Posting Rules
This forum was created to help 3dcart users share tips on getting the best out of the service, offer knowledge and experiences about e-commerce in general, and to promote a positive environment in which our merchants can request/dispense advice regarding best practices.

The forum was not created for 3dcart users to submit requests for customer support. Any support related thread will be removed and a support ticket will be placed on your behalf. If you have technical difficulties please visit http://support.3dcart.com.

The 3dcart forum is also not intended to be a medium in which to express dissatisfaction about 3dcart's service, policies or its management and staff. Threads of this nature will also be removed from the forum. If a support issue with your 3dcart store was not resolved in a satisfactory manner; or if you feel that a particular 3dcart offering/policy is not to your liking, please let us know by emailing [email protected] so we can address your concerns directly.

Again, our purpose is to cultivate a positive learning environment for our merchants rather than platform in which to express grievances.

Very Important Rules:
* Never give away your store administration login/password in this forum.

Should you need technical help, please let 3dcart staff help.
Also, please be aware that 3dcart staff will NEVER need to ask for your 3dcart related passwords.

* Also, while these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently, we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.
* You cannot post any affiliate or referral links, or post anything asking for a referral. Such posts will be subject to removal.
* You cannot post advertisements or notices for contests.

  • Verify Business Address

    Is there an app that can verify whether an address is commercial or residential? I have never allowed customers to have a choice because I fear that many will choose Commercial because it's cheaper and they are not really a business and then I'm out the difference (unless I up the percentage for Ground shipping calculations). Right now I verify using ShipStation but I am evaluating other shipping module providers that don't verify whether an address is a business or not.

    Thanks

    Worldship can, as well as USPS shipping platforms like Endicia, but I don't know of anything for stores like ours.

    3dcart sells an address verification add-on that queries USPS for addresses and offers corrections. Why it can't also silently check that box in the background at the same time is... not something I know.

      Thanks Dean -- still searching for an answer. ShipStation is a good method for verifying, but I'm not happy with them for a couple of reasons and evaluating other options.
