Physical addresses can receive packages and mail from all carriers and not just the USPS. When you have a PO Box, you can only receive mail from the USPS and therefore having to have any package from UPS, FedEx etc, sent to a separate address. With a physical address, all your mail ends up in one place.
PO Boxes are not just limiting with the carriers that you can receive mail & packages from; they are also very costly. Physical addresses on the other hand, come with a virtual mailbox. That means that postal mail is stored in the cloud, making for less physical space and real estate costs. Those savings are passed down to you, as a customer.
Whenever a package or postal mail comes in your name, we will scan it and upload an image within your virtual mailbox. With every mail item that arrives for you, you will get an e-mail notification. You no longer have to visit the Post Office; you can view your mail online from your desktop or mobile device.
Using a physical address, you can register a business with the secretary of your state. PO Boxes would not give you that ability. All mail documents concerning your business (legal, IRS etc) can now all be received at your physical address. Request a mail scan or request we have it shipped to you.

A Physical Address is a real street address, where you can receive mail and packages. Physical addresses can be used for business registration, in addition to receiving your mail. There are certain perks that come with physical addresses (as opposed to PO Boxes,) in that you can receive packages from all shipping carriers and not just the USPS.
Physical addresses come with what are known as virtual mailboxes (or smart mailboxes.) For any item that arrives for you at your physical address location, you will get an e-mail notification. From there, you can access scanned images of your mail or packages. If you need an envelope opened to scan the interior contents of it, you can do so. Need a package shipped to another address? No problem! You can even complete bank check deposits from your virtual mailbox account, and leverage other features like mail forwarding or free shredding.
Physical addresses are half the price of a PO Box. Because all the mail that you receive is stored in the cloud, that means that there is less physical space required, making your virtual mailbox a lot cheaper. Depending on the plan you select (personal or business,) pricing ranges from $9.95 to $24.95/mo.
Yes. Business owners very frequently opt into registering their business by using a physical address (as opposed to say, office space,) in order to save money. Physical addresses come with all the perks of an office, with a much cheaper price tag. You can receive important business documents (bills, checks, IRS notices etc,) as well and access all these digitally from within your virtual mailbox account.
PO Boxes normally do not come with a physical address and therefore cannot be used for business registration. The USPS has a Premium PO Box Service however, that will give you the additional physical address capability. These would come at a more premium price and therefore, registering a Physical Address with a Virtual PO Box instead, is a more preferred alternative.
Any street address is essentially a physical address. And all virtual addresses, because they are located in real physical addresses, are physical addresses. The main difference has to do with whether you get the virtual mailbox capability in each case. For example, if you were to get an office space (which is a physical address,) you would normally not get the virtual mailbox capability. On the other hand, virtual addresses come with the virtual mailbox capability (hence why they are labeled as virtual.) So it all has to do with whether you want to receive your mail digitally (then you would want to get a virtual address,) or if you want to pick it up in person every time (then you would want to get a physical address without the virtual mailbox capability.)
Getting a physical address is simple. Pick a plan (personal or business,) complete a change of address with the USPS and you’re good to go. All mail moving forward will arrive at your physical address, and can be accessed digitally from your computer or phone.
