I decided to start doing a newsletter for my website, and because of the Can Spam Act in 2003 you are required by law to have a physical address when sending electronic commercial messages.
The law defines as “any electronic mail message the primary purpose of which is the commercial advertisement or promotion of a commercial product or service,” including email that promotes content on commercial websites.
The law makes no exception for business-to-business email. That means all email – for example, a message to former customers announcing a new product line – must comply with the law.
To protect my privacy instead of using my own address, I decided to get a PO Box, which I had planned on getting in the future anyway. After I ventured through the old part of town where the main post office is located.
I was somewhat surprised by the cost due to their website quote on how much one would cost, Nonetheless after getting some more money in the bank I was able to get it, less than the two days waiting period.
I now have my own PO Box which I'm curious of what I may find in it in the months to come. If your thinking about getting one they were higher for me than what was estimated on their site, However I didn't have to wait two days after applying for one so it was somewhat of an even trade off.
In Closing, I think they should do a ranged pricing rather then a start at pricing, but that's just my opinion, and if you would sign up for the newsletter a sign up
