API Standard Constants and Codes
Postal Address Data
The following guidelines apply to handling data from our web service APIs that contain postal address information.
We use the ISO 3166-1 alpha-3 set of country codes in our addresses
For US states and Canadian Provinces, we expect data in the form of the two-character state abbreviation.
When providing ZIP code information for US addresses, try to provide a full 10-digit zip code (5 digit, dash, 4 digit) format. Some examples of US ZIP codes:
60062-1234 60601-1000 54445

The following guidelines describe conventions for handling phone number contact data. Generally, we do not validate phone information for number of digits, however if alphabetic and certain punctuation characters are present in a phone number the data may be rejected.

The following guidelines describe conventions for handling phone number contact data. We employ fairly strict validation on email address data. If the form of an email address is not valid (wrong number of characters, contains illegal characters), the data will be marked as invalid, which could result in the service returning an error, or at least marking the email data as invalid. There are a lot of publicly available email address validation routines, including regular expressions that can be used to implement basic email form validation.
Samples of bad email data:
email@example.com 1234@doma^in.com firstname.lastname@example.org
