Address Validation API

Catch Errors Before They Catch Up with You

Add Web-based United States address validation capabilities to your integrated enterprise applications or website. The Address Validation Application Programming Interface (API) can provide direct automated integration between your website or enterprise system and UPS. As with all APIs, your customers will enjoy the depth of UPS services and capabilities, while your business becomes more efficient with improved processes.

The Address Validation API checks a customer's address and provides suggested alternatives if an error is discovered. Whether built into your public website or integrated with your internal systems, this API can help you reduce operating costs and improve customer service.

The API requires XML/Web Services programmers to code and integrate. UPS provides a developer kit which includes a developer guide that explains how to integrate and code UPS functionality into your existing business applications or e-commerce website.
