Mobile Validation API Capture valid mobile phone numbers from your customers

Validate mobile phone numbers at the point of entry using our real-time API. Make sure your customers receive the texts they want from you.

How does the Postcoder mobile validation API work?

  • Your customer enters their mobile number on your form

    Postcoder mobile validation is easy to integrate into the existing user-input forms on your website or app.

  • Postcoder validates the phone number in real-time

    Postcoder performs a real-time diagnostic check without needing to connect a call to the mobile phone number.

  • You capture a valid mobile phone number every time

    Postcoder confirms whether the mobile phone number is valid, active and even if it's switched on.

Why use Postcoder for mobile validation?

  • Reduce bogus accounts

    Prevent fake, inaccurate or dead mobile phone numbers from being used to create bogus accounts.

  • Improve call centre efficiency

    Save time and money by verifying a mobile phone number is active and switched on before trying to call it.

  • Optimise two-factor auth

    Reduce the risk of your customer waiting for a code that never arrives by validating their mobile number first.

  • Minimise funnel leaks

    Avoid losing leads or customers at registration due to accidental typos in their mobile phone number.

  • Stay connected

    Increase the effectiveness of your SMS campaigns by ensuring your customers get the texts they want from you.

  • Enhance data quality

    Standardise mobile phone numbers by automatically removing unnecessary characters like spaces and brackets.
