A virtual PO Box is an online mailbox that can be accessed via your phone or computer. It works in a very similar way as a physical PO Box you would find at the Post Office, with additional perks such as the real street address and virtual mailbox that come with it. Here are some of the top reasons why you should consider signing up for a Virtual PO Box, with US Global Mail.
When you get a Post Office box or even a mailbox from an independent private company (like The UPS Store,) you will expect to pay double than what you would, with a Virtual PO Box. Traditional PO Boxes have your mail stored in a physical location (i.e no virtual element to them,) taking up more storage space and having to rent larger retail spaces. Depending on the duration and the size of the box, you can expect to pay a different fee as well. That means that if you do not go with the smallest box they have available, you’ll expect to pay north of $30/mo. A box that size, may require that you empty your mailbox once or twice a week so it does not overflow.
With a Virtual PO Box, because everything is stored in the cloud, you can receive an unlimited amount of mail & packages, for just $9.95/mo. Your physical copies will also be stored at our onsite location, should you choose to have the physical item shipped to you.
When you sign up for a Post Office box, you normally cannot use that mailbox for the registration of a business and to file papers with the Secretary of State. That is because you are not given a street address, but just a PO Box number. PO Boxes are also not eligible for marketing purposes, such as with the registration of your business on Google or for online directories. That means that the only real alternative, is to rent physical office space, or use your home address.
Physical office space will cost (on the low end,) in the hundreds if not thousands of dollars per month. Using your home address may put you at risk with it being publicly available for anyone online to find & see. Virtual PO Boxes give you a real street address that only is very cheap to use, but allows you to keep your home address private.
Other limitations that come with Post Office boxes, are that because they are owned by the United States Postal Service, they will typically only accept packages from the USPS and no other shipping companies (UPS, FedEx etc.) That means that postal mail is sent to your PO Box while packages are shipped usually to your residential or business address. Wouldn’t it be great if you could have both mail & packages, in one place?
With a virtual PO Box, you can receive packages from all major shipping carriers (UPS, FedEx, DHL, etc) and not just the USPS.
When you are in the market for a Virtual PO Box, you will see a few different options that you can select. The lion share of Virtual PO Boxes providers, will outsource the processing of your mail to a third party pack & ship store. They essentially provide the software technology and sign you up, and from that point on, you are dealing with someone else that you do not have the chance to speak to, prior to signing up.
At US Global Mail, everything from mail processing, to mail forwarding, to mail scanning, & customer service, is done internally from onsite staff. We do not outsource any part of the process, which allows us to be on top of any potential issues with your mail scan or shipping requests.
When you sign up for a Virtual PO Box, all mail and packages can be viewed from your phone or computer. That means that you can access your mail, regardless of where you are in the world or what time of the day it is. Additionally, you do not need to stand in line at the Post Office, and drive back and forth once or twice every week, just to pick up mail (with a large portion of it being junk mail.) Simply log into your Virtual PO Box, and see all your mail in one place.
With a Virtual PO Box, depending on the plan you select, you can have multiple family names under the same account and even have multiple business names using the same address. Expat families or people who travel, usually see our Plus Plan as a convenient way to include additional family members, without needing to pay for a second mailbox. Similarly for businesses, if you have more than one business or more than one location for your business, you can have them all under the same account for free.
Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to go to your mailbox and know that you will only pick up mail that matters to you? No advertisers, no scams and a lot less junk overall. With a Virtual PO Box, because we process all the mail that comes in, we will toss out all junk mail before it even enters your account. That means that you can just read the select few mail pieces you want. If you need anything shredded, you can request that from within your account as well.
And if you are socially conscious, you will be happy to know, that all junk mail including mail that gets shredded is recycled. That means more than 85% of all the paper we receive from customers (truck loads) can be used again and help restore our forests.
Virtual PO Boxes give you the ability to pick up your mail in person, should you choose to do so, as well as the option to read all your mail online. Once a mail item arrives for you, it gets scanned with an image of the exterior of the package or envelope uploaded into your account. This will give you a first idea on who is the mail from, the weight of it as well as the dimensions. If you want to have that envelope opened and the interior documents scanned, you can request a mail scan request and have it ready in your account within just a few hours. Mail scans of your mail will be uploaded in a PDF or JPG format, so you can easily download those or forward the files to someone else.
When it comes to shipping, you can have additional addresses listed in your account, if you want that mail item to be sent to another location. If you are located overseas or happen to be travelling, we can forward your package with up to 80% off retail shipping rates. That means that if you choose to ship the package through US Global Mail, you would still get a better rate, than shipping through (as an example,) UPS. Due to the volume of mail we process & ship for customers, shipping companies will give us larger discounts under our business account. Those savings are passed on from there, to you.
Additional features that come with your Virtual PO Box account, include free check deposits, free storage and free shredding of any item you want discarded.
Yes. Virtual PO Boxes are very safe, as all your mail gets stored at a secure mail processing facility with onsite personnel and security surveillance systems. All mail that gets scanned, is protected by encryption. Mail that you decide to discard, is securely shredded and recycled.
When you sign up for a Virtual PO Box, you can pick between personal & business plans with monthly or annual terms. Here at US Global Mail, we are convinced you will love the virtual PO Box experience, that we are giving all customers a 30 day money back guarantee. Try it out, and if you see it’s not right for you, you can cancel and get a full refund.
Once you sign up, you will be asked to provide a couple forms of ID for security purposes and complete an on-boarding process to redirect mail from your current address to your Virtual PO Box. We have created a smooth on-boarding experience to help you complete this process within minutes and hassle free!

Virtual PO boxes are very similar to your typical Post Office box, in that you can accept mail & packages, but they also have some additional perks that make them a better option for customers.
The most important thing about Virtual PO Boxes, that makes them different from your typical PO Box, is the virtual mailbox that comes with it. All mail that you receive, is scanned and uploaded into your account. So you can read all your postal mail online, without needing to drive to the Post Office every week.
PO Boxes, normally will only accept packages from the USPS. With a Virtual PO Box however, you can accept packages from all shipping carriers and not just the USPS. That includes companies like UPS, FedEx etc.
Price, is another important reason to consider a Virtual PO Box. Because all your mail is stored in the cloud, they are half the price of a PO Box.
If you want to register a business, you could not use a PO Box for business registration because it is not a real street address. With a virtual PO Box however, you can, because it is a physical address.
People will select virtual PO Boxes for several reasons, depending on what they use to manage mail (a residential mailbox or a PO Box.) For PO Box customers from the USPS, the primary reason for switching to a Virtual PO Box, is price. You can expect to save over 50% on your monthly membership when using a virtual PO Box. Not only that, but you also don’t need to drive to the post office every week and stand in line.
For people who get mail at their residential mailbox, the primary reason for switching to a Virtual PO Box is privacy & convenience. Getting your mail with US Global Mail, means that it is securely stored at a warehouse facility with on-site personnel and 24/7 security camera surveillance. With a residential mailbox on the other hand, anyone can break into your mailbox and steal documents or your identity.
Convenience is a big reason why customers sign up for a virtual PO Box. Getting mail on your phone or computer, especially if you are travelling or constantly on the go, helps make life easier and more streamlined. For expats, it is virtually impossible and very expensive to have every single mail item physically shipped overseas.

Getting a virtual PO Box address is very easy. Once you select a plan, you will need to complete a change of address with the USPS. That will allow you to get all your mail moving forward, to your new address. The only other thing that you need to do from there, is upload 2 forms of ID and send us a notarized 1583 and you’re good to go.
