    How do I get a business address for my home based business, and do I need one?
    Someone told me that I never want to use my personal home address, my personal phone number or my personal email to ship or dropship products when I make a sale online because of the risk of hackers and indentity thieves. Was that person right and that I need a business address when I start an online business?

    I guess there are ways to protect your personal information with drop shipping, but the customers do need to get in contact with you.

    I would suggest a business address. You can use a post office box. As for a phone number, there are plenty of cheap phone number solutions out there for small businesses, like grasshopper, vonage, google. Definitely better than using your own address and phone number

    Sometimes a PO box will not work.

    You can rent a private box at places that have them. Then you can list your address as a suite number. These businesses will also receive and hold packages for you.

    You can get an 800 number from kall8.com

    Then you have a total virtual business appearance.

    Heya!

    I'm just passing on some advice from my friend who does this (if you still need it) but I heard that getting a Virtual office usually helps with this! A virtual office is where you rent a space that you can get your mail and everything sent to, but you don't actually work in! It's ideal if you want to appear to be branching locally, nationally or internationally - plus you can keep your home address safe! She used http://www.msoworkspace.com/ but there's loads of places that do it everywhere!

    Hope this helps, or at least helps someone in the future!
