Frequently Asked Questions
How are my credits used?
Each time you validate and/or barcode an address one POSTman Web Service credit it used, even if that address could not be validated. Each time the "near matches" facility is used, two additional credits are used.
If you use the POSTman Web Service service directly either in your website or if you use any other application that utilises POSTman Web Service one credit will be used each time an address is validated and/or barcoded. If a near matches facility is available, two additional credits will be used each time it is used. Back to top
Do my credits expire?
No, all credits that you purchase have an
indefinite life, that means you can purchase a quantity
of credits at a lower price and use them over a long period
of time. The exception to this is any free credits that may
be provided when you first sign up, if you do not purchase any
credits within the first six (6) months of signing up then DMS
may expire these credits at their option. If you make a purchase
within that period however DMS will allow you to retain those
five hundred (500) credits. If you make a purchase before the
free credits expire any remaining free credits will be retained
on your account along with any newly purchased ones. Back to top

How many PCs can I link my POSTman Web Service account to?
The POSTman Web Service is completely free; you only pay for
the credits used on your account. Each PC can be linked to your account by entering
the appropriate account credentials when configuring the machine.
This means that even if you have a thousand work stations with
a range of occasional to heavy users of the POSTman Web Service service they
can all share the same account. Back to top
I am an application developer and would love
to add address validation and barcoding to my software for all
my clients to use, can I do this?
Yes, simply add the appropriate integration
to your application to implement the address validation and
barcoding features of the POSTman Web Service. When a client purchases
your application, they simply sign up for a POSTman Web Service account of
their own. They do not need to purchase any additional software
they need only pay for the credits that they use on the POSTman Web Service. Back to top
I need to block someone from using my POSTman Web Service
account, how do I do this?
Log on to the POSTman Web Service member section and change
your password. You must then get all users of your account to
update the password in their account on their machine for them
to continue using your POSTman Web Service account. Anyone who you do not
provide the new password to will be effectively locked out of
your account. Back to top
Can I use multiple POSTman Web Service accounts on one machine?

before each job to ensure they are running against the right
account. Back to top
