Hello everyone,

As we continue to concentrate our efforts on Shipping Automation and Integration, we are completing a few 'micro' projects to keep funding our cause. This add-on provides address validation at checkout to ensure your customers provide you with the most accurate delivery information.

If you're a high-volume business or receive a high amount of returns due to misspelled addresses, this add-on should help save you money, and improve your customer service levels.

In a nutshell, our module checks the user input and either accepts it or provides correction:

The add-on is in the final stages of development. We are posting here to gauge interest, gather questions and feedback before the final release.

Do note this add-on requires subscription to an address validation service. Pricing varies based on the number of API calls you make. More details and pricing to come...

I am interested. What address validation service did you develop towards? What is their pricing?

As of right now, the service works for Canada and USA addresses.

We're using a data source that is CASS certified from USPS. Therefore, it is very accurate.

Rough pricing estimated are:
$10/mo for 250 calls
$20/mo for 500 calls
$30/mo for 1000 calls
$45/mo for 2500 calls

Keep in mind a returned package fee is around $10 so if you get a couple of these returns every month, you've already justified the cost of this service. Likewise, this facilitates better customer service.

This is a great idea and absolutely necessary for high volume shippers, glad to see it.


I would prefer that the complete, 9 Digit Zip Code be displayed for USA addresses, example 64116-2378

Actually, in most cases it does return the 9 digit zip. Not sure why it didn't in this case.

I will put a demo up shortly.

Was any progress actually made on this? I'm extremely interested in it and would like to implement it on our site we're launching soon.
