Address import guidelines

  • The order of the columns in the import file does not matter.
  • SendPro Online or PitneyShip require the first and last names to be in a single field called Name. If the first and last names are in separate columns in your data file, you can use Excel's concatenate function to put them into a single column. You may also include title, middle name, or middle initial in the Name field if you choose.
  • You can use only fields that correspond to those available in SendPro Online or PitneyShip. The number of imported fields cannot exceed the maximum number of fields available in SendPro Online or PitneyShip. For example, CSV files exported from Google accounts usually contain many more fields than those available in the SendPro Online or PitneyShip address book.
  • Do not include \ or / (slash) characters in the CSV file.
  • Because addresses must pass USPS validation when used in SendPro Online or PitneyShip, the following fields are required. You can import addresses that do not contain these fields, but in order to use the address, these fields must be filled in.
    • Full Name and/or Company Name
    • Street Address 1
    • City
    • State/Province1
    • ZIP Code
    • Country2
    1The State/Province field only accepts two-letter abbreviations for US states.
    2In the classic version of SendPro, the Country field only accepts either two-letter country codes or the country spelled out in full. For example, it will accept "US" or "United States", but not "USA". For a complete list of country codes, see https://www.pitneybowes.com/us/support/postage/usps-international-country-codes.html. This does not apply to PitneyShip.
