Need a PO Box address but don’t want to pay for it because you won’t use the physical box? That’s the case with many authors. We send out newsletters but because of the CAN-SPAM Act, we must provide a physical address. Most of us don’t want to give out our home address for obvious reasons. And many folks don’t want to pay the post office or other facility a monthly fee to have a box we likely will not receive mail in.
Here’s a great solution! Viabox! This company provides a FREE physical US address. One you can receive mail at…or not. (wink, wink)
In a nutshell, Viabox is a package forwarder — shop any US retailer, ship to any country. Viabox “allows you to receive mail, packages of any size or even oversized items on pallets that are shipped from merchants using major shipping carriers such as UPS, FEDEX, DHL, USPS, etc.” You only pay them if you want them to forward anything that has been mailed/shipped to you. Sa-weet! This is perfect for those of us who need that physical address that is not our private residence—even if we don’t live in Oregon (which is where Viabox is located).
