What is SphereMail & How Does it Work?
SphereMail is a virtual mail provider that also provides a virtual receptionist for businesses. 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 from anywhere.
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.
SphereMail has multiple locations nationwide and globally. Prices vary according to location. Their subscriptions range starting from $8.99/month for individuals to $150/month for high-end business addresses. Their mail solution caters to both individuals and businesses, large or small and some addresses may have a free trial before paying for the service.
What is PostScan Mail?
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.
PostScan Mail offers three plans for each type of address, with the Basic Address 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 iPhone or Android smartphone and manage your mail by sending out handling requests. You can also sort 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.
