Smooth delivieries with what3words


The what3words plugin helps you capture what3words addresses using an address validation field. By giving a what3words address, your customers can accurately pinpoint their desired delivery destination. what3words is a global addressing system that provides the simplest way to communicate location. It has divided the world into 3 metre squares and assigned each one a unique address made of just 3 words. It is more accurate than traditional street addressing, and even allows location information to be captured for places without addresses, such as parks or beaches.

How does this help your business?

It’s quick and easy to implement the what3words plugin. what3words addresses can be converted to GPS coordinates, which can then be passed on to delivery drivers. With a what3words address, deliveries can then arrive precisely in the right place and on time, giving a more reliable delivery experience for your customers.

And for your customers?

Your customers will have the option of providing the what3words address for their delivery location at the Checkout page for Shopify Plus stores and the Cart page for Shopify Basic stores. This gives them a way of providing a delivery location without the need to add complicated delivery instructions and helps give them peace of mind that their delivery will be made to the right place, helping them to trust your business.

How does it work?

This plugin allows your customers to easily enter and validate a what3words address at the

  • Checkout page for Shopify Plus stores;
  • Cart page for Shopify Basic stores;

Powered by our AutoSuggest feature, the what3words returns suggestions based on full or partial what3words addresses, helping users with the following types of input errors:

  • 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, such as a customer’s front door or specific entrance of a larger building.
