What exactly is address verification? It's the process to ensure the address provided in our form is legit and approved by the USPS service.
You're in the donation business, why did you build a service around validating addresses?
We didn't. We employ our best-of-breed strategy by integrating with other vendors who have a passion in the address verification service industry. We've built a solid relationship with SmartyStreets over the years and we believe they are simply the best.
How much does this cost?
FREE for 250 lookups every month! If you need more lookups, they offer a variety of paid plans as well! If you're a non-profit or start-up, after your account is created, reach out to SmartyStreet support and let them know your NPO status and that you're using RaiseDonors!
How do I get this working?
First things first, you need to head over to SmartyStreets and create a free account.

Next, create a new token. You'll supply "raisedonors.com" as the domain name.
Next, Copy your Auth Token and head over to your account settings in RaiseDonors.
