We have customers that forget to add their apt # or make a typo while inputting their shipping address during checkout. Endicia catches it before we ship, but we still have to email them, wait on a reply, sometimes follow up with call after no email response, leave a message, wait on a return call, etc... major time and effort headache/expense.
We'd like the shipping address checked in live time during checkout so that the customer can be alerted and prompted for verification and/or correction if needed immediately during the checkout process. A quick google search reveals numerous 3rd party Magento extensions to do this that I'd think would be an easy install into Zoey if not practical for Zoey to develop it's own native live address checker.
As an example, one we ran across and liked is addrexx.com as it seemed to catch missing apt #'s better (some of the other address checkers we tested didn't catch missing apt #'s as long as the street name and number were correct) and the user interface seems to be pretty good. It also has predictive text auto fill capabilities for quicker checkouts. They have a demo store at http://magento.addrexx.com/ in which you can add an item to cart, go to checkout, and demo their address checker as our customers would experience.
