What is a Virtual Mailing Address?

A Virtual Mailing Address is a remote location you use to receive personal or business mail, even though you don't live or work there. Your virtual address could be anywhere a third party is certified to receive your mail. PO Boxes with the USPS were the first-generation virtual mailing address, which was simply a po box rental at your local post office. Since the 1980's, retail pack & ship stores have also offered mailbox rental.

Now, the latest-generation virtual mailing addresses feature an added dimension: Digital Mailbox technology provided by companies like iPostal1, that enable you to view and manage your mail and packages from anywhere using a free app or going online. That's convenience!

While a virtual mailing address used to be strictly local, now it's global, as iPostal1 lets you select from over 500 addresses across the U.S. and abroad - all real street addresses at either professional shipping stores or shared workspaces in office buildings.
