Learn the different FedEx delivery signature options that are available with the EasyPost API.
FedEx Signature Types
There are three FedEx signature types that are offered as a FedEx Delivery Confirmation service available with our API.
Indirect Signature - $2.25 per package
Indirect FedEx signatures can come from someone at the delivery address or someone at the neighboring address.
Indirect signatures also allow the recipient to sign a FedEx door tag at their address. The FedEx door tag authorizes the FedEx delivery driver to deliver the package without anyone present.
Direct Signature - $3.25 per package
Direct FedEx signatures must come from someone at the delivery address. If nobody is present at the time of delivery, the FedEx delivery driver will leave a notice and attempt to re-deliver the package later.
Adult Signature - $4.50 per package
Adult signatures must come from someone at least 21 years of age at the delivery address. The FedEx delivery driver confirms this through a government-issued photo ID, like a driver’s license or a passport. If no adult is present at the address and FedEx Delivery Confirmation requires a signature, they will attempt to re-deliver the package later.
