What’s the Difference?
Earth Class Mail
Earth Class Mail is a leading, trusted virtual mailbox provider that has been in business since 2004. We’ve processed over 18 million pieces of mail and served more than 60,000 customers. We offer a best in class virtual mailbox service to individuals and businesses—small and large—alongside dedicated, US based customer support.
Virtual Post Mail
Virtual Post Mail is a smaller virtual mailbox provider founded in 2009 and has processed over 4.7 million pieces of mail in that time. They offer three virtual address options in California, Nevada, and Delaware and process postal mail onsite at each location, which can help speed up delivery times to customers.
Earth Class Mail has a much larger address network— over 80 addresses across the US—so you don’t have to compromise on location.
How Does Virtual Post Mail Compare?
Earth Class Mail and Virtual Post Mail both offer virtual mailbox, business address, check deposit, and mail forwarding services, though each service offers unique advantages. Earth Class Mail offers a much larger selection of over 80 addresses so businesses don’t have to compromise on location. We have premier addresses like Market Street in San Francisco and Park Avenue in New York City that can help lend credibility to your business. Virtual Post Mail offers just three addresses to choose from, though each address is also a mail processing facility which can help to reduce delivery delays or lost mail. Both Earth Class Mail and Virtual Post Mail process all customer mail at centralized facilities using highly trained employees that have passed a background check. Given the similarities, your decision between providers will likely come down to price or address availability.
