AfterPay provides several localized look-up services to fetch the shoppers address. Look-up services minimize the amount of data that shoppers need to enter. The following information is needed to perform look-up services:
|Country||Information required for lookup|
|Norway||Mobile number, postal code|
|Finland||SSN, postal code|
If the shoppers data is found, the shoppers personal details will be returned. If the shoppers data is not found, or if the customer look-up service is not being used, the shopper will be asked to enter all required information. Please refer to the CheckoutCustomer in AfterPay API documentation to see what information needs to be provided in the latter case.
Note: Customer look-up is currently available for private persons (B2C customers) only. Currently, it is not possible to look up B2B customers (companies) with this function.
See an example for Sweden below:
Check of the delivered customer addresses as well as a phonetic and associative identification of duplicates. Additionally, checks of client specific negative or positive lists can be processed. Usually, the AddressCheck is used for the pure verification of the address data e.g. for registration processes. Please refer to ValidateAddress in AfterPay API documentation to get more information.
