We have this problem all of the time, because we get no US Post Office delivery in our neighborhood. We are forced to have a PO Box.
Many web merchandiser software packages cannot deal with a 'PO Box ####' in the address area. One example is NewEgg.com. If you have a PO Box in your PayPal shipping address, their web merchandising system will puke over it. I had to create a new address entry at PayPal just for NewEgg purchases, which only has my street address. As soon as Newegg starts using the USPS for delivery, it'll be broken.
Likewise, if a shipper sends a package via USPS to my street address, and does not have the box number, the package will be returned to him as 'undeliverable'.
It's a pain in the rear. I wonder if I can get around this by submitting a change of address form with my street address as my old address, and my PO Box as mynew address?
