What is Address Verification?

Address verification is a process that compares an address against the official USPS database and tries to find a match. If a match is found, it means that the address is deliverable. If an address is not found, address verification software will correct the address, if applicable, and then compare it again against the database. This is part of a process called the Data Hygiene process, which keeps addresses and contact data listed in the USPS and other databases accurate.

Why Use Postal Address Verification

Save time, money, and resources by verifying that addresses are deliverable before you send mailings or packages.
