Notes about One Balance

Cannot use a P.O. Box to Register a One Balance Account

When creating a ShippingEasy One Balance account, you cannot use a P.O. Box for your address. If your business only has a P.O. Box address, you can enter the address for your local post office instead.

To avoid registration errors, make sure the Post Office address validates with USPS by using this validation tool: USPS ZIP Code by Address Lookup
