How VirtualPostMail is Different From IPostal1

Worry Less About A Change of Address

An advantage of our virtual mailbox service is that all stores are owned and operated by us so you never need to change your mailbox address due to partner shutdowns.

Delivery Time

Each mail piece is processed at the location for the fastest turnaround time. On average, your mail is available to you the same day or within 1 business day of receiving the mail. We don’t forward it to a central processing facility, which can tack on an extra week to have your new mail show up in your virtual mailbox.

Other Money-Saving Guarantees

VirtualPostMail is committed to seeing through your request end-to-end. For example, you will never pay extra shipping costs for packages forwarded to the wrong address by mistake. If this was a VirtualPostMail operator error, we will take care of the costs. If it was an error made by the courier (USPS, FedEx, or UPS), then we would gladly assist in filing a claim on your behalf and help get a full refund.

On occasion, you may receive returned mail or packages due to USPS error. In those instances, VirtualPostMail will get back in touch with USPS on your behalf. We will have the situation sorted out free of charge and request USPS to re-ship with no additional cost.

Lastly, VirtualPostMail does not charge extra for mail storage after a limited amount of time, like a set 30-days as IPostal1 does. Our customers enjoy free mail storage for as long as we have physical space for it in the warehouse, which usually translates to 6 - 8 months. That is at least 5 extra months of free mail storage.

We also store and process all your mail and packages in the location you signed up for. As long as you pick a location where most of your business traffic is concentrated in, this will offer a number of advantages in terms of cost.

Receive and ship mail and packages without paying extra fees to forward them to a central processing center.

"Being tied down can be nice, but being tied down to a physical location is boring. That’s what Virtual Post Mail is for. It also keeps a nice archive of all of your mail, and gives you the same security as a regular PO Box"- Christopher D.
