When selecting a CARRIER AND SERVICE within the READY TO SHIP page, ShippingEasy will validate your domestic addresses through Dial-A-Zip, a US address validation tool offered through our carrier partner, Endicia. International addresses are validated through Melissa DATA, an international delivery validation tool, provided courtesy of our parent company Stamps.com.
If you address has been validated successfully through Dial-A-Zip or Melissa DATA, then your address will look similar to these:
If an address cannot be validated through Dial-A-Zip, or Melissa DATA, then your address box will look similar to these:
- If your domestic address cannot be validated, you can click 'Edit' in the address area, and you will be offered a suggested address if available, or the option to proceed and use the address anyway.
- If your international address cannot be validated, you can use the Melissa DATA tool here, for suggestions. Click the 'Edit' link in the address area, to enter any address corrections, or to proceed and use the address anyway.
NOTE: unverified addresses assumes a risk of delivery.
- Dial-A-Zip verifies US mailing addresses, providing the latest USPS Delivery Point Validation service, which indicates if a given address is indeed "deliverance" as determined by the USPS. This system will sometimes allow ShippingEasy to offer a suggested correction if it's detected as a known address.
- Melissa DATA verifies international delivery addresses and provides a tool for locating and correcting inaccurate or missing address elements. This system also supports lookups in ten different languages.
