Clean, standardise & format international addresses

Approximately 20% of addresses entered online contain errors: spelling mistakes, wrong house numbers, incorrect postal codes, and sometimes formatting errors that don’t conform to a specific country’s postal regulations. This can be a big and costly concern for companies shipping across borders.

Melissa’s Global Address Verification service verifies addresses for 240+ countries and territories at point of entry and in batch to ensure only valid billing, shipping, and contact addresses are entered and used in your systems.

  • We host the cloud service and provide updates on a regular basis as well as new reference data that you can automatically access at any time .
  • Correct international addresses by adding missing components such as postal codes, locality, and more
  • Standardise addresses to meet local in-country formatting rules
  • Transliterate to and from native country languages and Latin
  • Add precise lat/long coordinates up to the rooftop level.
