CAPS Migration to EPS - MIGRATE TODAY!!
Centralized Account Processing System (CAPS) will retire October 2021. All customers with CAPS accounts need to migrate to Enterprise Payment System (EPS) as soon as possible to prevent losing the ability to mail within the Postal Service.
If you have Parcel Return Service (PRS) or are waiting for EPS enhancements to be implemented on August 15th, you can still create an EPS in 6 easy steps.
Steps to self-migrate to EPS can be found at https://postalpro.usps.com/EPS/MigrationFactSheet
Take steps to migrate today! Please do not wait for the deadline. If customers have not migrated to EPS by August 29th, the Postal Service will inactivate all permits associated to the CAPS accounts. Customers will lose the ability to mail within the Postal Service.
Customers with inactivated permits must contact the Mailing and Shipping Solutions Center (MSSC) and request to reactivate the permit and provide a plan to migrate to EPS before September 12th. After that date customers will be required to have an EPS account before any permits will be re-activated.
Eligible Products and Permits currently supported for an immediate migration to EPS:
Parcel Return Service (PRS) will be supported in EPS on August 15th, 2021.
* USPS Returns, PC Postage/Endicia, DFAS/SAM, and iCAPS will require USPS assistance to migrate to EPS. Please reach out to the MSSC about the migration of these products immediately.
If you currently have an Express Mail Corporate Accounts (EMCA) utilizing CAPS then you will need to migrate to National Customer Management System (NCMS) payment method to fund your account. Please reach out to the MSSC about the migration. (https://postalpro.usps.com/sfs).
