If my address won't validate can I use it anyway?

Created:   |   Updated:

ShippingEasy validates domestic addresses through SmartyStreets, a US address verification tool. International addresses are validated through Melissa DATA, an international delivery validation tool, provided courtesy of our parent company Stamps.com.

Both domestic and international addresses will be verified when entered in the Manual Order window, the READY TO SHIP page, and the CUSTOMER ADDRESSES page.

  • When an address cannot be validated, and no corrected addresses are suggested, options to "Edit Address" or "Use Anyway" will be available. (see first image below)
NOTE: by opting to use an address that will not validate ("Use Anyway"), you are taking the risk that the package may not be delivered or could be delayed.
We recommend contacting the buyer to confirm the address is correct, or troubleshooting international addresses here before assuming any risk.
  • If a corrected address is suggested, options to use the suggestion, or ignore it and proceed will be available. (see second image below)
