Startup – IrishPostbox.com – Manage Your Mail Online

CurrencyFair began life as a solution to a problem, and as the world gets smaller and more connected, similar problems are being solved by lateral thinkers in a whole range of areas.

In April 2015, Susan Donohoe established IrishPostbox.com. The idea came after a friend who was living in Qatar said “it would be great if you could offer a service where people got their mail sent to a business address or PO Box”. The same person mentioned the trouble Irish property owning expats have with their postal mail and the fact that many rely on family members or friends to collect and manage their Irish postal mail, which isn’t ideal with regards to privacy. After some research, training and investment, Susan secured the licence to operate the service exclusively in Ireland.
