This will not affect the sending of your twice-weekly Batch Reports.

HotTip – How To Standardize Addresses

What does address standardization do?

See this HotTip online.

Address standardization does a few different things:

  • It checks the address against the USPS to make sure it is valid.
  • It fills in the county and congressional district on a record.
  • It completes the +4 of the zip code.
  • It homogenizes the addresses so all your address use the same capitalization.
  • It extends abbreviations like “Rd.” are extend to “Road.”
  • It adds the appropriate USPS recommended spacing.

So, what does all that mean?

It changes this address:

Abraham Lincoln
Wash, dc 20500

To this address:

Abraham Lincoln
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500-0003
