Frequently asked questions

What is Address Autofill?

Address Autofill provides address search and autocomplete functionality for address forms on the web and mobile apps.

Users can search for an address from a single search bar, then select an address from a list of validated results that dynamically responds to user input. When a validated address is selected, individual address form fields automatically populate with the correct address components (e.g., street number, name, suffix, city, state/region, and zip/postcode). Address Autofill also provides a visual map so that users can confirm the address’s accuracy and adjust the map pin as necessary.

Address Autofill contains all of the code needed to get up and running in a short time – making it faster and more cost-effective to build an optimal checkout experience.

What are the primary features of Address Autofill?

The primary features of Address Autofill are:

  • Autocomplete: Suggests valid addresses based on users’ keystrokes. Users can select a validated result from the list, eliminating the need to type their full address.
  • IP Proximity: Seamlessly incorporates users’ IP addresses into the search parameters, delivering more relevant results with fewer keystrokes, especially for queries that begin with common address fragments, such as “123 Main Street.”
  • Address Verification: All addresses suggested via Autocomplete are valid addresses in the database and will not present interpolated addresses.
  • Address Correction: When a user enters all or part of an address manually, and it does not exactly match a known address, a dialogue box appears (i.e., "Did you mean?") and displays the most likely valid address. Users can select this address or continue with their original submission. This can be configured to check against any feature data, including address match codes.
  • Form Fill: Once the user selects a validated address, form fill automatically populates individual address form fields with the correct address components.
  • Confirmation Map: Displays either a static map that visually enables users to confirm the address is accurate or a dynamic map that allows users to adjust the pin to make a correction or specify a more precise delivery location.

What address metadata is available?

For the initial release of Address, Autofill Zip+4 will be available. Other enriched metadata will be added later this year. If interested in additional metadata, please contact us.

What are the use cases of Address Autofill?

You can use Address Autofill on any website or mobile device where there is a form requiring users to fill out an address, such as a checkout page or delivery form.

What are the key benefits of Address Autofill?

The key benefits of Address Autofill include:

  • Speed and ease to use. With Address Autofill, users only need ten keystrokes on average to find the correct address vs. 35 keystrokes in traditional address forms.
  • Increased completion rates. Users are more likely to complete forms with autocomplete.
  • More accurate data. Because Address Autofill only suggests valid addresses, address data quality will be higher. This can improve data analysis, reduce costly shipping mistakes, and lower credit card processing fees.
  • Enhanced UX. Address Autofill improves the overall user experience by reducing friction and instills confidence with the confirmation map.
  • Incremental revenue. According to the Baymard Institute, eCommerce sites can increase conversion by 35% with an optimized checkout experience. Address Autofill improves one of the most cumbersome checkout page elements, directly impacting conversion and driving incremental revenue.

How is Address Autofill different from other address autofill/autocomplete solutions?

Address Autofill is thoughtfully designed for users and developers.

For users, Address Autofill provides a unique confirmation map (included in the per-session price) that enables users to confirm their address and adjust the map pin as necessary. Our quality assurance team reviews all adjustments and, if they are legitimate, used to update and improve our dataset.

For developers, Address Autofill orchestrates the handoffs between feature data and web interaction, enriches feature results with helpful metadata and match codes, and provides rich UI web components to enable a great user experience.

Where is Address Autofill available?

Address Autofill is available in countries where Mapbox has coverage. We have good coverage in many countries, including the United States, Canada, Australia, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. For all remaining countries that Mapbox has data, we’ll continue to work to make Address Autofill available in those countries in the future.

How is Address Autofill billed?

Billing for Address Autofill is on a per-session basis. Session-based billing is different from Mapbox’s Temporary and Permanent Geocoding, which bills per request (i.e., for each HTTP request sent to the Mapbox server). In our Core SDK or the pure API usage, a session consists of one or more “suggest” calls that conclude with a “retrieve” call. Our Web SDK extends the definition of a session to encapsulate usage of any combination of Autofill web components (e.g., address suggestion and selection, confirmation, minimap) within a one-page view, even if there are multiple address forms on the page (e.g., billing and shipping).
