ZIP-Codes.com: ZIP Code Lookup & Validation

 

ActiveProspect partners with Zip-Codes.com to offer their validation services directly through LeadConduit.

What It Does

ZIP-Codes.com Lookup

ZIP-Codes.com Lookup gives you the ability to append information to your leads based on the zip code. A good use case for this integration would be when a lead has a postal code but no city/state.

Using Zip Code Lookup

Open your flow edit to the Steps tab, click Add Enhancement and select Zip-Codes.com Lookup:

Making a Decision

Zip Code Lookup isn't designed as a validation service and is ideally used as a Data Append enhancement only.

 

Appended Data

The enhancement returns the following information:

Field Detail Example
Outcome The status of the recipient event success
Reason When the outcome is other than Success, a reason for the Outcome is provided.  
Latitude Latitude associated with the zip code 30.353236
Longitude Longitude associated with the zip code -97.733682
City The normalized City AUSTIN
County The normalized County Travis
State The normalized State TX

What It Does

ZIP-Codes.com Validation

The Zip-Codes.com Validation enhancement checks the address against the ZIP code passed with the lead.

Using Zip Code Validation

Open your flow edit to the Steps tab, click Add Enhancement and select Zip-Codes.com Validation:

Understanding the Response

What constitutes a Success? What constitutes a Failure

The Zip Code provided matches the Zip Code associated with an address.

The Zip Code provided DOES NOT MATCH the Zip Code associated with an address.

 

Making a Decision

A filter or filters must be added after the step in order to make any decision based on the data returned.

A success response means either:

  • The postal code found for the given address matches the given postal code
  • The integration could not validate the given address.
  • If the address cannot be found in that ZIP code, but is found in a nearby ZIP code, the correct ZIP code will be appended.

Appended Data

The enhancement returns the following information:

Field Detail Example
Outcome The status of the recipient event success
Reason When the outcome is other than Success, a reason for the Outcome is provided.  
Address 1 The normalized Line 1 of the Address 1902 AGGIE LN
Address 2 The normalized Line 2 of the Address  
City The normalized City AUSTIN
State The normalized State TX
Postal Code The normalized Zip Code 78757
