Zumbox was a proposed hybrid mail service for receiving postal mail via the web. The service was intended to work in parallel to traditional postal services, whereby a digital mailbox—a Zumbox— would be created for every street address in the U.S.
People were able to claim their Zumbox via a paper mail confirmation code.
Zumbox was founded in 2007 in Los Angeles, and obtained more than $30 million in venture capital. After seven years of development, Zumbox announced in 2014 that it lacked sufficient investor interest to launch as a national brand.
