Address validation

This article applies to:Connector for Magento 2 for Tobacco

A warning icon

Connector for Magento 2 for Tobacco is currently in a closed beta for a limited number of marketplaces and will be available later this year.

Incorrect addresses cause additional costs and delayed deliveries. Magento 2 for Tobacco lets you validate addresses during the checkout process and on other shipping and billing pages to ensure accurate excise tax is calculated and a valid address is selected for on-time delivery. The extension prompts you to select a valid address from the original address and suggested address.

Ensure that you have enabled address validation for accurate tax calculation. See Set up address validation.

Enable address validation setting

Suggested address validations are highlighted. It just provides a complete version of the original address. Since the tax rates depend on the location, it’s necessary for the customer or merchant to review and select a valid address. Once you select the address and save it, the selected address is updated in the next step.

Suggested address changes are highlighted.
