Schedule or Cancel a Postcard

Schedule a postcard and we'll send it to the printer on the date that you choose. If necessary, you can cancel your postcard at any time before the scheduled date.

In this article, you'll learn how to schedule or cancel a postcard.

Before You Start

Here are some things to know before you begin this process.

  • Make sure you’re familiar with how postcards work in Mailchimp, including pricing and delivery estimates. To learn the basics, check out About Postcards.
  • This scheduling feature is only available for One-Time Send Postcards.
  • After you schedule a postcard, it can’t be edited or rescheduled. Cancel and replicate the postcard to update your audience, content, or schedule.
  • Your credit card will be charged when you confirm the schedule. If you cancel a scheduled postcard, you’ll be refunded the full cost to your original payment method.
  • Because standard postcard campaigns are sent to the printer within 24 hours, only scheduled one-time-send postcards can be canceled. If you're working with a recurring or abandoned cart postcard, you can pause it instead.

Schedule a Postcard

Scheduling allows you to choose the date that your postcard order will be sent to the printer. We estimate your postcards will be delivered 5-9 days after they’re printed, depending on where your recipients are located.

To schedule a one-time send postcard, follow these steps.

  1. After you're done with your postcard and it’s ready to go, click Schedule.
