    Get one from UPS instead of the USPS, and it will look like a office suite when you sign up for stuff on the internet.

    Exactly what I was going to say. They use a street address instead, No "PO Box" Good for so many things :) got a site with no street address but still want google local listings with mail verification etc? Bingo!

    You can put apartment/suite number when signing up on websites. If they get a package or letter at the ups store with Apt. 1879 for example they know it means PMB 1879.

    Not sure if this matters, but when I purchased a UPS Private Mail Box a few years back I had to send them a scanned copy of my passport. idk if u also need to be US citizen or not, you'd have to ask about that.

    You dont need to be a u.s. citizen or send in a photo of your passport, because not everyone has a passport. They probably had it as one of their ID's they list that you can send in.

    There are many services that provide mail forwarding, virtual mailboxes, etc. that are just suites like:

    123 Some Street
    Ste. 234
    Houston, TX 12345

    etc.

    Also keep in mind that UPS stores are owned by individuals, not UPS corporate. The one I worked with when I was out of country was really flexible and helpful when it came to holding mail and forwarding all or part of what I had received; just in case you end up getting mail at the box. It was $15/month with a minimum of three months for a small box.

    They just starting allowing it (its only a few months since they started,thats why I didnt hear about it until you mentioned it), but it has to be "1000 Main St #1980" for example for postal box 1980,located at 1000 main street(location of the post office). They won't allow apartment or suite before the number or they will return to sender. If you need to have an address to look like an office or apartment and actually are having things delivered there, then its best to go with a UPS or similar company that will allow you to use suite or apartment in the address.
