A bit of background

iPostal1 offers virtual mailing and office addresses around the world. A virtual office address can be used to register the business or apply for a loan in the country of choice. The company was founded in 2015.

Clevver was started by people who know the struggles of international expansion. Founders Sven Hecker and Christian Hemmrich came up with the idea while trying to get a previous business venture off the ground in the UK. Hecker and Hemmrich’s metal goods were wanted by the Royal British Navy, but they couldn’t find a single supplier offering a good business location, incorporation assistance, post digitisation and a phone number in the UK. They took matters into their own hands in 2013 and now offer 63 attractive business addresses worldwide through Clevver. The aim is to allow you to start a business in all corners of the world with just a few clicks.

Range of Services

iPostal1 provides mailing addresses mostly in the US for private and business use. They also have a “virtual office” service, which includes a business address, digital mailbox, phone forwarding, voice mail and dedicated fax from $39,90 per month.

Clevver offers all SMEs, startups and freelancers need to expand overseas. Check out ClevverMail to get a digital postbox, ClevverAddress for a business and registered address, ClevverNumber for an international phone number, ClevverCompany to have us incorporate your business, and ClevverEnterprise to manage mail and build your virtual office with white-label software.

International Locations

iPostal1 boasts a choice of 850 locations, but the figure isn’t as impressive upon closer inspection. The overwhelming majority of the company’s digital mailbox locations are in the US. Only 12 locations are anywhere else.

Clevver’s 63 locations truly span the globe. We can get you mail in the US, Europe, South Africa, throughout Asia and even Australia. The cities are separated into four ClevverMail price categories: big cities, capital cities, metropolitan cities and premium cities. Big cities like Johannesburg, Portland, Hanoi, Mumbai, Lisbon, London, and Berlin start from 5,45 euros per month. Premium cities such as Melbourne, Taipei, Seoul, Macau, Jakarta, Dubai and Beijing start from 8,20 euros per month. Check out our locations page to see where we can also help you get a registered business address, a local phone number or incorporation.

Affordability

Clevver’s digital mailbox is better priced.
Here’s a price comparison of some of the cities the two companies offer. These are month-to-month prices. You’ll pay even less with Clevver when you sign up for a year.
