  • Why does USPS’s website say your address is invalid? WHY?

    If the USPS website tells you:

    • your US Global Mail address is invalid,
    • your US Global Mail address doesn’t exist, or 
    • you need to confirm that the establishment has been there for more than six months

    Here’s why: USPS website is extremely particular on how the address is entered in the form. 

    HOW TO GET IT RIGHT?

    When updating your address, please ensure there are no special characters in the form: no # signs, periods, or commas

  • What US Global Mail Addresses can and can’t be used for?

    This article will answer the most common questions about what a US Global Mail addresses can be used for. 

    Can we get packages sent to US Global Mail addresses?

    We provide physical, street addresses, so you can receive both mail and packages.

    You can then decide if you want to scan your letters, ship packages to other locations including overseas addresses, return items to the sender or shred unwanted letters. You can make these requests online from your Virtual Mailbox

     

    Do you receive packages and letters on Saturday and Sunday?

    No. Our business hours are Monday-Friday, 8am-6pm US Central Time (GMT-6). We cannot receive deliveries on weekends.

    Make sure to un-check Saturday and Sunday delivery in your order. Otherwise, your boxes will be left outside the building. We are not responsible for deliveries left outside our premises by shippers.

     

    Can I use US Global Mail address for my bank account or credit card?

    The answer is Yes and No!

    Yes, because most banks and credit card companies allow our address to be used on the account as your personal address.

    However, some banks have recently started asking for a personal address, which is not a CMRA (Commercial Mail Receiving Agency) address. In such cases, our clients provide an address of a friend or family member or their company as the personal address and their US Global Mail address as the shipping address. This ensures that no mail goes to the personal address as banks will use the shipping address to contact them, which is their US Global Mail address.

     

    Can I use US Global Mail address for a driver license?

    Yes. Many of our customers have used their US Global Mail addresses for their driver’s licenses.

     

    Can I use US Global Mail address for IRS?

    Yes. 

     

    Do I have to pay Texas state taxes when having my US Global mail address here?

    No. US laws don’t make you liable for taxes in any state without living there. Having an address in the state does not make you a resident of that state.

     

    Can US Global Mail addresses be used for Registered Agent Service?

    No. We currently don’t offer Registered Agent Service.

    Yes. You can always update your address and add addresses easily via your Virtual Mailbox.

  • What if I want my address to be in LA or NY or FL etc.?

    Your address with mail forwarding services is state-agnostic. Once you fill out a redirect form with USPS, it will forward your mail to the new address, irrespective of where it is in the US. That means the senders don’t need to know your address in Houston and can keep sending mail to your old address. You can receive your mail as if your address never changed.

    If you are moving overseas, the State of your address is in matters even less. You access your mail 24/7 via the Virtual Mailbox.

  • Why do you offer only 1 address?

    We own our warehouses so we have complete control over receiving, sorting and shipping your mail. This is important for the safety of your mail which can contain sensitive information.

    Having multiple addresses means we would contract with 3rd party stores or individuals to receive, handle and then ship your mail to our central location. This delays your access to mail by 2-3 business days and opens it to unnecessary risks. This practice is used by many competing providers but we prefer to not compromise on the security of our customers mail.

  • What addresses are available?

    You will get an actual Street Address, not a PO Box. It will be something like:

    Your Name or Company

    Your Name or Company
    1321 Upland Dr.
    NNNN *
    Houston, TX
    77043
    USA

    *NNNN can be box number, PMB (Personal Mail Box), Suite, Apartment or Office number.

    We have one centralized operation in Houston for speed and efficiency. We own and manage our own facilities, so you can rest assured of the safety of your mail.

  • Can I keep my current address and still use the service?

    Yes, you can. When you sign up with us, you will get a new US address for your mail. Simply redirect mail coming to your old address via the post office to your new address with US Global Mail.

    As long as you keep redirecting your mail with the USPS- you have to renew the redirection every 6 months- you can keep using your old address.
