Key features

Like other address verification services, our tool checks for address accuracy but what really makes our software unique is the range of product features we offer, backed by global coverage and our team of experts.

Real-time address search

As soon as a business name, street or postcode is typed, suggestions to auto-complete the address are immediately provided.

Instantly international

A single, simple-to-use solution for searching and verifying addresses from over 245 countries and territories. No separate licensing or contracts required.

User location detected

Address verification from Loqate detects which country users are in, finding the nearest matching addresses first. If the address is outside the user's country, the rest of the world is automatically searched for matches. Allows you to create a single checkout form for all your customers in the world.

Tailored settings

Settings can be tailored to enable address verification for the countries and territories where you have customers. If your business grows internationally, you can change settings without the assistance of a developer.

'Fuzzy' error prevention

Our unique 'fuzzy matching' capability makes everything clear. Misspellings are corrected, abbreviations completed and missing information filled in.

  • Spelling mistakes

    If you're not sure about the spelling of words in an address or accidentally hit a wrong key, our address verification tool can still understand what you meant to write. This can be very handy for internal systems too where addresses may be taken over the phone and are not spelled how they sound.

  • Switched letters

    It's really common for people to switch adjacent letters around in words when they type, for example Raod (Road) and Mian (Main). Our tool detects this and can still understand what the user was looking for.

  • Missing words and letters

    If you only know parts of an address or simply want to identify your address more quickly. Loqate's software will find your address even with words and letters missing.

  • Abbreviations or nicknames

    If you shorten words in an address, using common abbreviations - like Blvd for Boulevard, or use familiar, regional names for suburbs that have since been swallowed up into city districts, our technology can still identify the address you're looking for and return the full, valid address.

  • Missing or extra spaces

    Sometimes it's not clear whether a street name or place is made of one word or two, maybe it's hyphenated. Our address verification tool works to find the address even when users are unsure of the correct spacing or accidentally add too many spaces between words or letters.
