The Storefront supports address validation using real-time providers (e.g. Avalara). Once configured, any address entered by the end user will be validated and automatically corrected to a standard format. For example, depending on the provider implementation, the address "1 jones E, raleihg, North Carolina, 27601, United States" entered will validate and automatically be corrected to "1 E Jones St, Raleigh, North Carolina, 27601-1021, United States". Address validation can help ensure addresses are deliverable and avoid shipping losses. It is also a great way to ensure your data is clean and ready for any future business intelligence reports you may run that require accurate address information on file.
You must first enable the Address validation feature under Configuration > General. Once enabled, you can configure the use of address validation under Configuration > Address validation. Make sure to enter the account credentials by clicking on the edit icon for your selected provider.
Please contact us if you don't see the address validation provider you like to use.
