City names are possible if the postal code and street address are correct.Likewise, a missing or incorrect street designation can be fixed, as long as there's not more than one street with that name in the city.Which leads us to the other half of step 1: parsing.Parsing in general is an effort to disassemble a line of data, identify its distinct parts, and label them.Sometimes it's because an address is vacant, or has recently been vacated.
This supplemental information can range from nonexistent to exhaustive, depending on the company providing it.
And then, the unthinkable happens: Your address is invalid.
But there are logical explanations for events like these, and we can all find peace by seeking to understand the "why" of our situation.
Some addresses won't verify because, for one cause or another, they're invalid.
It's a painful truth, and it happens to the best of us. You think you're taking all the right steps, and validating your addresses before you try to ship something.
Failure to validate is the focus of this article, but the many different "whys" deserve their own explanations, so we’ll circle back to it in a little bit.
