  • Address Verification

    Is anyone using a company for address verification at check-out? If so, who are they and what type of experience have you had with them.

    We are looking for a program that will offer the customer a correct address choice. We do not want one that will state the address is incorrect, because it is not in all caps.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Please clarify. Which service will not validate if the address is not in all caps?

    Thanks.

      The 3dCart service app for $9.99 per month, will bring up the pop up message and show all caps as an option. We dropped this service, as it was frustrating to customers to have a pop up even though the address they typed was correct, just not all caps.

      We tried to use Addrexx, but had alot of trouble getting ahold of real people to talk to, so we decided against it.

        Coincidentally, we cancelled the 3dCart Address Verification a few days before your post. We knew some customers had difficulty checking out but were never able to truly ascertain the reasons. There did seem to be problems depending on the device and browser.

          Web Coder Needed

          I need to see if anyone knows of a developer that can work Java Script. What I am looking for more specifically is: There is an address verification system that can report Commercial or Residential Addresses, I need someone to code and pull out the data and email it to us on each order.

          The program reports this:

          Summary

          Address format standardized
          Fixed street spelling
          ZIP+4 matched
          Confirmed entire address
          Confirmed without private mailbox

          Coordinates 41.0244, -80.66685 (Zip9 precision) Locate on map
          ZIP+4 Code 4804
          County Name Mahoning
          Record Type S (Street)
          Congressional
          District 13
          Carrier Route C032
          Vacant N
          Active Y
          RDI Commercial

              That is the company I am trying to work with, if I can get someone to do some coding.

                Try the guys at Convergent 7 and ask for Scott. They should be able to help you.

                  Where is their Address Verification section? Can you post that link?

                  Smarty Streets has still not gotten back to me, so I guess we will not be using them. They do not seem to function with 3DCart. They were going to get back to me, but I still have not heard back.

                  I guess I am back to looking for a solution.

                    My apologies for not being clear.

                    It appeared you were need of coding service and I'm pretty confident Convergent 7 could help you with it.

                    Ironically, I was going to post an address verification thread yesterday.

                    UPS Worldship has a great feature that pops up an error message when selecting the wrong type of address. I just need something similar to occur during checkout when the customer enters their address and selects business or residence.

                    I opened a chat with smarty streets and was told their software could provide the verification ""If your application can make an HTTPS call out to a web service and parse the JSON response, they you can integrate it.”

                      The problem with Smarty Streets is if you install their code, the customer is unable to check out. It just sits there and does nothing. Jeffrey installed the code on a test store and got the same error. He was supposed to get back to me, but did not.

                      I also need a system that will automatically pick residential or commercial for the customer, but Smarty Streets is unable to do that. They can only tell you after the purchase.

                      I sent them another email and am awaiting their response.

                        i am running some test code and have smarty streets working (although not yet integrated with my 3dcart store)...it successfully checks the address and reports back business vs residential (even bypassing the code for non-USA countries). I did find another product that is supposed to check international addresses but will start with smarty streets first since my customers are 99% usa based.

                        Some of the test code I found on the various websites appears to be incorrect and playing around with the code it now seems to work better. Going to try integrating it in the test 3dcart store, but don't see why it won't work....it just reads text fields and names.

                          But, will it give the shipping quote correctly for residential or commercial automatically?

                          Thanks your progress update.

                            SmartyStreets

                            I plan to implement SmartyStreets once I get closer to going live. A someone else posted, it just sits there and you can't checkout. I'm assuming there is a workaround for this.

                            Although "outdated", here is an implementation guide for 3dcart in SmartyStreets archives:

                            https://smartystreets.com/archive/implementations

                            Maybe it will help. If it does, please let me know.

                            Thank you,

                            Robert

                              In case you haven't found it, here is the SmartyStreets jquery plugin link:

                              https://smartystreets.com/docs/plugin

                              Looks like they've updated it since I last visited.
