3D Cart Adds USPS Address Verification


The good people at 3D Cart just launched an address verification add on. The price is a slim $9.99 a month, or $99 if you pay for a year all at once.

I like this feature. Not only can it help prevent honest shipping mistakes on the shipping address side, but it should help in preventing AVS declines on the billing address side.

Given that the fee to intercept / redirect a UPS package is $12 – $17, and that chargebacks can cost as much as your most expensive product, the address verification add on is clearly a wise investment that every ecommerce store should have.
