Campaign Description

ePostbox is a fast, convenient and secure online service that allows residents and businesses to send and receive letter mail, manage and pay bills, and also update current address.

Overview

Technology has brought about innovative disruptions and advancements to a lot of industries, the post office experience should be no different. When applied correctly, technology improves human lives and makes us very efficient.

The Problem

Between the time I finished university in 2012 until now, I have had to relocate to a new address at-least 6 times. Alongside moving my personal belongings, I had to move piles of mail papers (taxes, student loan documents, bills etc) as well. After each move I had to call up businesses I dealt with ( banks, utility companies, phone companies, insurance, drivers license, health, government , etc. ) to let them know about my new address change. Sometimes it can take up to a week or months to do this (depending on my schedule).

Moving really shouldn't be this difficult, I mean you have enough headache from moving your personal properties already.

Like most Canadian residents, I receive physical letters in my mailbox. A typical Canadian will receive about 2-5 pieces of mail weekly. Add junk mails and that number grows. When you receive your mail, it can be hard to keep track of what is important, which mail is junk or what bills you need to pay. Mail has a risk of getting lost, stolen or exploited and on top of that, storing and disposing this mail can cause frustration for you and harm for the environment.

It is quite slow and expensive to send mail in Canada. Canada post charges about $1 to send a single paper mail to a local resident. It also takes between 2 to 5 business days to deliver mail, regardless of distance. Should you need to send 1 page letter to 15 different addresses, that will cost you about $15 (excluding cost of envelop and printing).

Hi, my name is Stan, and I am the founder of epostbox. I have a computer science degree from York University, and wealth of technical experiences from working with multiple reputable technology companies.

The Solution

epostbox is an online service that aims to improve your mailing and post-office experience, while fostering a cleaner Canadian environment.

You can send or receive mail sent to your physical home address and pay your bills, on a single platform in the cloud. This process saves you and businesses money, time and helps preserve trees and the environment. 

No more paper trails, no more junk mail, no more updating multiple addresses when you move. Cheaper, faster and more secure.

Send Mail. Receive Mail. Pay Bills. Grow your Business with epostbox

How it Works

epostbox is very simple and intuitive.

A Canadian resident will sign up, update and verify your current address, subscribe to any businesses you have a service agreement with. Once you have completed the address verification phase, you can start sending or receiving your letters and bills on epostbox. Whenever you verify a new address, businesses you deal with will get notified of your address change.

Businesses can reach out to their clients whenever they want, with confidence that they are in correspondence with the right client.

epostbox can also be used as an address verification tool for businesses, when dealing with a new or existing client.

Businesses can also leverage epostbox as a smart mail marketing solution to inspire stronger engagement and action and boost revenue, whether your campaign focuses on acquisition, retention, loyalty, up-selling or a product launch.

Why Crowdfunding

The ultimate goal of this campaign is to promote awareness and get market validation for the epostbox project.

We hope to bring you the best user and technical experience possible. We are currently working on building out features for our first release.This includes tools that allows individuals create mail and bill contents.

A portion of your contributions will be channeled towards speeding up the development of features for our first release. The remaining portion will be directed towards sales/ marketing and raising awareness among businesses and residents  in Edmonton, Red Deer and Calgary areas.

If you are not able to contribute financially but you are in support of the project, go to www.epostbox.cloud and join our mail list to know when we launch.

How is epostbox different from emails?

epostbox differs from emails in so many ways. One difference is that mails can be used as a medium of address verification. epostbox is basically mailing (letter & bills) in the cloud.
