There's no automated service, but you can have the post office hold any package for you for a week or so. These guys look like they're going after the online retailer distribution market though, similar to Amazon's upcoming "lockers" platform.



In Canada the post will hold it, but couriers won't, and the post office won't accept delivery by UPS.

I found a way around: get to know the UPS deliveryman, have him deliver my package's to the (neighbour's) back door when I'm not home. Mostly books, so nothing I would miss if it got taken.


Combined with the recent price war, perhaps Google is recognizing that Amazon is gettin' all up in their business with Kindle Fire - ie, the best selling Android tablet prior to the Nexus7.

I would love to see this getting major traction.
