feature request - address lookup / based on location

Post by jpeters » 11 Feb 2021, 13:55

Hello,

it would be nice to have a option to let the customer to fill in the address fields.
a. based on current location (if available / allowed on device)
b. based on address lookup (based on zipcode and number).

based on that information the address fields can be filed with the outcome.
if non information is available the customer can fill in the fields manually.

B. requires google maps account (non free depending on amount of lookups) or support of others like hero.

openstreetmap

autofill address are therms the use..
google maps needs a developer code and subscribtion (every month $300,- for free).
most websites will not go over the free $300,00 each month..
