With roughly 12% of the U.S. population moving every year, it’s critical to submit your list for Change of Address processing on a regular basis. Based on that stat and a list of 150,000 records, consider what that means for your organization:

  • Assume you last ran your list through NCOALink® processing a month ago. If 1% of that list has moved, you now have 1,500 records that are out of date.
  • If your mailing costs an average of $1 per mailpiece in production and postage, that’s $1,500 in mail that won’t reach its final destination.
  • By contrast, your list would cost just $250 to process through NCOALink LSP processing with GoData™, which gives you an immediate ROI.
  • The value is even greater when you factor in the value of what the 1,500 customers you may not have otherwise reached will spend with you.


How does NCOALink Processing work?

NCOALink is the USPS® service that consists of the names and addresses of individuals, families, and businesses who have filed a permanent Change of Address with the USPS. It comes in two levels:

  • NCOALink FSP processing updates your list(s) using 48 months of data from the database of permanent Change Of Address (COA) forms filed with the United States Postal Service®.
  • NCOALink LSP processing updates your list(s) using 18 months of data from the database of permanent Change Of Address (COA) forms filed with the United States Postal Service. It also includes ANKLink® processing, which identifies moves that occurred between 19 and 48 months ago. It returns the Move Effective Date (MED), but not the new address.

Both NCOALink FSP and NCOALink LSP include DPV®, LACSLink®, and SuiteLink® processing.


NCOALink pricing starts as low as $.75 / thousand! Pricing varies based on service type (LSP or FSP) and quantity. We’re able to offer two different payment options:

  • Pay as you Go: This option allows you to simply upload your list and pay for only the records you’re processing. The more records in your list, the less we’ll charge per record!
  • Prepaid Credits: If you plan to run lists on a regular basis, consider prepaid credits. This option allows you to generate additional savings by purchasing one large block of credits at a lower price per record, then spreading the usage across an unlimited number of jobs!

However you elect to proceed you’ll enjoy the same great benefits: no software to setup or configure, no pushy sales person, and no surcharge for faster turn around time. Simply upload your list, select a few options using our intuitive site, and checkout. Once everything is in order, most lists are returned in minutes!

The best way to get a price for your job is to signup for a free, no obligation account, upload your list, and we’ll show you a straight forward price for your actual job.  When you’re satisfied, simply checkout and we’ll get started right away.
