What is ShipToBox?

ShipToBox is a shipping and shopping platform where you are provided with a US address to use it for online shopping from US retailers and shipping it from our US warehouse to your doorstep.

Can I start using my US shipping address immediately after I sign up?

Yes, once you register with us, your address will appear in your dashboard. Feel free to shop with this address and we will accept your package on your behalf. Some restrictions will be applied if your account is not fully verified.

We will accept your US Postal Service (USPS) packages only if you have completed and provided us Form 1583 and your photo ID. According to the United States Federal Law, we cannot receive any package or mail delivered by USPS until we receive the USPS Form 1583 and at least one form of photo identification from you. Please be aware that more than 30% of US sellers use USPS, especially if you choose "standard shipping" as your shipping method. Ensure that all your shipments include your full ShipToBox address including your street address and your unique suite number.

Do you offer any other services besides mail forwarding?

Yes. We provide shipping label service, so you can ship your packages from your US location to another country. And we also offer personal shopping assistance to purchase your items and ship it to you.

What is your policy regarding customer privacy and confidentiality?

As customer privacy comes first, it is our policy to never sell or give away any information about our customers, even shipment details. We operate using the most secure database server to store our customers’ information. For more details, please visit our Privacy Policy page.

Is there a setup or membership fee?

There is no setup fee for using our services. When you register with us, you will have two account type options, the business and the standard. The standard membership is free for a lifetime, and the business membership is $120/year. For more details and descriptions of the two membership, please refer to or contact our Customer Service Representative.

Is the US address provided considered a P.O Box? provides our members a complete street address (not PO Box) with a unique suite number. In addition to this address, our members will also get a US phone number to use when making online purchases. For example:

Tom Small
4060 N. Dupont Hwy
Suite 2, #TR00001
New Castle, DE 19720

What is credit card verification? How do I verify my credit card?

For your convenience and security purposes, we set this requirement to verify ownership of any new card submitted. An amount between $0.1 and $9.9 USD is charged to the card on file. We will refund this charge to your credit card after 24 hours.

An email will be sent to you to notify about the charge along with instructions to complete the verification process. Meanwhile, you can see notifications in your user dashboard.

To find out the amount charged, please check your credit card online statement or call your credit card issuer. Once known, log into your account, navigate to "My Credit Card #" section in your dashboard, and enter the amount in "Credit Card Verification" box. Or you can send an email to with your account number and the verification charge with the last four digits of your credit card number.

If the amount entered matches the amount charged, our system will approve the credit card to be used.

Please note your credit card may show additional handling fees, so make sure the amount you provided us does not include the handling fee. And the amount you enter to our system should be in US dollars, NOT your local currency (if other than USD).

Otherwise, we are not allowed to receive your USPS packages. Since USPS is a common carrier that many US retailers choose to ship domestically, your shopping will be more barrier-free if you can provide these necessary documents to us in advance.

    Can you scan my mail and e-mail me?

    Yes. We offer this service for an additional fee. Please contact our Customer Care Representative for more details.

    Can you receive a shipment under a company name?

    If your package was received damaged, or some items are missing, we will file a claim with the courier on your behalf. We strongly advise to check the condition of your packages upon delivery before signing/accepting it. If the package is damaged or some items are missing, please sign “box received damaged” or “damaged box” or “missing items/content”. This might further support your claim with the courier. Usually, couriers will refund the damaged or missing product at the value you insured or declared in the item list/commercial/proforma invoice.

    Will you consolidate my items into one package?

    We will always try to consolidate your items into one box per your instructions. Our shipping rates (per pound lbs.) decrease as the box weight increases, so it is always your benefit to have one large box sent instead of several small boxes.
