Outbox publicly launched its alternative to mail delivery service in San Francisco today.
A Berkeley City Councilman has proposed levying a “very tiny tax” on email to save the failing US Postal Service.
Outbox, a startup launching in San Francisco today, is an alternative to the “old system” of mail delivery. Outbox will collect and manage your physical mail for $5 a month, so you won’t have to visit your postal mailbox again.
Besieged by financial woes and closing offices all over the country, the United States Postal Service is hurting. As snail mail is gasping for breath, digital postal mail startup Zumbox closed $10.6 million in a third round of funding, raising a total of $28 million in capital.
Zumbox has figured out a way to get rid of paper mail and replace it with a digital online postal service. In a big endorsement for that service, New Zealand is announcing today that the New Zealand Post will use Zumbox’s platform.
