- Some customers choose PO Boxes to safeguard their privacy since they are tied to mailing addresses rather than physical or home addresses; however, ShipHero cannot use UPS, FedEx, or regional carriers when shipping to PO Boxes. Therefore Zone 9 rates will apply when shipping to PO boxes. For example, a 0.25 lb order going to a standard address (non-PO box) will cost $5.96; if it goes to Zone 9 or a PO box will cost $9.87.
- This cost will be added to your final shipping cost.
How can you determine if your order is being shipped to a PO Box?
A PO box address typically will have "PO Box ###" as the full address line, after the street address, or in the second address field.
Is PO Box an address line 1?
Can I prevent PO Box Charges?
You can adjust your website regarding shipping charges to PO Boxes or choose not to offer PO box shipping. If your orders are imported to ShipHero using a PO box address, we will add the Zone 9 cost to your shipping cost. You can also apply an order hold before the order is processed if you want to ask your customer to provide an alternative location.
- The expedited shipping method for PO box is not available.
- Please keep in mind that you can only make adjustments before the warehouse processes your orders. No credits or changes will be warranted.
