What is ZIPMove Product?
ZIPMove is a product used to maximize mailers' ZIP + 4® code matching potential in situations in which ZIP Code™ realignments have taken place and a change in city name and/or finance number has occurred (which normally prevents address-matching software from determining the newly assigned ZIP Code™).
To reflect U.S. Postal Service® ZIP Code™ realignment efforts, ZIPMove data files were created to assist address-matching software in providing up-to-date, accurate ZIP + 4® codes. The ZIPMove Product is available with monthly updates through Electronic Product Fulfillment (EPF). This product contains raw data and does not contain any software.
