7. If you want to complete the sign-up process click on the blue "Go to my Smart Mailbox" button.
8. Verify name(s) on the account by uploading two photo IDs per person
Once the credit card is active on your account, you will then need to upload two forms of ID for each name on the account.
Please read the following guide on how to add a name and what IDs are required. This link will open in a new tab.
9. We will approve each name and set of IDs on the account
The names and IDs will be sent to an approval queue and we will approve them. Once approved, you will receive a notification email stating this.
10. Your account is now activated for non-USPS mail
If you have not opted for a future start, your account is now active and will be charged the amount of your chosen plan from step 1. You can begin to receive mail from non-USPS shipping carriers (such as FedEx, DHL and UPS).
11. If you want to receive USPS delivered mail, complete and have the pre-filled 1583 form notarized
To receive mail delivered by USPS, the USPS require you to provide a notarized 1583 form. Each individual over 18 requires one form per person. For married couples, you can both be in the same form. For minors (those under 18 years old), they can be on the same form as their parents.
To make it easier for you, we have created a pre-filled form that you can download directly from your account.
To have it notarized, you can use your own or choose to use our notary via Skype for a fee of $10 per form.
For more information about how to complete the 1583 form, please see the following guide.
Once the notarization is complete, you will need to upload the form into your account.
Please note: our system is currently only able to receive one 1583 form. If you have multiple 1583 forms for the different names on your account, please attach the additional forms to an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will upload it to your account for you.
12. Your account is now complete!
That's it! If all documentation is added and your credit card has been verified, you are all set to begin using US Global Mail!
