Postcode Programming API  Address Finder API:


SimplyPostcode™ offers an extensive range of Address Finder API's (Application Programming Interfaces) for both easy integration into a web site or bespoke windows desktop software.

All of our Address Finder API’s allow access to Full and Street address Royal Mail PAF Data "Powered by PAF".

Many of our Web Services, such as SOAP, JSON and HTTMP/XML, can be used to implement Postcode Search functionality into any non-windows platform.

For bespoke windows desktop applications, we have a COM Object or .NET Assembly which can be used with our daily updated internet based data server, or with local data without internet access, using local data. These programming tools also include a user interface to quickly implement Postcode Address finder in your bespoke software using our API.

In addition to the above API’s, we also provide an optimised Royal Mail PAF file data which is available to “Large Business Package” customers. This version of the PAF data is loaded on to your server using your favourite version of SQL Server. Please call for prices.
