Address search by ZIP Code™ enables users to search for a given address, including street name and number, using only a valid ZIP or ZIP + 4® Code.
Typically, address search by Zip Code™ is most effective when the searcher has access to a ZIP+ 4®, or the 9 digit USPS® ZIP Code™. By including the additional four digits, an address can be narrowed down to a very specific area.
Address search by ZIP Code™ can be done in a type down fashion, where a user types in a ZIP code™, and is prompted to either enter more information or select a given address. This type of search is an effective means of finding a full address without having every feature of the address. Additionally, it can be very beneficial to those entering addresses on the front-end by eliminating keystrokes and increasing efficiency in recording addresses.
