What is address verification?

Address verification is a process, during which businesses and organisations make sure that their customers live where they claim to. It also ensures that address data is accurate and up to date.

When do you need address

According to many regulations you have to verify addresses of your clients. Alternatively it can be applied for high-risk individuals or as a part of Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD) for PEPs.
Tracking fraud
If there’s a suspicious activity related to transactions of the individual and you believe that your customer is involved in money laundering, a verified address can help law enforcement to track this person. Knowing the location can help investigators to look for the clues.
You don’t want a customer’s typo to be the reason for a lost package, do you? Address verification service can provide live feedback to your customers on whether the address is correct or not. This is extremely useful for e-commerce websites and apps.
