I started in the day when many payments were received by mail, some in cash. Even today I receive some checks by mail and the PO Box is more secure than a rural delivery box. If I am gone for a week, I do not have to worry about mail piling up in the box in front of the house or stopping and restarting delivery.
The PO Box looks a little more professional than a residential address to many people. There was a time when "home" offices were not as accepted as they are now.
The PO Box does provide a slight layer of annonynimity even though now most people can easily find your address on the internet. ( A bit harder in my case as my home address in one town and my post office box in another) If your home address is on your business card, it is not just your clients or even potential clients that see it.
For $48 per year, I find it a bargain.
As for telephone, I use my cell phone for everything these days so that is the number I have on my card.
