    Default UK Postcode Lookup

    Here is a guide on how to add UK Postcode lookup to your Zen Cart,

    I hope that you find this usefull, also includes a pre-edited file to save you the hassle of adding in the code.

    I had been wanting to add such a lookup to Zen Cart for a while but never got the chance to sit down and work it out, today i have done that and thought i would share it with you all.


    Thanks
    Rob

    Hi

    This Postcode lookup tool is great

    But i have one problem

    How do i get the postcode lookup tool on the checkout page where you can change your shipping address and on the address book page where you add a new address book entry.

    Yes this is a paid for service. You buy credits which are then depleted with each lookup. However, they give you some credits up front to test your installation, so maybe you're living on those.

    No. The Royal Mail licenses owns the rghte to postcode information and licenses it (google "PAF"). So any service provider will be paying for the data that they serve to you and will want to charge you in return.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the code and documentation Rob. I'm currently looking into building the postcode look-up tool on the shipping and address book page within Zen Cart too.

    In terms of cost the service is licensed purely on a credit pack based system - there are no other costs involved. Having said that, you are more than welcome to register for a free account with us and we can provide you with some free test credits to have a play around.

    We have plenty of code samples and documentation on our website which can be found here: www.postcodeanywhere.co.uk.

    If any of you guys have any questions or neeed any assistance with this let me know.

    Thanks,

    Hi guys,

    yes as has been said it's based on credits which are purchased in advance, from what i remember you get 20 searches for free when you signup,

    I have not been using ZC for around 9 months now and have moved to another business, does anyone know if this works with 1.3.9? or does it need updating?

    Thanks

    Rob
