WORCESTER, England, January 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Improved Postcode Anywhere Magento extension supports mobile devices and a broader range of territories
Address validation specialists at Postcode Anywhere have released a contact data auto-completion app for the Magento Connect marketplace.
Free to download for any user, the address look-up plugin provides North American, Canadian and international address auto-fill for all the standard entry screens within Magento Community Edition.
Postcode Anywhere's IT director Jamie Turner said: "This Magento application is great news for ecommerce website owners and developers for several reasons.
"It's not only the first Postcode Anywhere service we've released on Magento Connect, it's also the first application we've built using the latest version of our international addressing client.
"This service now covers all of the major trading countries around the world as well as providing an improved interface which fully supports mobile devices."
Postcode Anywhere's managing director Guy Mucklow said: "Postcode Anywhere's extension combines the popular address look-up service with Magento's market-leading open-source ecommerce platform.
"ZIP code look-up and address validation might not be the first thing you think of when establishing an ecommerce website, but time and time again it has proven to be invaluable.
"Consider that overlong forms without rapid address look-up are frequently cited as one of the main causes of cart abandonment. Our recent study of internet shoppers revealed overlong forms only trail behind worries about online security as a main cause of aborting a purchase.
"Then calculate the costs of the missed deliveries, refunds and returns which result from mistakes in address data submitted by your customers. It all adds up to an obvious decision to integrate address validation technology with your website.
"Now ecommerce businesses can access a comprehensive address auto-fill service, across the Americas and worldwide, directly through Magento connect, and get it up and running in just a few clicks."
Postcode Anywhere's address validation extension for Magento is simple to install and fully customisable through the Magento admin panel, with the Postcode Anywhere integrations team on hand if users need assistance installing or customising the extension.
