This request allows you to use the USPS's address verification service to determine an address's legitimacy.
This request uses LoanPro's integration with the USPS database to check if the provided address is a USPS deliverable mailing address. Address verification is an important piece of lending as it provides lenders a way to contact borrowers if they fall behind on their payments. Here's what you need to know about address verification:
- USPS's verification service works via Connections—LoanPro's hub for integrations—and it needs to be configured within your account.
- This feature can ensure an address is legitimate, but it cannot guarantee that a customer actually resides there.
- If you use this service via the API, pay special attention to the responses you receive; the responses will provide useful information.
