    Hi everyone,

    I am looking for a address to register my business at so i can receive deliveries from wholesaler to sell on my online shop. ( thanks richy at eshop :) ) in order to get products from wholesaler they require me to have a business premises to sell from witch i wont have until enough funds save to do so. So for no i would like to get products maybe a pallet or two in size would virtual addresses be able to offer this service?

    Would the wholesaler no its not a retail store once i gave them the address? And it would be for one in belfast if any one no of one.

    Thanks,

    Sean.

    Don't know if there are any handy for you, but there should be some "mail boxes R us" kinds of places that will do that. In the US UPS and FedEx also have "retail" locations that offer postal addresses / mail boxes and accept freight and parcels.

    Some "Yellow" storage companies will accept your parcels but will expect you to come and move it into your storage before 5pm. You need to discuss that with them before you sign up.

    As already said storage companies do this for sellers. Mainly on eBay as it's a low investment no rates to pay etc etc. Just the fixed fee.

    You need to get on the phone to local places.

    We are telling you such things are possible. Individual capabilities, policies and prices are going to vary from one location to another. Start Googling, or heaven forbid, pick up the Yellow pages and see what's available in your area.

    They want your money and the taxes you produce, they don't care if it's from the bottom of a coal mine.
