Address Validation

Validate addresses before shipment and label generation.

About address validation

When fulfilling a shipment, prior to making a call to get a carrier label, you may want to validate the address. This enables you to sideline and repair any address issues prior to getting to a warehouse environment or at least ahead of packing and print-and-apply operations areas when a package might then languish.

The Address Validation API enables you to validate an address based on its deliverability. Please note that an address being valid does not necessarily mean that any given carrier will be able to deliver to that address or that all carriers will support the format of the address fields.
