What is SphereMail & How it Works?
SphereMail is a virtual mail provider based in California and is just one of Sphere’s services; they also have SpherePhone, a virtual receptionist for businesses. As for their mail service, you get your own mailing street address, not a PO Box and all your postal mail is sent to this address. You can access your mailbox online through their website or the mobile app.
You receive notifications by email or text whenever you receive new mail. You can then log into your virtual mailbox and manage your mail by requesting it to be forwarded, shredded, scanned, or schedule a pick-up.
Sphere has multiple locations nationwide and globally. However, the prices vary according to location. Their lowest priced location starts at $20 per month, and the most expensive location can reach $100 per month. Most of their locations range from $30 to $70. Their mail solution mostly caters businesses, large or small and they have a 14-day free trial before paying for the service.
What is the difference between PostScan Mail and SphereMail?
PostScan Mail’s locations are all based in the US, varying between street addresses or PO Box addresses, whichever you prefer. However, an international mail shipping option is available if you’d like to forward any packages or mail overseas.
All of PostScan Mail’s locations have the same pricing, with the starter package at $9.95 which is a cost-effective solution for businesses and individuals. We target businesses of all sizes and individuals like travelers, RVers, digital nomads, and anyone else looking for convenient virtual mail service.
The mail automation process is similar in both companies. However, with PostScan Mail, you get new mail notifications and automatically receive scanned images of the envelopes of all mail and packages received. You can also log into your mailbox through your mobile device and manage your mail by sending out handling requests, classifying it into folders, and even setting filters to avoid junk mail.
And if you’re traveling or don’t want to forward your packages just yet, all mail and packages get free physical storage for up to 30 days from its arrival. You can still store mail or packages afterward if needed for a small fee.
