What happens if zip code is incorrect?
ZIP Code™ or ZIP+4® does not match City/State.
If undeliverable there, it is forwarded to the Post Office as stated by city and state.
Contact Customer Service to open a case for retrieval at the wrong address. The driver will pick up the shipment. The driver will reattempt the delivery the same day if possible. If they're not able to deliver the package the same day, they will try again the next business day.
If the address includes the correct street name and number as well as city and state, it will get delivered to the correct address. This is a common thing postal workers see every day and we know how to handle it. The incorrect zip code may delay the letter or package a day or two but it should get there.
Almost 25% of all mailpieces have something wrong with the address -- for instance, a missing apartment number or a wrong ZIP Code. Can some of those mailpieces get delivered, in spite of the incorrect address? Yes. But it costs the Postal Service time and money to do that.
What happens if the zip code is wrong on mail? It will still be delivered as long ass the rest of the address is correct. The USPS system corrects bad Zip Codes automatically by looking up the address in the database of all good addresses. We live in the 21st century and this is so easy for the computers to do now.
When a shipper inputs an incorrect address when creating a shipment, the carrier will attempt to correct this address for a hefty fee. Within the U.S., FedEx also will assess this fee if the address is a P.O. box number or P.O. box ZIP code.
If the mailpiece is addressed incorrectly and has no return address, the mailpiece will either be handled by the local Post Office™ or sent to the Mail Recovery Center. If your mailpiece has not arrived within 7 days from its date of mailing, you can: Submit a search request in the Missing Mail application, OR.
How does FedEx Address Validation work? This service checks if the entered street, city, state (province in some cases), or postal/zip code is correct or not. In some cases, FedEx Address Validation may be able to add missing information depending on the verification of the provided information against reference data.
On the other hand, there should be no issue if the postage charge is the same, and you can drop off the package at a different zip code location. You may also be interested in: Shipping with USPS.
So what do the extra numbers mean? These last 4 digits represent specific delivery routes within delivery areas. This extra detail means an even more precise matching to a more granular level. It could represent a handful of houses on one side of a street, or even a single building that receives a high volume of mail.
Do you need the 0 for the zip code?
All zip codes must be five digits, even if the first, second or third zeros are dropped. When sending a direct mail campaign, it's always best to inspect your list, sort by zip code – smallest to largest – and validate that all zip codes have five digits.
But it's important to note that the leading zeros are part of the ZIP code. It would be incorrect to say that the ZIP code for Fort Kent is 4743, or that Adjuntas, Puerto Rico, is 601. The only correct way to write these ZIP codes is 04743 and 00601.
If you need to change or correct a delivery address before the package is delivered, log in to your FedEx account, go to our tracking page, and follow these steps: Enter your tracking number or reference number. Select Manage Delivery, then Edit Delivery Address.
You have the legal right to keep it as a free gift, according to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Sellers aren't permitted to ask for payment for unordered items, either, and the FTC says consumers are under no obligation to even tell the seller about the wrongly delivered merchandise.
Anywhere? Yep! It doesn't matter so much where you put it on your package. What's more important is whether your barcode is scannable and unobstructed (assuming you print your label from a shipping label printer).
Normally, you have every right to keep them. In fact, the law is on your side too. No law will force you to return the items that have been wrongly delivered to you to the sender or to pay for them.

What is Address Validation / Verification? Address validation (or verification) is the process of checking a mailing address against an authoritative address database. If the address matches an address in the official database, the address "validates", meaning it's real.
ZIP Codes™ are an integral part of making sure your mailpiece is processed quickly and efficiently. Not having a ZIP Code™ on your mail causes unnecessary delay because it will require manual look-up.
Is there any way to change package location after shipping?
For a fee, USPS Package Intercept® lets the sender or recipient stop delivery or redirect a package, letter, or flat that is not out for delivery or already delivered. Most domestic mailings with a tracking or extra services barcode are eligible for Package Intercept. You can only request a Package Intercept online.
Shipping carriers use zones to calculate rates for certain services, such as parcel shipments. For services that are zoned, the greater the zone, the greater the cost in most cases.
When looking at postal codes around the world, there are cases where two different cities are served by the same postal code. For example, the zip code 94608 in California is used for both Emeryville and parts of Oakland.
You will see this error when the zip or postal code of your address does not match your purchasing card. Simply review what the postal or zip code of your purchasing card is, and re-enter the correct information to proceed.
There are 100,000 possible 5-digit zip codes if digits can be repeated. For each of the 5 digits of the zip code, there are 10 possible digits we can use (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9).
