Why use the Postalcode Check API

User experience
Postal code data is validated real-time, simplifying and accelerating the order process. This leads to a better user experience for customers, less return shipments and a higher conversion rate.

Easy to use
No need to fill in addresses completely in your checkout form. Entering postal code and house number is sufficient to automatically complete an address with street and city.

Correct data structure
Always the most recent and complete address data.

Get Started

Request your (Sandbox) API Key and start using the API.
As soon as you have an API key, it is recommended to run our Postman collections. Here you can find code examples of the various services and products we offer. This makes implementing the APIs much easier.
