Checkout Address Validation for Commercial or Residential LookUp for Bigcommerce, Shopify and Magento

Checkout address validation functionality is a system that checks to ensure the customer’s entered address is registered with major shipping carriers as a residential or a commercial address. eCommerce stores can use this verification process to reduce the number of checkout errors, increasing conversion rates in the process.

This custom functionality provides the ability to check an address on BigCommerce, Shopify, Magento, Miva, WordPress / WooCommerce, and 3DCart platform. If a shipping address is entered, address validation functionality checks both residential as well commercial addresses for any type of carrier in order to enforce accuracy throughout checkout.


This functionality is quite beneficial for the eCommerce websites that sell unique products that can only be shipped to specific types of addresses. (Vaping, firearms, CBD, Hemp, B2B, Oversized and more) If these kinds of products can only be shipped to commercial addresses, this function checks the shipping information that indicates a commercial address. When it is not a commercial address, it shows customers a message stating that the items can only be shipped to a commercial address.

On the shipping section, when the user enters their address and clicks next, the system will check if the address is commercial or residential via an internal API. This is the only way to know if a shipping address is a residential or commercial address.

The benefit of this functionality is that it prevents customers from shipping to an incorrect location. This can happen if the customer’s order is not updated with accurate information about their address, for example, a residential street versus commercial building or vice versa.

If this function detects any discrepancies in addresses and carrier combinations on store pages—this will be flagged as “Invalid Address.” These error messages
