NOTE: It expects UTF-8 character encoding. Be on the lookout for question marks (?), squares (▖) or other weird characters like �. They may be an indication of encoding issues and may result in data loss. Bad encoding or character loss is not something our service can correct for you.
With a REST request, you can include all the input along with the URL for an easy and quick way of sending a single record.
curl -X GET "https://smartmover.melissadata.net/V3/WEB/SmartMover/doSmartMover?t=test&id=61468773&full=john%20smith&city=RSM%20&a1=22382%20Avenida%20Empresa&state=CA&postal=92688"&format=restjson"
You can also put the URL without the "curl -X GET" command directly into your browser. You can also toggle between getting XML or JSON back using the format input parameter. As you can see, in this example, we are asking for JSON back.
Batch requests from 1 to 100 records at a time are sent using HTTP POST. This means you cannot send it in a browser like with HTTP GET.

Melissa products use a result code system to indicate data quality; the status and any errors. These result codes are four-character codes (two letters followed by two numbers), delimited by commas. Result code definitions are shared among Melissa products. Instead of looking at multiple properties and methods to determine status, you can look at the output of the results parameter.
