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 iPostal1'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. iPostal1’s hidden fees often lead to big price increases on top of their advertised monthly plans without you being none the wiser. 

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.


Click To Compare The Costs!

Our starter plan starts at just $14.95/month and offers you plenty of benefits that iPostal1 simply doesn’t match. From higher allowances to open and scan your mail to providing free secure shredding, these features are standards for all PostScan Mails plans while our competitors charge you fees for doing the same thing.

But the iPostal1 plan is cheaper, couldn't I save more money with them? Glad you asked. While it may seem that you are choosing a more affordable option, iPostal1 allows their mail centers to customize their own prices. This leads to inflated fees for simple requests that take the benefit out of having a virtual mailbox. Check out the graph below to compare how you would fare under each plan.

So, you can see right away that simply requesting to SEE your mail costs you about an extra $10 with iPostal1. And if you go over the allotted allowance for pages? Well, iPostal1 also charges you a lot more for that. Call us crazy, but that’s not right. Why should a customer get charged simply just to see their mail? iPostal1's plan have limits that are extremely restricted and don’t compare to allowances offered by any PostScan Mail plan. We also don't charge for shredding, which iPostal1 does (and extra $2 per item).

As you can see, the plan that originally started at $9.99 with iPostal1 actually came out to be closer to $19.99 with just those ONE of the fees highlighted above versus PostScan Mail’s more inclusive $14.95 Starter Plan. With PostScan Mail, you get more for less.
