How PostScan Mail is Different From Virtual Post Mail

Here at PostScan Mail we strive to deliver value that you can take advantage of. Our philosophy is simple: when we focus on you, the consumer, we can deliver on our promise of making your life easier. PostScan Mail allows you to have a Digital Mailbox at one or more of our 30+ US addresses where you can receive postal mail and packages and manage it wherever you are. We offer step by step guidance in setting up your account and don’t begin charging you for the service until you can take advantage of its benefits. This allows our customers to not have to commit to paying a subscription and not know what to expect from our service.

PostScan Mail’s interface is consumer friendly and intuitive allowing for easy navigation. Our prices also give you more “bang for your buck” with price rates specifically designed for you to take advantage of owning a virtual mailbox. No other mail scanning & forwarding service has strived to deliver what’s best for the customer like PostScan Mail.
