Are you looking to get started on virtual mailboxes but have no idea how to register for one? We got you covered. In this article, we will discuss the steps to do in order to enjoy a virtual mailbox in the U.S. Without further ado, let’s start:
A step by step guide in registering for a virtual mail service
First of all, check out each of the mail service providers on the market right now, and compare their features. Select the mail deal that will serve your organization’s needs best, as well as your personal preferences. Afterward, you should do the following:
- Accomplish the form called USPS 1583. This form will allow virtual mailbox service providers to get your mail in your place. This is essential so that they will be able to scan your mails and upload them to their servers for you to view.
- Change your address registered with the USPS. A change of address request should be filed with the USPS, allowing you to forward all the mails addressed to you to a different location. This different location is of course the address of the virtual mailbox service provider. This mail forwarding set up can be set as either non-permanent or permanent, and you can apply for it both physically at their office, or online. If you are planning to use virtual mailbox for a long time, we suggest you set a permanent arrangement.
- Forward all your mails and packages to the address of the virtual mailbox. The virtual mailbox company will then scan all your mails, and upload the scans on your virtual mailbox profile.
- Open your virtual mailbox profile provided by the company, and enjoy the new features, such as mail scanning and forwarding, shredding, etc.
