mailpieces. Be sure to check the approved specifications for Every Door Direct Mail, including sizes, address formats, and the approved Every Door Direct Mail – Retail Indicia (required on each mail piece).

If you did not make your payment online, you will need to pay at the Post Office with cash, credit/debit card, meter strip, or check.
