This plugin is unique in that it allows you to add a Google Address Autocomplete to anything on your WordPress website. It is not made to be specific for any one e-commerce, form, LMS, or other WordPress plugin… is compatible with them all!
Address Autocomplete is my favorite feature on any e-commerce site or any time I need to fill out a form on a website. Originally built for our other plugin, Sunshine Photo Cart, I realized I could make this available to work for anything.
What is Address Autocomplete
Address autocomplete is a form feature that suggests addresses to your user as they type. Clicking a selected address will then populate all the relevant fields in your form making it quicker and easier for your user to complete.
How it works
By using CSS selectors (don’t worry non-tech person, it is easier than you think and a simple help article and video is available!), you can add Address Autocomplete to Anything! Provide a selector for which input field on your page you want to trigger the address autocomplete when a user types, and then the CSS selectors to target for the address data that is returned from Google.
What you need
You only need to get a Google Maps API key. Although billing info is required, most sites will never be charged as the free limit is quite high.
