Early in December 2013, Global-Z learned from Australia Post that they were soon to begin charging a royalty fee for use of their postal address file (PAF), which became effective on January 1st, 2014.
Global-Z is a long time licensee of Australia Post’s PAF file. The PAF file helps us provide our clients with the leading address hygiene services for Australian data. In order to reduce the impact of this change, we will be passing these royalty costs on to our clients without any price markup. These royalties will be in addition to our regular address hygiene service fees.
Our customers who have historically had Global-Z process their Australia data have already been contacted by us in December with details about the royalty-based fees Australia Post has added. If you have any questions or concerns about this change and how it may impact your business, please Contact Us. We would be happy to help answer your questions.
