F.A.Q

Q: Can I have someone else pick-up my package(s) for me?
A: Yes, send us an email at info@newyorkmailbox.com with the name of the person you are authorising and send a photocopy of your Government issued identification and a copy of the invoice/receipt with the person who will be picking up your packages and we will release your packages to him/her.

Q: Can I send my packages to NewYorkMailbox.com without registering
A: No, you need to register first on www.kinek.com and include your Kinek account # in your shipping address for all your online purchases.

Q: Do I have to include NewYork Mailbox in my shipping address name?
A: No you can use your own name and your Kinek # in the shipping address.

Q: Can I let someone else use my Kinek account #?
A: Registering with Kinek is free. We suggest that everyone gets their own Kinek account if they want to have packages shipped to us.

Q: How do I use my Canadian Credit Card to make US purchases? How can I purchase from online US retailers and have them ship packages to a US address that doesn't match my credit card's Canadian home address?
A: You can call your financial institution and have NewYorkMailbox.com’s address added as a secondary address on your credit card account. This way you can use your Canadian Credit card with US online stores. Or you can get a prepaid USD credit card from CAA or Thomas Cook. You can even use PayPal. These are safer ways to shop online without using your own credit card.
