Does your API support single-line address verification?
Currently our API does not support validation of addresses entered as a single line of text. While it is possible in some cases to provide complete address information in a single line we don't currently have a way to reliably and accurately parse these for all possible address formats.
Because addresses can have such high variance, compounded by the possibility of being mis-entered, for now we have to require that addresses be entered broken up into their component parts.
For example, here are two addresses just within the USA and US territories:
- BOB SMITH Jr., 123 Main Street, SAN FRANCISCO, CA, 94104
- MRS MARÍA SUÁREZ, URB LAS GLADIOLAS ,150 CALLE A, SAN JUAN,PR, 00926-3232
Even between these two addresses, there are too many differences in how each address component is presented. In order to ensure data accuracy, it's simply better to enter address components seperately into our API.
