ActiveProspect partners with Whitepages Pro to offer their Global Address Validation API directly through LeadConduit.

 

What It Does

Understanding the Response

What constitutes a Success? What constitutes a Failure

A Success status is returned when the Whitepages is_valid flag is either true or null.

A Failure status is returned when the Whitepages is_valid flag is false

OR

the warnings array contains any of the following: 

  • "Invalid Input"
  • "Missing Input"
  • "Partial Address"
  • "Invalid Country Code"


 

What constitutes a Skip? What constitutes an Error

The Step will Skip unless the following fields are populated:

  • address_1
  • city
  • state (must also be valid)

- OR -

  • address_1
  • postal_code (must also be valid)

This step will return an error when:

  • Whitepages returns an error message.
  • LeadConduit does not receive a successful API response from Whitepages.

 

Making a Decision

The final step in configuring Global Address Validation is deciding whether or not you want to fail a lead when the address is deemed bad.
