Address verification software has to go through a stringent test to ensure the highest quality validation processes. Systems with certification must run their verification while considering the following areas;

  • ZIP+4/ Delivery Point Coding
  • 5-Digit Coding
  • Carrier Route Coding
  • DPV or DSF2

  • RDI
  • LACSLink

What Is USPS Address Validation? and, How Can I Get ROI With Address Validation?

USPS, America’s largest postal service, uses a proprietary method for cross-referencing postal addresses to check their accuracy before you send mail. It qualifies businesses to claim USPS Marketing Mail and First-Class mail prices. However, this software has limited use cases.

PostGrid’s USPS address verification is a CASS-certified API that verifies addresses against the official USPS database for multiple use cases with maximum efficiency and integration features. You ensure a better ROI and reduced return mail when you verify your mailing lists with our API for your marketing campaigns.

What Counts As An Address Verification?

Address verification is a service offered to a business that verifies whether the address provided by the customer is accurate. An address may be verified using an API or by comparing it with a database of public addresses. Businesses must verify their addresses to protect themselves from fraudulent orders and minimize chargeback risks. Also, it helps businesses avoid problems such as undelivered packages by verifying addresses.

How to Opt For Address Verification?

You can contact a PostGrid sales representative and sign up for our services. Also, you can get a USPS address verification API for your business. The process is straightforward. Get started today!

How Does Address Verification Work?

Based on years of experience in matching and resolving addresses, PostGrid's address verification API leverages advanced match logic. The street-level validation of US and world addresses is done by matching the address to millions of records based on the country, state, and zip code information. We have implemented our expertise throughout the entire process to identify, detect, and fix issues we've encountered and fixed over time.

How do I Verify an Incomplete USPS Address?

You must confirm the mailing address with the recipient twice before mailing anything. Integrating PostGrid's autocomplete API into your website could be one solution to getting accurate addresses without typing everything.

Using fuzzy matching, you can add the missing details, rectify spacing errors, capitalize your addresses properly, and insert valid ZIP+4 codes. It gives you delivery-ready delivery addresses and avoids the incomplete USPS address problem. We use more data sources for the verification than the USPS address checker.

Does Address Validation API Provide Identity Data?

No, PostGrid's Address Verification API does not provide information on residents. Additionally, we do not unveil any identifiable information that is behind the address or even address metadata. Our Restful API provides data in the return if a customer inputs an address.

How Do I Verify if an Address Exists?

Most countries across the world maintain a respective address database. Individuals, businesses, and postal companies use this database to verify their addresses. This database can give you assurance about the existence of an address.

Each country uses a standard format for postal addresses. However, people may use different methods to write addresses. A reliable address standardization tool is necessary to convert your address according to local postal standards.

What is the USPS API?

USPS provides an official API to verify and standardize addresses to match the USPS address format. They maintain a vast database of 160 million addresses in the United States with residential, business, and post office box delivery points. However, there are strict terms of use to implement the USPS API.

The address data completeness doesn’t consider private delivery companies like FedEx, DHL, UPS, and Amazon. In contrast, our API relies on USPS as well as other genuine sources of address information. It vastly improves the accuracy of the verification process.

You can also sign up for an account or contact our sales team to integrate our API right away!

What is Acceptable as Proof of Address?

Proof of address or residency is necessary to verify where an individual lives. It is different from other ID verification documents. Not every government-issued document has your current address.

Individuals with no proof of address document may prefer to buy a post office box in the U.S. to receive mail. However, it doesn't work as a residential address. The proof of address verification document allows individuals to access multiple services and allows banks to keep track of customers. Examples of acceptable proof:

  • Utility Bills
  • Bank or Credit Card Statements
  • Insurance Policies
  • Lease Agreements
  • Rent Agreements
  • Residence Permits
  • Letters of Employment
  • Vehicle Registrations
  • Driver’s Licenses
  • Company Payslips

What is Digital Address Verification?

Digital address verification refers to the address verification process with automation that provides real-time verification. It also relies on various databases, algorithms, and mapping software to cross-verify and ensure the highest accuracy of address data.

This approach provides numerous advantages over manual verification. Some notable benefits of digital address verification are improved efficiency and reduced errors.

What is Address Validation vs. Verification?

Many individuals use these terms interchangeably. However, there are major differences between the two terms. Address validation ensures that your addresses are correct and deliverable. In contrast, address verification helps update and enhance your address data.

Professionals use address validation to resolve the problem of poor data collection at the entry point. An address verification tool compares addresses against an official directory, such as USPS or Canada Post, to ensure deliverability.

Which Data Sources an Address Verification API Uses for the Verification Process?

A reliable address verification tool like PostGrid may rely on multiple official and other databases to verify global addresses. For example, we have CASS (USPS), SERP (Canada), AMAS (Australia), and PAF (Royal Mail) certifications to provide accurate results for address verification queries.
