DPV® (DELIVERY POINT VALIDATION)
Delivery Point Validation (DPV®) enhances ordinary address validation by confirming the existence of a specific address and the fact that it can be delivered to.
Delivery Point Validation (DPV®) goes beyond validating that an address is correctly formatted and within a valid range of addresses in the USPS® data file. DPV can validate that a mailing address - right down to the apartment or suite number - does exist and is a valid destination for a mailing or package.
As you may be aware, when packages are shipped to nonexistent addresses, companies can lose money through:
- processing returned mail and packages
- correcting addresses by contacting customers
- losing (dissatisfied) customers altogether
