EDDM

Setup EDDM

Admin > Store Configuration > External Service Settings > Mailing List Services TAB > EDDM

EDDM (Every Door Direct Mail) is a service by USPS. It offers a mass mailing service offered in the USA for mass marketing services and promotions services. It is highly recommended by OnPrintShop to integrate the EDDM service in your store and enable the mass mailing facility for your end customers. With this integration, your end customer can perform both Printing and Mailing activity from your storefront only instead of going to different portals for each of the services separately.

Read below a systematic guide to integrate EDDM with your OnPrintShop website-
