Does Address Validation iO also validate orders made via express checkout (e.g. PayPal, Apple Pay, Google Pay)?
Yes! After the order has been made through any express checkout, customers will be redirected to Shopify's order status page. Address Validation iO will show a warning about a wrong address on that page. Additionally, an email notification will be sent to the customer.
Why is address validation done after checkout?
Validation during checkout would only be available for Shopify Plus customers. To make our app accessible to all, validation is done after checkout.
Isn't Google Autocomplete enough?
Unfortunately, enabling Shopify's Google Autocomplete won't validate the address entered. While it helps the customer filling out the form, the result may still be an invalid address (e.g. a missing house number). Address Validation iO complements Google Autocomplete by validating the address.
