How It Works

Shoppers enter their shipping address as normal on the Checkout page. When they click the Continue to Shipping Method button to save the address, Smarty Streets conducts its address verification. If the address is correct, the Shopper proceeds through the checkout process, If the address is incorrect a warning will appear with suggestions on how to correct the address.

The shopper can then correct the address and proceed through the checkout process by clicking the Continue to Shipping Method button.

Smarty Streets also suggests Auto-completed addresses as the customer is typing in their address.
