I live in the EU and love the variety and low prices in US shops, however most companies do not ship to the EU. Can I get an address in the USA?

Yes, you can have a US mail address which you can use to do your shopping in the USA. The forwarding service that you will sign up with will ship packages or mail to you (some of them anywhere in the world!) for a small fee. Not all forwarding companies ship packages, some of them forward only letters. Some forwarding companies will even do the shopping for you! Some will even deposit your checks to your bank!

When a letter goes to your address in the US, you get notified and see scanned copies of the letter, outside and inside. You decide whether to discard the letter (the letter will be shredded) or to have the letter be sent to you, in the country you live in. If the letter contains a check, some companies will even deposit it to your bank for you.

The main difference is that you do not have to be living in a country, e.g. in the USA, in order to get a postal address. You may be a French citizen, living in France, and get a US address for shopping, banking, of business purposes.
