Create direct mail deliveries

Direct mail deliveries let you generate an extraction file which contains data on the target population. You can then share this file with the provider who will deliver messages to the target populations.

Steps to generate the file are:

  1. Create the delivery

    Create a direct mail delivery based on the template. You can duplicate and configure the Deliver by direct mail (paper) built-in template.

  2. Define the audience

    The recipient profiles must contain at least their names and postal addresses.

    Postal addresses are calculated fields. An address can contain up to six lines by default: the first contains the first name and last name, the next lines contain the postal address (road etc.), and the last line contains the ZIP/Postal code and town or city.

    An address is considered to be complete if the name, ZIP/Postal code field, and town/city fields are not empty.
