Smarty Streets is an address verification tool that is available to Volusion Prime Merchants using our Premium Checkout. This tool provides verification for shopper addresses during the checkout process.
Prevents delayed delivery or undelivered orders
Eliminates additional time needed to correct invalid address after and order is placed
Reduced additional shipping cost of returned orders
Builds trust between Merchant and Customer leading to greater likelihood of return customers
How It Works
Shoppers enter their shipping address as normal on the Premium Checkout page. When they click the Continue 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 button.
