This plugin can be configured to provide up to 4 different data validation products. It replaces our previous plugins Crafty Clicks Address Auto-Complete and Crafty Clicks Postcode Lookup.
Adds address auto-fill, lookup and validation to address forms on the front-end in WooCommerce for over 240 countries.
The checkout experience becomes faster and easier as a customer no longer has to type out their full address. The smart predictive search helps speed up form filling and boosts usability. Every address is verified at the point of entry. Problems due to incorrect or badly typed address data are drastically reduced.
The defacto solution for address capture and validation in the UK. Enter any UK postcode in the search field, click the search button and the drop down will show all the relevant address results for that postcode. Select the required address and the form will immediately be populated with accurate information.
Verifies all number types and formats including mobile, international and landline numbers in every country/territory worldwide. Corrects and re-formats common mistakes within forms to ensure data quality.
Email Validation provides real-time validation of any email address. Invalid format emails are declined immediately while valid emails are checked to ensure they link to an active provider. The API verifies username and domain elements of the email address.
Customer Satisfaction & Conversions
Easier and faster checkout saves your customers’ time, improves conversions and builds loyalty.
User input is validated in real time and your customer database is populated with fully verified addresses, phone numbers and email addresses. Address verification can reduce failed deliveries by up to 50%.

In order to use this service, you will need to sign up for an account. You will then receive an access token which will give you access to our service. You need to insert this access token in the configuration options. We offer 30 free searches for testing purposes, but in order to use this plugin on a live site, you must have a paid account with us.
Our service is split into 3 parts:
- An API server that delivers the data
- A JS library that can retrieve the data, and generate a basic UI, regardless of platform
- WooCommerce specific JS files (located in clicktoaddress-auto-complete/frontend/js and clicktoaddress-auto-complete/admin/js)
The JS library is located on our CDN to ensure that you will automatically receive any updates. If there’s an update to the API and changes to the JS library are required in order for the plugin to function correctly, you will not have to worry about updating it yourself.
- If you have not already done so, you will first need to sign up for a Fetchify account. We offer a trial account with 30 free lookups for testing. You will then receive an access token which will give you access to our service.
- Unpack the zip file and copy the clicktoaddress-auto-complete folder to your WordPress installation’s wp-content/plugins folder.
- In your WordPress admin panel, go to Plugins / Installed Plugins, and activate the Fetchify plugin.
- From the admin panel, go to WooCommerce / Settings / Integration and select the Fetchify tab. Here you will need to insert your access token, which is required to use the plugin. To get an access token, you will need to sign up for an account with us, and we will email you an access token. On this page you can also choose the products you would like to enable. All products are disabled by default. Note that Address Auto-Complete and Postcode Lookup cannot both be active at the same time. For Address Auto-Complete, Postcode Lookup and Phone Validation, additional configuration options are available. These options will only become visible once the product has been enabled. Hover over the tooltip icons for more information about each setting. When you have finished configuring the plugin, click the ‘Save changes’ button at the bottom of the page.
- Before you go live, test the integration to make sure it is working properly. We have postcodes that you can test for free. For Address Auto-Complete only: SL6 1QZ, for Postcode Lookup only: AA1 1AA, AA1 1AB, AA1 1AD and AA1 1AE.
Postcode Lookup only: AA1 1AA, AA1 1AB, AA1 1AD and AA1 1AE.
- Once your trial lookups run out, you will need to decide on the best purchasing option based on the volume of usage you expect on your site. If you would like us to advise you then please get in touch.
If you need assistance, drop us an email on email@example.com – we will help!
Our plugin is compatible with https://wpml.org/ which allows translation of certain texts in the search UI. The following texts can be translated.
* Search field label
* Reveal fields button
* Hide fields button
* Search field placeholder
* Country search placeholder
* Change country button
* Generic error message
* No results message
* Lookup button text
* Search in progress message
* Unknown postcode message
* Invalid postcode message
* Server error message
* Unknown error message
If you want to use WPML to translate the Fetchify plugin, the following plugins must first be installed:
* WPML Multilingual CMS
* WPML String Translation
* WooCommerce Multilingual
You must also configure the Fetchify plugin first. You can find the plugin settings in WooCommerce / Settings / Integration / Fetchify. Select the products that you would like to enable and enter the texts you would like to use for your site’s default language.
- In your WordPress admin panel, go to WPML / String Translation.
- A list will be displayed showing all strings available for translation. First you should filter this list to show only the options related to the plugin. You can do this using ‘Select strings within domain’. You should select this domain: admin_texts_woocommerce_clicktoaddress_autocomplete_settings. This will display all the options from the Fetchify plugin that can be translated. Note that some of these options are for Address Auto-Complete and some are for Postcode Lookup. You can ignore any options that do not require translation.
- For each option, click the ‘translations’ button next to the string. Here you can set custom translations for each language that you have enabled. When you are happy with the translation, make sure you mark that translation as complete, then save your changes.
Your translated texts will now appear in the search UI!
