I will shortly be selling a service via my free 5MB of web space supplied by my service provider. As I intend to operate this 'sideline' from home, and my customers will need to send me items in the post, is it wise to give my home address on my website or should I consider setting up a PO box with Royal Mail (about £100 p.a.) ?
Royal Mail have pointed out that if I wish to use the 'shortened' form of the PO box address:
PO Box xxxx
I must ensure that I am complying with legislation relating to mail order sales (details of which they won't supply). Also, they will supply my real address to anyone who asks!
Is publishing my real address really such a bad idea ?
