Address validation

19/10/2008

Web to print orders may require a delivery address. There are 2 options: simple, one text box address or a structured address with multiple text controls.

Simple address

The user enters the address as free text. It is a quick and easy option for users. We recommend it for simplicity and it is the default option.

Structures address

The address can be split into the usual Street, City, State, ZIP, Country fields. It may be a good choice if you want the address to be passed onto PayPal, to your accounting system or address validation. Unstructured addresses can still be validated, but cannot be passed onto PayPal.

How to choose address structure

Address structure is selected per catalog. Go to Modify catalog page and choose either Simple or Structured address option. The default option is Simple.
