PostScan Mail vs. VirtualPostMail from Alan's blog

What is PostScan Mail?

PostScan Mail is a virtual mailbox service similar to many local mailbox stores. They offer much of the same mail services that VirtualPostMail does with respect to handling your mail (from receiving, scanning, and forwarding of your mail).

How VirtualPostMail is Different From PostScan Mail
Never Worry About A Change of Address

An advantage of our virtual mailbox service is that all stores are owned and operated by us so you never need to change your mailbox address or be forced to due to partner shutdowns.

COVID-19 Updates

While PostScan Mail centralizes their processing, this can lead to full disruption for processing all mail. In comparison our processing disruption can be localized to individual locations and can even be supplemented by moving processing to another facility if necessary.

We are also the only virtual mailbox service with a fully publicized contingency plan on exactly how we will respond to mail service disruptions below.

Our Response to COVID-19

COVID-19 Shipping Service Disruptions and Delays

Stimulus Checks for COVID-19

Finally, we own our locations so we have full control over how each location is run. We won't be affected by other third party partners.

For example, with PostScan Mail, your address may shutdown, at which point, they'll give you a new address, but then you’ll need to deal with updating all your mail or have to find a completely new service.

Another example is imagine if the new mailbox address is also shutdown as well.  That's a huge disruption, especially if you rely on the address to receive bills and check payments.

With us you’ll never miss important documents and checks especially, for instance your stimulus checks, because your mailbox provider's address is shutdown or you need to change your address.

Deposit Checks to Any U.S. Bank From Anywhere

PostScan Mail does not offer a check deposit service. With VirtualPostMail's Check Deposit Service you can deposit your checks anytime and in any place. It’s that easy. VirtualPostMail supports all U.S. banks that accept mail-in deposits.

In order for the check to be accepted through our check depositing service please be aware that your bank must support mail-in deposit services and the name on the check must match the name of the bank account.

While you are working and traveling it is important to save time, energy, as well as get paid quicker.

Our Check Deposit Service offers the following benefits:

  1. Convenience - Deposit any checks received in your VirtualPostMail account without having to go to the bank.
  2. Easy - Simply setup your existing bank account to begin receiving money.
  3. Fast - Once your check deposit request is processed it is mailed out within 1 business day. You will normally receive the money within one week.
  4. Cost Effective- Pay only for the deposits you make and you can save by depositing multiple checks together.

Real Permanent Street Address

At VirtualPostMail each of our locations is a commercial office with a real street address. We never use PO Boxes. You will have a permanent address that you can use for years to come even if you move and access anywhere. This is useful for frequent travelers and online or home-based businesses who do not have a physical presence.

Another huge advantage at VirtualPostMail is that every single one of our locations is a mail processing center that we own. This means all mail and packages are directly delivered from the courier directly into the hands of one of our experienced and certified staff members. Our highly trained staff knows exactly how to handle your mail with accuracy and in the most effective.  

Furthermore, the mail never gets touched or goes through another point of contact during the last leg delivery. There is no middleman like a UPS Store, which increases the risk of mail loss and delayed delivery times.

Other Money-Saving Guarantees

VirtualPostMail is committed to seeing through your request end-to-end. For example, you will never pay extra shipping costs for packages forwarded to the wrong address by mistake. If this was a VirtualPostMail operator error, we will take care of the costs. If it was an error made by the courier (USPS, FedEx, or UPS), then we would gladly assist in filing a claim on your behalf and help get a full refund.

On occasion, you may receive returned mail or packages due to USPS error. In those instances, VirtualPostMail will get back in touch with USPS on your behalf. We will have the situation sorted out free of charge and request USPS to re-ship with no additional cost.

Receive and ship mail and packages without paying extra fees to forward them to a central processing center.
Advanced Mail Scanning Solutions

VirtualPostMail uses advanced commercial high-resolution scanners to deliver scans in PDF with full-text search enabled. That means faster delivery of your scans to meet our promised turnaround time to you, higher quality in scans, and you can search, sort, and manage your physical mail just like email.

  • Our mail scans use OCR technology and combine machine-searchable text with original image.
  • Every mail is converted to a searchable PDF so you can manage and search the contents of your documents easily as email.
  • Mail scans are professionally processed and reviewed for consistent quality.
  • Mail content is always scanned in color at 300 DPI.
