what3words is a global addressing system. It has divided the world into a grid of 3m x 3m squares and assigned each one a unique 3 word address. what3words is more accurate than traditional street addressing, and even allows location information to be captured for places without addresses, such as parks or beaches.
The 3 word address validation field plugin created by what3words allows you to easily integrate 3 word addresses into your OpenCart site.
Returning suggestions based on full or partial 3 word addresses, its AutoSuggest feature helps users with the following types of input error:
- typing errors
- spelling errors
- misremembered words (e.g. singular vs. plural) or words in the wrong order
We recommend using the plugin when you want to capture a precise location from a user. This could be the exact location of your customer’s front door, for example, for delivering their purchase.
BUILD MORE WITH WHAT3WORDS
what3words is available in most of the official UN languages, as well as several others. 3 word addresses are pre-assigned and are much easier to remember than lat/long coordinates.
