Part 4: CDYNE Postal Address Verification VerifyAddressAdvanced Operation

In addition to validating whether an address is deliverable, this programming operation returns a host of optional information at no extra charge including geolocation, legislative, census, and mailing industry information. These options can be turned on with a true value within the web service call (the default value is set to false). The advantage of the VerifyAddressAdvanced Operation is the ability to customize the data return according to your business needs.

The following examples break down the complete data returns available with the VerifyAddressAdvanced method. The first section shows the default information returned. You will find detailed information about parameter definitions in the Postal Address Verification Spec Sheet.
