In case you missed it last month, we wanted to let you know that we launched a new System Status page, located at https://status.endicia.com/.

This page provides real-time, 24/7 information into the operational status of the Endicia software, online platform and Label Server API.

If you experience an interruption in the Endicia service, be sure to check this System Status page first. As soon as a service issue arises, we’ll post information about the issue along with other relevant details.

From this page, you get real-time visibility into the Endicia network, including:

  • System status: Confirm service availability for the Endicia website, software, and API services
  • Outages and incidents: Get detailed information and communication on any Endicia service outage
  • Maintenance: Find updates about Endicia server maintenance and upgrades

You can also subscribe to receive System Status updates via email, SMS text or an Atom/RSS feed. Please note that there is a double opt-in requirement and you must take action based on an email you’ll receive asking you to confirm your intent to sign up. If you do not complete this second step, you will not receive status updates.

Endicia software automatically does this work for you, but if you’re looking for a quick, visual way to easily identify the appropriate rates per zone and mail class, this map can help.
