PO Box

Get a cheap PO Box alternative from just £2.99 a month

A PO Box can make your business look much more established than if you use your home address, and one of the main benefits of using a PO Box is that you don’t need to reveal your home address if you are running your business from home.

On the other hand, if you sell online or at a distance, (such as by mail order), the Office of Fair Trading requires you to provide, at a minimum, your geographic address and not a PO Box. Similarly if you are trading as a company, you must display your registered address, which again cannot be a PO Box. And the law, in the form of the Electronic Commerce (EC Directive) Regulations 2002 require you to provide a geographic address and not a PO Box address.

Packages from as low as £2.99 a month

  • 28 day storage included
  • Additional page scans 36p
  • Forwarding letters within the UK at £4.99 plus cost of postage
  • Forwarding of parcels, packets or international letters at £4.99 plus cost of postage
  • Cheque deposit service £4.99 per deposit

That’s where ScanMyPost can help. For just £2.99 a month we will give you a unique, physical geographic address which you can use instead of your home address.

If we receive any post addressed to you, we will scan it, let you know by SMS and/or by email as you prefer, and you can then view the item online, 24/7, securely and from anywhere with internet access.

Just like a PO Box, this enables you to keep your home address private. You can use it on your correspondence, on your websites, or anywhere appropriate that will enable you to keep on the right side of the law. You can even use it as both your registered office, and as your director’s ‘service address’ at Companies House for maximum privacy.

Key Benefits

  • Keep your home address private
  • No contract – cancel anytime without penalty
  • SMS or Email notification of receipt of post
  • View your post securely online 24/7
  • Optional longer storage and forwarding

The £2.99 a month Very Light User service includes 5 monthly page scans, but the service is scalable based on your anticipated usage. Our popular Light User service costs £9.99 per month and includes 40 monthly page scans. This is usually enough for all of your domestic post or even a small business.

You can request us to forward items to you, or to store them on your behalf. Otherwise, we automatically and confidentially shred all post after 28 days.

ScanMyPost offers a realistic and inexpensive alternative to the traditional PO Box, enabling you to retain the privacy of your home address, and to comply with the law when selling online or at a distance. Unlike a PO Box, ScanMyPost also offers storage, forwarding, online viewing and the archiving of your post, removing all postal clutter from your desk.
