AFD Postcode Evolution® for Magento is a Magento extension that allows you to harness the full power of AFD Software’s Postcode Evolution® web service within your own ecommerce store. Using this extension, your customers will have a simplified checkout experience.
When inputting their address, they simply need to input the postal/zip code and the rest of the address data will automatically be imported to the relevant fields in the address form.

Once you have completed the form, click “Save Config”. Now you can browse to any form in the frontend or backend to check the functionality of the extension.
When a postcode returns multiple options for a lookup, a popup list box will appear giving the user the opportunity to choose the correct address. This popup box is a standard jQueryUI dialog and can easily be styled to match your website’s design via CSS. Simply edit the file:
Remember to keep a copy of this file when updating to new versions of the plugin so that your changes will not be lost.
