Address Validation App for Shopify

How to use address validation in Shopify

The Fetchify Post-Checkout Address Validation app works with Shopify’s restricted checkout to validate a customer’s shipping address at the point of order completion and provide a single suggested alternative based on the best match appropriate. 

Installation & Configuration

NOTE : we always recommend installing on a development store or putting your store into maintenance / protected password mode before making any changes so that you can fully test the app before making it live to the public.

  1. Click here to go directly to our app. You will be prompted to login to your Shopify store en route.
  2. Add the app and follow the on-screen steps to install it to your store.
  3. Once installed check the app configuration screen to make sure it’s enabled
  4. The app is now validating addresses in your checkout.
  1. Log into your Shopify store
  2. Click the Apps option from the left-hand menu Shopify App Store Link Icon
  3. Search for ‘Fetchify’

Fetchify’s address validation app for Shopify automatically checks your customers’ address after checkout and provides a validated and correctly formatted alternative match using the best data from Royal Mail, USPS, and other leading global address providers, to ensure delivery addresses are as accurate as possible. Our datasets are updated daily to make sure you always have the most up-to-date data including newly built properties that can be as much as 6months out of date from free data providers.

  1. Customers place orders as normal but are shown a corrected address option on the order confirmation page
  2. Customers can choose this option or keep their original address as typed
  3. When the revised address is selected the customer shipping address is replaced on their order with the new data and the order is saved.

Unlike our other integrations where you need to register with us and buy credit packs, in Shopify all the address validations (1 per customer order) will be added to your monthly Shopify fees at a rate of $0.04USD per lookup. There are no additional charges or service costs for the app and the total each month will vary depending on how many orders you’ve received.

Not for this app. Once the app is enabled, every time an order is placed an address validation lookup is performed. These lookups are charged at $0.04USD each and will be billed on your monthly Shopify invoice.

Front-end customer experience

  3. If accepted by the customer, the shipping address will be updated on the order with the corrected address giving you and your customer confidence in the accuracy of the data
