Being a store owner, you put lots of efforts for creating an ultimate buying experience. But, multiple fields to complete the checkout can slow down the process or even discourage your customers from making a purchase. This becomes even more apparent for the customers on mobile, where checking out on a small screen can be a long exercise in typing, misspelling, and re-typing.
Here comes the Google Address Autocomplete add-on for your CS-Cart stores which allows you to configure the autocomplete address in the vendor registration form and during checkout or editing customer profile at frontend. This makes an easy and speedy experience which will speed up the process by filling in the address info automatically with the help of Google APIs.
So, when customers arrive at checkout and start entering the first few characters of their address, Google Autocomplete will instantly finish the job and pre-populate their address. Wrong addresses and re-typing are virtually eliminated. This will save time for your customers and prevent typing errors.
