The PostScan Mail advantage:
Standardized Pricing – PostScan Mail offers a consistent pricing structure that makes it easy to manage your account. In contrast, almost all the addresses in Anytime Mailbox's network have a different plan and pricing structure which make it much more difficult to calculate your bill at the end of every month. A simple pricing structure is easy to understand, and all our plans include higher allowances for you to use by default. In addition, any add-on features are clearly communicated upfront, such as additional addresses for as low as $9.95/mo. This consumer-centric approach gives you the freedom to reap the benefits of owning a virtual mailbox without breaking the bank. Anytime Mailbox’s hidden fees often lead to big price increases on top of their advertised monthly plans without you being none the wiser. Anytime Mailbox VP Marketing even alluded to this fact, once stating that there was some work to be done on the fees to establish clearer communication.
Great Addresses – We partner with all the addresses in our network and with our standardized pricing, you get the same features and service regardless of location. Choose from some of the most desired locations in the country such as New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Anaheim, and many more.
No Contracts – We are so confident here at PostScan Mail that we offer the option to upgrade, downgrade, or cancel the service at any time. PostScan Mail also promises the ultimate in privacy and security by implementing access restrictions on all collected data.
Our starter plan starts at just $14.95/month and offers you plenty of benefits that the more expensive Earth Class Mail plan simply cannot match. From higher fees for simply receiving your mail and choosing to view its contents to charging you $5/month to securely shred your mail, Earth Class Mail's Virtual Address Plan costs a lot more for less features when compared to PostScan Mail's Starter Plan.
But a plan that charges more MUST get you better features, right? Wrong. Earth Class Mail offers less Open and Scan requests, less recipients, charges for shredding, and forwarding all at inflated prices compared to PostScan Mail. These inflated fees that take the benefit out of having a virtual mailbox. Check out the calculator below to compare how much more you can get charged just for simply requesting to open and scan your mail.
As you can see, just receiving and opening 5 pieces of mail already adds $12 to your monthly fee with Earth Class Mail! Call us crazy, but that’s not right. How is a customer to know how many items they'll receive a month? And why should they get charged simply just to see their mail? The PostScan Mail plan gives you a higher allowance so you can truly take advantage of our digital mail service.
So, the plan that originally started as $49 with Earth Class Mail actually came out to be $61 after receiving and scanning just FIVE items. Compare that to PostScan Mail’s $14.95. With PostScan Mail, you get more for less.
