Virtual PO Box Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Virtual PO Box?
A Virtual PO Box is a secure mailbox at a professional pack and ship store or at a coworking space in an office building that customers can rent if they wish to receive mail and packages away from their home or business.
Virtual PO boxes are like standard postal boxes but a Virtual PO Box comes with several advantages:
Save Time and Aggravation
Using a standard PO Box requires making frequent trips to the post office just to see if you have anything in your box. A virtual PO box lets you view your mail items from an app or online as soon as they arrive
Take Control of Your Mail
Besides immediate notification of deliveries, virtual PO boxes also give you more control over your mail. With a standard PO box, you must physically retrieve your mail before you can do anything with it. However, with a virtual PO box you can manage your mail items remotely with an app or online. Management options include opening and scanning, discarding and shredding your mail.
Forward Mail Items Anywhere
You can forward your postal mail and packages, and with the app, you can choose what you want forwarded and the forwarding destination.
