Loqate vs

How Loqate and Data8 differ

While both Data8 and Loqate offer an address lookup tool, Loqate provides a faster, easier way to capture and verify addresses in your online forms and checkouts.

Real-time address search

As soon as a business name, street or postcode is typed, suggestions to auto-complete the address are immediately provided. Faster than other solutions on the market, our platform enables customers to find any address in as little as three keystrokes and as quickly as 150 milliseconds.

Instantly international

A single, simple-to-use solution for searching and verifying addresses from 250 countries and territories. No separate licensing or contracts required. Easily toggle to suit your business needs.

AFD only offers an international solution for their postcode lookup, not type-ahead address lookup. But as not all countries operate with a postcode system, that might not be the best solution for you.

Language is no barrier

Ideal for businesses operating in multiple territories, we offer full Unicode support to allow your customers to use their own native language and character set to search for and enter their address.
