2,000+ U.S. and International Digital Mailbox Locations

iPostal1 has Digital Mailbox locations in all 50 states and abroad. 

There are over 2,000 U.S. and International Digital Mailbox locations and if that's not enough, new locations are being added every week. 

Digital Mailbox Features

iPostal1's various mailbox features are designed to meet the needs of its diverse customer base, whether a professional mailing address for business purposes, a safe place to receive mail and packages during travel, or the ability to preview postal mail remotely from anywhere. 

All of iPostal1's plans include the following features at no additional cost:

  • Real U.S. street address
  • Personal digital mailbox
  • Free app for Android and iPhone
  • 24/7 digital access to all mail items
  • 2 GB secure cloud storage
  • Flexible shipment scheduling
  • Your choice of carriers, ship dates, and service level
  • Shipping to unlimited addresses

This is not a complete list of everything iPostal1 offers with its plans. If you are interested in learning more, we recommend visiting the company's website for the entire list of features. 

Affordable Plans

iPostal1 offers four plan options: Green, Blue, Silver, and Gold

Green Blue Silver Gold
$9.99 per month $14.99 per month $24.99 per month $39.99 per month
30 mail items per month 60 mail items per month 120 mail items per month 240 mail items per month

 

All plans at all locations offer the same basic set of features, making it easy to select the right plan based on how much mail you receive. Plus, there are no contract or sign-up fees. 

If you're interested, iPostal1 allows customers to purchase an annual plan. While the yearly plans may seem like a lot of money upfront, they actually will end up saving you money. Listed below are the initial prices for the annual plans.

Green Blue Silver Gold
$99 per year $149 per year $249 per year $399 per year

 

Keep in mind that the plan pricing does vary by Standard, Select, Premium, or Prestige mailbox locations. That being said, iPostal1 is one of the most affordable virtual mailbox companies, as USPS P.O. boxes can cost twice as much as an iPostal digital mailbox.  

Security

According to iPostal1's website, "All mail is kept secure and confidential." iPostal1 will only open your letter mail if you specifically request the company to scan the contents. 

Similarly, iPostal1 will only open a package if you request a picture of the package content or to ensure compliance with international shipping regulations.

The Bad

  • Subscription Does Not Cover Optional Services
  • Customers Need to Complete and Notarize USPS Form 1583

Subscription Does Not Cover Optional Services

iPostal1 lists several optional services, such as scanning, shredding, and forwarding, on its Pricing pages. Depending on the location, iPostal1 may also charge you a small fee to pick up your mail. You do get 30 days of free storage for all mail and smaller packages, but storage charges apply after that.

These services are not bundled into the subscription to keep the monthly mailbox price as low as possible.

Fortunately, iPostal1 includes all the optional services (and how much they cost) on its Pricing page. 

Customers Need to Complete and Notarize USPS Form 1583

The United States Postal Service (USPS) requires Form 1583 to verify the postal mailbox renter's identity and authorize the mailing address location, a Commercial Mail Receiving Agency (CMRA) to receive mail on behalf of the postal mailbox renter. 

A CMRA needs to have a properly signed and notarized Form 1583 and two forms of ID to give you access to or request tasks for your mail.

You cannot access or pick up your mail until the form is submitted and approved.

The Bottom Line

iPostal1 offers more locations and more features than any other digital mailbox service, with consistent plans and pricing across the entire iPostal network of locations.

With more than 2,000 professionally staffed locations across the world, and a free app and website available 24/7, customers can view and manage their mail any time, anywhere, as soon as it's received. They can even manage mail received at multiple locations, all in one place, choosing whether to forward, scan, recycle, shred, or store their mail.

The least expensive iPostal1 plan starts at $9.99 per month for up to 30 pieces of mail. This is less expensive than what many of iPostal1's competitors charge for even fewer pieces of mail. And iPostal1 customers can save even more by paying for a year of services in advance. 

iPostal1's location offerings, low price, and mail management options make it an excellent choice for most people.
