Whenever you create and save an address for a store or a customer, AvaTax for OpenCart automatically validates the address and if incorrect, lets you replace it with the validated address. To validate the address, follow these steps:

- For a customer, go to OpenCart > Sales > Customers > Customers. Select the customer and click Edit in the action column.
- In the AvaTax Address Validation dialog box, to update the current address with the validated address click Apply, else click Cancel.
- If both the addresses (original address and the validated address) match, no action is required.
- If the original address and the validated address do not match, click Apply to replace the original address with the validated address.
- If the address details are insufficient for validation, the "Insufficient address information" error message is displayed. Add additional address details and validate again.
- If the address details are incorrect, the "Unable to validate the address" error message is displayed. Type the correct address and validate again.
- If the address details contain an incorrect or invalid zip / postal code, the "Invalid Zip / Postal Code" error message is displayed. Type the correct zip / postal code and validate again.
