Delivery confirmation is verification that your shipment has arrived at its destination. Whether or not your shipment will have delivery confirmation depends on the carrier which provides final mile delivery. Chit Chats partners with national carriers which means final mile delivery is dependent upon the country which you are shipping to.
Delivery confirmation is not the same as signature confirmation. Signature confirmation requires the recipient to be physically present when the package arrives. Delivery confirmation is an acknowledgement by tracking update from the delivery person that the parcel has reached the destination.
Will my shipment have delivery confirmation?
In most cases shipments sent with fully tracked postage options will receive a delivery confirmation, however there may be some exceptions dependent on the carrier. Shipments left on a doorstep or in a mailbox will still typically receive a delivery confirmation.
The services which include delivery confirmation are:
- Chit Chats U.S. Tracked
- USPS First Class Package, Priority Mail, Media Mail, Parcel Select
- Chit Chats Canada Tracked
- USPS First Class Mail Package International, USPS Priority Mail International*
Most shipments addressed to Canada and the U.S. will receive delivery confirmation. However Chit Chats has partnered with USPS and Asendia to deliver your international shipments. Because of this, the availability of delivery confirmation may vary by country. Both USPS and Asendia provide lists of these countries. You can find USPS's list here.

Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Russian Federation, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland
In some countries, the carrier may contact you via email in order to confirm details required for delivery. You can find out how to track your Asendia shipments here.
