ValidateAddress Service Operation - Customer Management

Determines whether or not the submitted address is valid for Microsoft Advertising accounts.

If the address is valid you can use it as the account BusinessAddress.

For Australia (AU), Canada (CA), and The United States (US), the operation validates whether or not you could ship something to the address. For all other countries basic address verification (AVS) is completed.

Code Syntax

The example syntax can be used with Bing Ads SDKs. See Bing Ads API Code Examples for more examples.

public async Task<ValidateAddressResponse> ValidateAddressAsync(
	Address address)
{
	var request = new ValidateAddressRequest
	{
		Address = address
	};

	return (await CustomerManagementService.CallAsync((s, r) => s.ValidateAddressAsync(r), request));
}
