OverviewBack to top
FedEx is consistently ranked among the world’s most admired brands. The company is known for its overnight shipping service and pioneering a system that could track packages and provide real-time updates on package location. FedEx offers the best of both worlds - global reach backed by local expertise.
FedEx usually ships items to two types of locations—Business and Residential. Commercial addresses are generally the locations which are considered as commercial real estate. These locations are usually classified as a warehouse that has trailer access and a loading dock. Residential addresses, on the other hand, are any business location that is operated from a home, apartment, or any other similar area where people live. Delivery trucks usually enter these areas to perform the final delivery. The overall shipping charges are also slightly higher than that of commercial addresses.
FedEx Address Validation extension uses FedEx’s Address Validation API . This service validates recipient addresses before the package is shipped, to determine whether an address is business or residential (for U.S. and Canada only) to increase the accuracy of courtesy rate quotes from FedEx.
Every time a customer enters an address in the Cart page, the FedEx Address Validation extension sends the request to FedEx API. FedEx then checks the address and validates the request, if correct. It sends the valid shipping service along with rates back to the extension which is then updated on the Checkout page. If you have FedEx address validation extension enabled,even when you mark the address as residential or not, the FedEx address validation extension will validate the address and return the rates based on that.
