Official DPIDs for Australian Addresses

DCA Data Services sources DPID barcodes from the official Australia Post database, matched to your contact’s addresses. Our address matching software also checks your data prior to searching for the DPID and removes incorrect, incomplete, or copies of the same address, so you’re not paying for records that can’t be matched.

What is a DPID?

A Delivery Point Identifier (DPID) is a unique number attached to every address in Australia Post’s database. A DPID can be printed on envelopes as a barcode to be easily scanned, sorted, and sent by Australia Post, making direct mail faster, more reliable, and simpler to manage.

It’s important to use DPIDs when you send any direct mail to your clients, customers, or donors because Australia Post prefers items to be barcoded as it streamlines their processing.
